Called Zest now. Do not miss this place. Tiny space, amazing food and incredible service. The kids loved their meals too. Wish we were staying longer to return again.

“What the mountains needs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

My partner and I have been visiting fresh for years now so were apprehensive when we heard that it was now Zest. After hearing that it was still the same owners and staff we decided to we must venture in and sample the new menu and new environment.
The new decor is pleasing and relaxing, with a simple colour scheme and a few splashes of colour.
The new menu is wonderful, a must try is the pulled pork sandwich from the lunch menu or the shakshuka which can be had all day.
It is so wonderful to finally see a cafe doing something different, anyone can make a simple breakfast or lunch and its nice to be presented with such quality menu choices. I can't wait to try dinner here!
To finish, the staff here are lovely, they work hard and always with a smile on their face, even when it's crazy busy. As a former waitress I can sympathize, the shifts are long and often without a break but these girls don't show it. Good work girls its greatly appreciated!

“Delicious for dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Had a lovely evening at Zest. Claire, our hostess, was very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious, highly recommend the chicken breast with quinoa and fennel salad. Very fresh and tasty. The Pannacotta dessert is to die for, so decadent!! I will be back...

“Eat the burger!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

The service took a bit getting used to, I guess, this was due to my jet lag.
This place is famous for different kinds of coffee.
However, the Wagyu burger served with red cabbage was simply outstanding.
Go for the burger.

“Great cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We always come here when we're in the Blue Mountains, usually for brunch. We've been here at least 5 times and never had a bad experience. The Eggs Hollandaise are awesome!!! It's quite small though so be prepared to wait if it's busy.
