I go to zest every morning for the perfect coffee. Staff are really friendly and helpful here. They do great cakes, breads, cupcakes and prepared meals. They have great baps, panninis, salads and snacks. You wont be disappointed.

Zest is a great place for all sorts of cakes to take away or eat in. A crunchie bar with a coffee on a Friday starts the weekend! Cappuccino can be hit and miss sometimes, but staff are pleasant and surroundings are nice in the Ennis cafe.

Visited this place for lunch today with my sister and was delighted we called in. The cafe was so colourful and atmosphere was lovely. Salads were delicious and so fresh and seats are very comfy. Cakes and bread look delicious. Can borrow books to read while you're there, thought it was a great idea. Staff were very friendly and overall... More
