Nasi goring was too salty. My butter chicken was weird. Not the best. Large meals. Waitress was very disinterested. No greeting on arrival and never smiled once ! Would not go back

My friend, her daughter and I ended up having lunch here and we enjoyed the ambience and the food. I found the Zest Benedict food servings to be large but as my friend had previously been here, she had initially ordered. After surveying the menu online, later on, I discovered that there are mini benedicts which are better for my... More

An impromptu lunch for a little shopping was very nice. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent.

Stopped here for Saturday breakfast. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Loved my avocado with haloumi. Coffee was excellent. We picked this cafe as it appeared to have the most people in it, we weren't disappointed.

Breakfast for a lazy Sunday turned into something akin to a comedy; except we weren't laughing. My wife ordered a meal of fried egg on sourdough whilst I ordered eggs on wholemeal. When the meals came and I started eating, I found that the eggs were both barely warm and certainly not hot. Sitting in the kitchen for a while... More

Grabbed a quick breakfast with a mate after picking him up from the airport. He highly recommended it and the food/coffee met the mark in my opinion. The good thing about this place is it is on Racecourse road so there is plenty to do around that area. There is parking underneath (Coles) and when we arrived, although it was... More

Enjoyed breakfast Thursday & Friday morning before a conference. The food and coffee was excellent, the service was good and the location, just off the street, was private and nicely decorated. Nothing bad to say - even the prices were reasonable. Thoroughly recommend the cooked beakfast - poached eggs, tomatoes & wiltered spinach leaves and the natural juices which they... More

Unhelpful, disinterested service . . . She was on her mobile so neglected to even see me waiting for service. Salad was good . . . Ingredients were fresh. I would have preferred more flavour, but it was ok. Large meal and a reasonable price. Cutlery dirty and the bowl was chipped . . . Lacking attention to detail.

3 of us went for breakfast. Being vegetarian i was happy to see a variety of options. Coffee was a good standard. Everyone happy with taste and quantity of meals. We fid notice the seating area could do with some maintenance. Plants half dead and wood off seating area. Other than that we will be back next time in town.

My partner and I have enjoyed breakfast here on a number of occasions; it's close to home and nice to have somewhere so close for Sunday brunch. Zest is also just the spot for a quick coffee before tackling the grocery shopping at the supermarket next door. Service is good, the staff are always attentive and helpful. The dining space,...
