Don’t get the zest vege breakfast! Grey potato cakes, fried tomatoes from a can (?), nice avo but only one piece of toast to eat it on for $17. When I asked for a second piece the chef refused, I had to pay. I sent half the meal back (all the grey potato) on moral grounds. Won’t return or recommend.

Subject: Zest Breakfast
“It is inconceivable that a customer complains because they have asked for additional item(s) for their meal and expect to get them free of charge. The potato cakes are made fresh and additionally contain garlic, basil and oil and they will slightly oxidise – it is the nature of things. Tinned tomatoes? Hmm. The tomatoes take between 2-4 hours to prepare and contain garlic, basil, black pepper and are slow roasted. I thought this forum was for customers to give considered feedback to the retailer – not to moan about not getting a freebie or, like the previous ‘moaner’ keeping other customers waiting for tables whilst they use our cafe as a waiting room for friends. Sheesh!!!”
We left before placing our orders after rude treatment by the manager. Understand the cafe was busy and under pressure but no excuse for rudeness. Left feeling thoroughly dissatisfied. The food looked good but would certainly not recommend due to the standard of the management.
I have visited this lovely cafe many times and to be honest, absolutely love this place. The staff, food, atmosphere are great. I brought my mother here and she was quite impressed with the food, which makes the experience that much better. Definitely a favorite.
Enjoyed a very nice latte and muffin while on a short visit. Would come again
