Start the day off right—better yet, make the most of every moment—at Zest Cafe & Juice Bar in Dennis Village. With a focus on organic fruits and vegetables—and only the freshest ingredients—Zest has something for everyone, including vegan and gluten-free options. “We’re trying to give people all the nutrients your body craves,” says manager Taylor Drew, who made a name for herself at Lemon Press on Nantucket before moving to the mainland last winter.
This summer, her first customers lined up—literally zigzagging through Zest—to grab juices, smoothies, baked goods and paninis before heading to the beach. Now Drew’s focus is on the locals with made-to-order items to be enjoyed in the café’s front, back and “swag” rooms, which are all Wi-Fi-equipped and decorated with staff-made artwork. “We’ve really become like a family here,” says Drew, who credits her multitalented employees and loyal customer base with Zest’s success. In addition to their regular items, the cafe now offers winter specials, cleanses and a catering menu.
