Could not believe how quiet this cafe was for a lunch time in Bath. However after having ordered a pot of tea and a hot panini, I realised why it was so quiet, i had drunk my three cups of tea and no sign of my panini. After my wife asked where our panini's were they eventually arrived, warm rather than hot. During this period I witnessed the manager having to give another customer their money back. It was quiet and they could not cope, I would hate to be in this cafe on a busy Saturday in Bath.

Just went to ths cafe for cup of coffee with my one year 2 months old son. Omg what a horrible experience I had..cafe itself very cozy but one lady staff quiet fat don't know her name tho.. She was sooo rude no please can words nothing. She ask me to get high hair on my own n I was the only customer they had in that cafe plus she has got another staff I help her too. N then I asked for capacino n she gave me horrible watery coffee.. Then I asked for another one she made late..
I was just finished work n picked my on from nersery n thought I could have nice coffee n relax in zest as I went thr before too n tht was good experienced but ths women really ruined my day with her best rudeness..
N yes she said they can't serve hot sandwiches after 4 pm but I remember having it before at 5 pm.. Expensive drinks n pastry n on top rude staff
I m expecting if I go another time wish to get helpful n polite staff

Used to frequent Jollys in the early to mid 90s with my parents. Lots of great times had in the Cafe and Restaurant there. It had changed as I had not been there for around six years.

We got off the bus from Lansdown Rd and popped straight in for coffee, hot chocolate, shortbread, scones and jam. We were made to feel incredibly welcome, had great chats with the staff and relaxed there a while. Will always return here to take time out....

We have breakfasted a few times at Cafe Zest, whilst shopping in Bath. A much quieter alternative to M & S or Waitrose cafes. However, the set up has changed, whereby the order is taken at the counter rather than the table and the breakfast menu has changed. Nothing wrong with the breakfasts and the beverages and the service was good, but more economic than previously. Still scores as a quiet venue in a busy city
