The eatery’s day menu includes bagels, salads, wraps, and classic sandwiches, served alongside freshly blended smoothies and freshly made Lavazza coffee. Zesty Cafe also provides catering services for working lunches, meetings, celebrations, and client presentations. The charming and modern space was designed for guests to relax, gather, or network according to their pleasure, with availability for private rentals.
“Our goal is simple: to provide exceptional food that delights the senses and warms the heart, all at an affordable price,” Li remarked.”We look forward to welcoming both familiar faces and newcomers to Zesty Cafe.”
