Welcome To Zest
Hi and thanks for checking us out online.
If you didn’t know, we are based in the heart of St Andrews in Scotland and have been busy catering for the kind of people that really appreciate great quality produce. Our Café in South Street has the best trained baristas serving up the very best coffee the area has to offer, alongside a superb range of home made foods which include awesome soups, bagels and cakes.
However, it is not only the great things to eat and drink at Zest that makes us special, it is our philosophy of togetherness as a group of people that makes us both unique and proud. We hope you like what you see and read on our website.
We’d love to see you in person for a coffee. Try our Guest Espresso and something great to eat.
The Zest Philosophy
At Zest we help support people facing barriers to employment by providing a friendly, inclusive workplace to learn and develop. We work as a team to provide good quality work training placements for people who need a helping hand into employment. We take pride in our endeavors and celebrate our successes as a group. We believe this collective attitude is what makes us different and is reflected in our name:
Together We Are Zest.
Great Quality Coffee
In addition to our employment philosophy we believe in a great quality product served by an enthusiastic and motivated team. We love what we sell and our team are all well trained in everything we do, which is reflected in our coffee, tea and food. We only use quality loose leaf tea for a truly different experience – no teabags for us! There is coffee and there is Speciality coffee. Our coffee is Speciality Grade only.
Unlike the big coffee shop chains you find on every high street of the world, Zest is a part of the community and instead of serving up the same old beans, the baristas go out of their way to source new roasts for us locals to try. Great staff, great coffee and great new refurb – good effort guys!
I am loving the new look Zest! Great new awnings to cover the outdoor seating, super idea (this is Scotland after all). Whoever thought of putting on a bagel menu BTW, brilliant. Best Coffee in town by a mile…
