Good food especially their salads. Can be a bit expensive though. Deserts are beautiful. Not that fond of the layout and communal tables. It's terribly cluttered so near impossible to navigate with a wheelchair or buggy

Only went in here recently cause my regular place was full and I was peckish as this was a late lunch. Soups are available daily and a particular good one is the Seafood Chowder, both eating and drinking in it and served with wholemeal brown bread. Personally I like three of their selection the Beef bap, the Tuna Melt bap... More

Have visited Zest many times when staying in Ennis and generally loved the coffee, food and atmosphere. Last few visits were so disappointing as our family stopped there for lunch twice. On one occasion , one staff behind the counter was very abrupt and rude when my daughter asked a simple question about a cake. There didn't seem to be... More

I love zest. That says it all. They do cakes to die for. They have lovely baps and sandwiches. Fresh soup and breads daily. They cater for parties and Christmas at home. Staff are so friendly and helpful.

Saw several glowing reports about this little market/cafe/bakery and it did not disappoint! Had a wonderful selection of healthy, tasty salads and simple roasted chicken. I had a hard time choosing just two types of salad to go with chicken- and ended up with plenty leftover for another meal. Staff was very helpful and the atmosphere was great. Highly recommend.
