Lovely atmosphere and good decor. Clean tables. We ordered club sandwich and the pulled pork bap. Very refreshing smoothie ... club sandwich was a nightmare to eat as the bread was too small for the contents so majority fell out all over the plate so was eaten separately which defeats the point of a club sandwich. Chips very bitty ,... More

We were traveling the country. We were looking for a place to stop for coffee and a little something to eat. Very happy that there was seating outside. After sitting in a car all morning we were hoping for an outdoor spot. The coffee and tea was very nice. The indoor area was beautiful and looked very comfortable.

Called in for a coffee- best coffee so was worth a review. Came with friendly service and the decor was modern and tasteful. Visit Zest if you're passing through or staying! :-)

It's got tables and chairs on the right side of the road to catch some sun. The waiting staff are friendly and helpful. We were a group of four and we had 2 soups, tea and a large salad. Something I didn't like about the place was that unless you had soup, there's nothing on the menu for under 9Euro.... More

This cafe in the centre of Killorglin serves cooked lunches as well as a variety of sandwiches and coffees etc. I had a chicken, bacon and Brie panini, lovely. Not expensive, good, fast service and well worth a visit.
