Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner. Many choices, all different from the usual restaurant menus. Salads, sandwiches, appetizers, entrees - from a world-wide selection.

Eating at Zest is always a pleasant experience. Ben and Marvin make it their business to get to know customers on a first name basis. The menu changes offer and the food is always great.

Had a girlfriends' lunch and ordered the Cubano. It was one of the tastiest Cuban sandwiches I've ever eaten! The bread was perfect; pork was juicy; side fruit was fresh and tasty. Their raspberry iced tea was superb! This place is Wow!
