A friend and I (in our 40s) went to lunch here midweek around 1:15pm. Zest was packed and we were the youngest customers there. This is definitely a place where "ladies who lunch" go. You have to enter through the gift shop to get to the restaurant. I have no idea how getting around in that shop is ADA compliant... More

I had heard rave reviews about Zest and finally got a chance to dine there but was not impressed for a return visit. It is a small cafe inside a Home Goods kind of store. The prices on these items were very pricey so I am not sure how much business that part of the shop does. When we arrived,... More

Locally owned restaurant with a wonderful menu that changes with the seasons. I have never had a bad meal here. Lots of fresh ingredients combined in a myriad of ways. Great salads! Save room for dessert. All are delish - but the chocolate silk pie is to die for!

The menu is a mix of terrific choices - always with something surprising. The catfish sandwich is scrumptious, the huevos rancheros is tasty and the crispy tortillas makes it different. Turkey burgers, salads, plenty of vegetarian choices, soups - yes, I've been here many times and it's always been very good or better. The friendly and helpful wait staff makes... More

This was a wonderful selection for Ladies' Luncheon! The menu selection is wonderful and they offered HALF PRICE WINE (we visited on Saturday July 19th). The staff was very pleasant and courteous. The catfish sandwich was WONDERFULLLL! They also sell wonderful home art! I will definitely visit again.

Excellent menu with enticing mix of selections which change often and are different even for lunch. The owners and kitchen team really know their stuff. This food was scrumptious - pics attached don't do it justice! This night, plentiful portions of Veggie Lasagna over white cheddar risotto, Cashew Crusted Chicken with slaw, avocado ++, Korean beef Tacos with spicy dipping... More

We live in N Raleigh and this is a gem of a cafe and gift shop. The owners do a great job of displaying all their gifts in the store in a charming setting in a small shopping center. We go there frequently to eat and the menu changes fairly often. I love their chicken salad plate. It's not the... More

I always get big smiles and thanks from the recipients of gifts from Zest. You cannot go wrong with anything from their gift shop for the ladies in your life. Also they have darling gifts for young children and infants. Fun place to browse and luncheon.

The dinner menu wasn't extensive but gave a good range of options including vegetarian. In our group of eight, six different entrees were ordered. Everyone commented how good their food was. My selection (house salad with grilled shrimp) was fresh and the shrimp were grilled perfectly. The portion sizes are ample. Their coconut cake is to die for! The service... More

This is a great little place...neighborhood restaurant and café. I eat here about once a week. The wait staff is attentive and friendly, the raspberry iced tea is yummy, and the food is always fresh and delicious. The home art items are pricey if you plan on shopping, but for special gifts you may want to splurge...they provide cute gift... More
