Bakery Update!

Hi all!

Since this is our LAST WEEK OPEN on Arroyo, we wanted to share a little update on where we are and our current plans.

Our last day open for retail is still this Sunday, October 15th.

We have secured a new spot in San Carlos and will be moving over to it after we close on the 15th. We will need some time to get our new kitchen set up but hope to be back in business in November before Thanksgiving so that we can resume cake orders and provide you with our famous glutenfree survival kits!

We are taking the “break” as an opportunity to examine the business, fine-tune our menus, and see how we can best meet the needs of the glutenfree community.

We’ll post again after we get set up with more details.

Thanks so much for all the encouragement and support we’ve received since we shared our news.

With love,

-The Zest Crew

  1. I am so glad for you guys. I couldn’t believe that you guys weren’t going to be there any more. Love and here’s to another fabulous cozy facility.

  2. Yay! This is wonderful news!! We live in SF, but have friends in SC and make a point to stop in whenever we were in the area. We love your food and especially love that it is all GF!! We would love to see a bit more of a range of menu items (such as at Kyra’s Bakeshop in Lake Oswego, OR), and a larger dining area. We will excitedly await your re-opening!

  3. Oh thank goodness you are coming back🙏My daughter told me last week about the closing & it was sad😞The team at Zest is caring & work hard supplying us the Best Gluten-Free selections.Its always fresh & quality ingredients🦋This is great news & now the holidays will be filled with food for everyone👏💞

  4. Hi Zest team, so glad that you found a new space and are taking the time to re-evaluate your new opportunities. Are you still taking orders for holiday (Thanksgiving) survival kits? Thanks!

    1. Yes, our hope is to be able to provide thanksgiving survival kits! stay tuned! We hope to announce that we will start taking orders for them soon!

  5. So happy to hear you have found a new location. Your store is an oasis for those who are gluten free. As well as for people who want to buy something to serve to those who are GF! Look forward to the new store. Thank you!

  6. Just stopped in San Carlos on my way down south to excitedly pick up things for my third visit and am very sad to find you don’t exist anymore. :'(

  7. So glad to hear you will be reopening. I’m hoping that will be in time for Thanksgiving because I love your pecan pie and want to order one for this year. Will we receive an email from you or do we need to check in to your web site daily to find out when you are taking orders. I LOVE YOUR PECAN PIE>

  8. So Clarrisa;

    As an enthusiastic follower of Zest bakery while on Arroyo St. I am looking forward dot finding out your new address. Where will you be selling your items and where (besides the internet)can we purchase the items? I would love to know your place of business now!


    1. Hi Patriica! Now that the holidays are out of the way we are actively accepting cake orders and exploring distribution opportunities for other items. Thinking about a monthly box of treats for example or a pick up day. We will definitely share when we have more details, but in the meantime you can still enjoy our cakes!

  9. Hi,
    Just a note to say how much I LOVE your pecan pie. It made my Thanksgiving and Christmas. I purchased two at Thanksgiving and froze one of them for Christmas. The frozen one was just as delicious.

    Do you ever make this pie during the year? Can it be a special order?

    Happy New Year! I hope it is healthy and prosperous.

  10. What items are you selling?

    What are the ingredients? We are not celiac but cannot have wheat, oat or flax.

    What are the prices?

    Do you only do Saturday pickup orders or pickup at a Draeger’s or will you have a retail store?

    Thank you

    1. Hi Sheila. Please see the orders area of our website for our current offerings and pricing.

      Currently we are only offering the Saturday pickup and Draeger’s delivery. However for catering and other orders over $200 we do offer delivery/pickup.


  11. Dear Charissa;

    I am somewhat confused to your offer of a DRaeger’spickup. According to your notes to customers, you offer pick up On Saturdays; do you also deliver to Draegers on Saturdays. Does this only refer to cakes or to other deli items?
    I hope that Zest continues to flourish as it has always been my favorite GF resource!

    Pat Shinn

    1. Yes, you can do pickups at our new location on Saturdays and we can also deliver to Draeger’s Saturdays and other days as well.

      1. Patrick -if you are the owner of Zest Bakery can you tell me if you will
        be opening to the public anytime soon? Thanks – June

  12. I ave only been to Zest one time. I loved it. Shortly after you moved the Bakery and I kept waiting for it to open. I live out of the area and I never saw it open. Are you open at your new location? Thank you
