You will feel like being in a London café as soon as you step inside Zest. The two owners have created a beautiful urban space with a less busy theme, light colour wood, marble countertops, and black detailing. At the front, there are shelves with a selection of organic products for sale, some of which are also found in the menu. All types of quinoa, muesli, dried fruit, different kinds of sugar, rice and olive oil, pasta, canned legumes, and even a range of baby food. You can sit down and order coffee, selected and roasted just for Zest by selected suppliers. The house blend always remains unchanged, while the single origin varieties change from time to time. There is also tea, ranging from Irish Breakfast to Green and Mountain. They also make enjoyable cakes, which you can have with your hot drink. When we went there, there was an unbelievable cake with chocolate and candied orange slices. There is also breakfast in the morning, and their own granola is worth a try. As for lunch, there are creative salads and interesting dishes. They don’t always feature the same food on the menu; they are very particular about using local, seasonal and fresh products. This goes hand in hand with the philosophy of the shop. It is best to make a reservation if you plan to have lunch at Zest. There is also brunch on the weekend.
Open Monday-Friday 08:00-17:30 and Saturday 10:00-15:00.
