Lovely café' style venue, we sat outside for brunch where we were entertained with live music and were presented with good sized, yummy meals. We would definitely visit again when down these ways.

If you are passing through Gisborne and in need of a coffee break we recommend a stop at Zest. The coffee was excellent and made as we requested. Staff were pleasant and efficient.
