Zest Cafe opened last month at 2740 South Wadsworth Boulevard, and owner Andrew Krull and his crew have been serving up organic, locally-sourced cafe fare to an appreciative crowds ever since.
"We make everything from scratch, including the bread," Krull says, "and we have an amazing baker with thirty years of experience who bakes some really unique desserts."
Here's a look at the space:
"I had been looking for a space for a while, but it seemed like every time I came across one, someone else grabbed it," recalls Krull. "But then I remembered seeing that this place had been empty for a while -- I actually grew up right across the street, coincidentally -- and so I figured I'd come back to the neighborhood."
Zest is currently open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; in addition to sandwiches, salads and soups, there's a raw vegetarian dish every day. Krull also hopes to obtain a liquor license soon, and plans to have an affordable wine selection along with eight beers on tap, most of which will be local.
