The best cafe I think I've ever been in, the friendliest people, the best food. Nothing is too much trouble service is great. We have been in twice now for breakfast and have not been disappointed. Took the children for the first time yesterday who want to go again. Best breakfast ever.

I visit Zaras with my husband and sometimes our children on a regular basis. The food is always amazing and the service is great. Very friendly atmosphere and the children are always offered colouring books and crayons while they wait. 100% recommend and look forward to our next visit.

After looking at all the lovely reviews on this cafe I thought I need to try this place out myself, so gathered a group of friends and decided to go out for a nice breakfast, however it didn't go as planned, when we arrived most of the tables had plates and cups left off on them and the table we...
