    This place is so awesome. I love coming here for the turkey cranberry sandwiches and the goodies, like almond tea cakes. I'm doing gluten-free for health reasons (no celiac). It's helped my sister with her migraines, and I'm hoping it will help with mine.

    Not my favorite. I do love the almond cake and the cinnamon rolls but the bread is weird tasting IMO and the service is terrible. I prefer the bread from Ducks and Dragon Bakery.

    Zest is GREAT ! We were driving through on our way to Big Sur and the woman that helped us gave us great recommendations in the area. Get the lemon poppyseed cake and the almond cakes - they're to die for !

    Dedicated facility. Amazing for my family to be able to walk in and pick out anything in the case! They don't have a huge selection of pastries but they also bake to order.

    delicious sandwich on Focaccia bread (I chose to build my own). the bread was great -super tasty. The server also gave me a sample of the multigrain bread which scared me it was so good (I thought may e it wasn't gluten. free so I asked - everything is!). Had the "fo-reo" cookie, pretty good, a maple donut which was delicious with a good texture and also the lemon poppy glazed mini loaf for breakfast the following day which was my favorite pastry I tried. Wonderful shop, try it!

    I was VERY disappointed because EVERYTHING had potato in it. The food looked beautiful. Everyone seemed to be enjoying it but because I have CD and many allergies including potato I could eat nothing.

    Outstanding service and products. I was confused at first cause there were no gluten free labels but everything is gluten free! I had 2 "crest view sandwiches" which were delicious and almost every cake and cookie to take home. Could not be happier!

    Excellent sandwiches and baked goods, and friendly service. It's been years since I had a cinnamon roll and they make one that is SO good. Will definitely be back again and again 👍🏻

    This place is great. I'm often disappointed with the gluten-free things from Trader Joe's and Safeway, so I was delighted to find a gluten-free bakery that offers so many things I hadn't eaten in years. Their lemon poppy seed loaf is my favorite.

    Visiting the Bay area? Drop by Zest. With fun delicious desserts and a menu that changes daily, this bakery is as much a treat as the sweets it sells. We like their lemon zest poppy seed sweet loaves!

    The absolute BEST gf cinnamon roll I've had. I ate the dairy free version and was over the moon. They had donuts too! On Saturdays they like to come up with different recipes. I had what can only be described as almond chocolate greatness.

    Favorite gluten-free bakery on either coast! Perfect spot for lunch (their sandwiches are excellent) and a little treat, plus you can pick up pasta or other ingredients for dinner while you're at it. I heart Zest.

    Yuk, the bread was awful. Tasted worse than the bread I once made in a bread machine. Back to Udi's again.

    We had sandwiches, a muffin and a cookie. The bread was moist but didn't taste that good. The toppings were good. The muffin was very good but the cookie was not. The tables and the dishes were dirty. It was a little disappointing after reading the other reviews.

    Totally GF bakery. They have a great selection of both regular items (3 berry muffins, lemon-poppyseed loaf, mini-almond cakes, breads & baguettes are our family favorites) as well as a constant rotation of interesting donuts, muffins, cupcakes, cookies. In the frig you'll find GF raviolis, tortellini, pizza crust, pie crust, cheesecake, ice cream sandwiches. Deli sandwiches are great at lunchtime. All organic and taste is better than average to GREAT! I'm never disappointed.

    dedicated GF bakery, with fresh goods baked daily. Not everything is baked everyday, so you never know what you'll find when you walk in.
