I have visited Zest off and on for over 10 years and have never been disappointed. On my last visit I had the Dhuka Eggs which were amazing. Well done to the grew at Zest for their quality and service.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast on a visit to Glenelg Beach. A little up the road but easy to find. Eggs with dukkah & pear were amazing..........

Enjoyed an awesome breakfast at the Zest Cafe this morning. Wide selection on menu and service was very good considering they were pretty full. Streetside and indoor options available. Partner demolished dukkah eggs and I enjoyed the muesli. Coffee was strong and enjoyable enough went a second one !!

Tucked away and a little hard to find if not a local. Reasonably priced food for a breakfast, not very fantastic. Presentation on the plate was average for what you pay and the coffee was above average. Had the No.5 (chicken) with bagel. Flavours and the taste was good but it could have been perfect.

This was my favourite restaurant in Glenelg - especially breakfast. Freshly squeezed juice, the best gluten-free bread I have tasted anywhere and great coffee. The smoked bacon was amazing and the cakes were exceptional. I can see why it is so popular.

Found this cafe by chance and happy I did. Sitting outside in the warm weather under the trees there was a refreshing coolness that was very welcome Eggs Benedict and jasmine tea were very good and with free customer wifi it was a very pleasant lunch Super friendly staff too!

I did a quick review of TripAdvisor when looking for a place for breakfast, this was a great find. The bacon and eggs were eggcellant and OMG the Hahndorf bacon was the best I have had. Can highly recommend 🐽🐥
