A toast menu is something Zest co-owners, Jordan and Natalie Helman were always hoping to achieve...it was just about timing.

The couple first started experimenting with toast creations in their home kitchen, and eventually wanted to bring them to Zest. 

After brainstorming with Zest's Chef Alyse Cho, the team has come up with 4 new toast recipes. Sweet, tangy, spicy, and a couple will even take you on a trip down memory lane. Here’s the best part, many of the toast ingredients are LOCAL.

Zest is committed to the Central Ohio community and supporting local businesses. That's why the team specifically sought out finding local bakers. Located in The Short North, Laughlin's Bakery's baked goods celebrate traditional methods and are handcrafted from the finest ingredients. Gluten-Free options from Ohio based, Eban’s Bakehouse are also on the menu! 

Zest Toasts capture the flavors you’re craving without unnecessary fats, sugars or preservatives. They are a perfect wholesome snack for any time of the day, and they carry a “You’ll Eat Every Last Crumb” guarantee!
