You only need to take one look at the clients in this place to see it is a favourite amongst the long term residents of Koh Tao. Perfect coffee and breakfast to order, can't be beat.

We love zest! It's become our favourite place for breakfast on the island, awesome coffee and great value breakfast (65baht for a delicious vegetable omelette with toast) all served quick and with a smile. Freshly baked bread on site, you can't beat it. awesome staff and vibe.. Definitely the number one breakfast spot for us :)

I live on Koh Tao, and eat at Zest a few times a week, at least. I absolutely love it here! The food is amazing. For sure the best salads on Koh Tao, hands down. They bake all their own bread so the sandwiches are super good as well (try the dark multigrain bread, it's available for all sandwiches/ breakfasts... More

Zest offers a great variety for breakfast and though it may be a little more expensive than others, it's really, really good food! The staff is also really nice and they usually serve the food quickly! Recommended!

The coffee was good. Then we ordered sandwiches - BUT the onions were moldy and rotten. And the staff didn't really care and didn't apologize. We left (they wanted us to pay for the beverages but we denied, because they served moldy food and didn't Care at all).

We were there today just to have a proper coffee and tea. We ordered both a large version. When it arrived my girfriend received a small cup an asked one guy if this was large. He answered quite rude and said she didn't ordered large. Then he walked away. We asked him again if he could take back the order... More
