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.

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.

I already ate a meal at The Market Bar & Restaurant, so wasn't hungry. Ordered a slide of toffee & chocolate cheesecake to go...delicious! The place was packed with people enjoying the food. Everything looks delicious.

This is a definite stopping point for your early morning or mid morning coffee break or meetings. The staff are delightful, the scones, muffins, cakes and sandwiches all excellent and their coffee or hot chocolate very good. A touch pricey it is still worth it as the quality remains consistently high everyday of the week. Bon Appetit!!! Cary Languirand

We absolutely adored this cafe. I recommend it highly!! We went for breakfast and thought the prices were good for the portion size you get. This cafe is easy to get to and worth it!
