Coffee, pastry and light lunch

Very good location. Good coffee, own pastries and selection of light bites. You can also order to go, very tasty cakes for any occasion. Only two tables to sit outside. Not perfect, at least for me, to sit down for a longer time. Not "a cosy" typ of place.

Great coffee value for money sandwichs. Their breads and cakes are excellent and they cater for people with food allergies

What a wonderful place for tea and pastry! We were so lucky to find this cafe. Everything was so fresh! We went twice on our most recent trip to Ennis. We will be back!

Purchased my daughters birthday cake here on Saturday. It was delicious. The cake fell apart and the icing was so tasty. The detail put into this CUPCAKE was admirable, my little girl was very happy.

The cakes, breads and food in general is very good, the cakes can be a little bit on the expensive side but they are well worth it. The service can be slow on a busy day but again its worth the wait. My one complaint is that there really isn't enough seats or space to sit down but all of... More

Visited Zest on a dull rainy day in Ennis having dragged three reluctant kids around the shops for a treat. The selection of buns, cakes deserts and chocolate is fantastic.
