Popped in to grab a sandwich and bottle of water, took one look at the salad, quiche and nut roast and ended up staying for a delicious lunch including pudding! Absolutely fabulous! Enjoy it, we did. Highly recommended.

Great place for lunch in Ennis. Lots of healthy options and sandwiches. Great selection of cakes and pastries. Friendly staff. You can eat in or take food to go.

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!

Very busy and noisy but beautifully decorated with some nice deserts on offer. The lemon meringue pie was terrific

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.

Zest do a fantastic serve-yourself salad bar: you can grab a plate and heap it with a wide variety of stuff. Beany things, potato-y things, tomato-y things. All the ingredients are listed next to the salad bar, so vegans can see what they're getting. Some of the salads do include a little meat, so beware. Zest also do a vegetarian... More

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
