Nice clean decor and excellent service. Bread was so fresh I’m going back to get a loaf today. However, if you’re going to charge $14 for a sandwich then there needs to be A LOT more meat on it. Was delicious but disappointed in how...little meat was there.More

Similar to Subway but much better. You choose your toppings and sandwich was delicious. Clean and bright. Not gluten free but it is a nice breakfast and lunch spot. Lined up even at 2. Popular with locals.

I had the Chicken Bacon Club sandwich there on a multigrain bun. Fresh, delicious bread topped by lemon chicken breast, maple chili bacon and fresh veggies. Served with kettle chips and a dill pickle spear. The service was friendly and fast. Another part of the...cafe sells freshly sliced deli meats and cooked bacon along with some amazing sweets. I’ll be back!More

First time here and what a lunch time lemony delight. Delicious menu, very clean/bright atmosphere, friendly team....and the lemonade...hello! We stayed to eat and to my surprise, we were served on little platters with kettle chips and a pickle slice. I was too full; otherwise,...the dessert display was winking at me. PS*- My son thinks you need to "franchise" (yes, this was our lunch discussion) and move to the former Jungle Jims in Quispamsis.More

What I like about the zesty lemon is the quality of food and ingredients they use in the sandwiches and salads. It is a place that has healthy options but what I would really like to see would be more awareness about ingredients in their...food. I've asked a couple of times about gluten or dairy and got kind a blank look. Labels would be an amazing addition that many customers would appreciate !More

As one might imagine, the Zesty Lemon serves up a delicious, made from scratch-in store, piece of lemon bread.
