Would people eat here if they knew the food was prepped in an industrial kitchen beside Shannon airport (supplier of airport sandwiches)?

We have had lunch here when visiting the park and gallery adjacent. My partner and kids liked the cakes/desserts a lot. I'm just not a sweet tooth. The coffee was reasonably good. Nice salads. I'd actually have preferred just a salad plate on reflection, was better than the 'main' part of the lunch. Would go back and have this instead.... More

Plenty of staff, bright and airy. Good food with plenty of choice and the bonus is the art gallery or Peoples park.

I ordered cakes for special occasions a few times from Zest - cakes are delicious and so cool - they can work with the specific requirements. And price wise they are ok too comparing to the other places - very good value for money. I didn't try cafe but it looks busy anytime I come in to order cake!

Have been here a few times for both coffee and also for lunch. The hot meals are ready made and prepared so you can either have there or take away and heat at home. Good taste but have sometimes felt the portion size a bit small. However on the plus side, opt for a salad instead & there is a... More

I frequent the above cafe fairly regularly.It's contemporary in setting looking onto the peoples park through their large glass windows.I've always found the restaurant clean,the food good (though nothing much changes menu wise) and the staff friendly.One thing that needs addressing are the rain / leak rings in the ceiling which take from the good housekeeping.Either the Art gallery or...
