Love love and Love!

Zest is a beautiful cafe with amazing food! Well worth the drive and worth the money! Food and drink is priced appropriately according to there size and value! Their freashly made cakes are to die for, delicious and tasty. One of the main things I personally LOVE about Zest is the amazing staff members who are lovely to have a chat too and there compassion towards there job is inspiring. By far Zest is my favourite place to come for Breakfast, lunch and a good coffee.

Best option in the area, worth the drive

Great restaurant, always enjoy coming here and the food is first rate. I like the breakfast selection and the staff are always friendly. I've been coming here for a couple of years and it's consistently good.

Constant Perfection!!

Peter and I have been coming regularly to Zest for brunch both Saturdays and Sundays. The coffee is superb and HOT [how we like it] Because of Peters allergies he cannot always have whats on the menu. The staff at Zest have always gone out of their way to give him choices and its no trouble in the kitchen. We love all the staff and the great atmosphere. lesley and Peter

Outstanding All Round!

Absolutely fantastic food every time I've been. I love their Smashed Avo (or pancakes for the kids) for breakfast, or the juicy Pulled Pork Burger (on charcoal buns) for lunch. The service is brilliant too, never had an issue and they're happy to cater to every need (including my somewhat difficult vegan and gluten free wife). And it's in a beautiful town too, makes for a great Sunday drive especially with Puffing Billy! Overall a great little gem hidden in Emerald 10/10

Zest Cafe Overview

Do yourself a favour when visiting Emerald and head to 371 Belgrave-Gembrook Road to discover Zest Café. A modern interior has been styled with a monotone palette, hanging Edison bulb lighting and comfortable booth seating - all flooded with natural light from wide, front windows. Zest’s take on café fare will not disappoint, offering an extensive all-day breakfast menu alongside sumptuous lunch options with a well stocked cabinet of freshly baked cakes and pastries to choose from. Start your morning with an Italian single origin coffee to enjoy with Eggs Atlantic – two English muffins topped with spinach, salmon, poached eggs and hollandaise or join the lunch crowd for the calamari served with a fennel, orange and pine nut salad with lemon, dill and caper aioli served with crunchy chips.
