Sad News Announcement

After seven years in San Carlos, we regret to inform you that that our lease has not been renewed by our landlord. With that, October 15th 2017 will be our last day open to the public.

To accommodate orders placed after October 15th, we’ve secured a gluten-free kitchen space but will reach out to those customers individually to make pickup/drop off arrangements. We are currently evaluating the feasibility of continuing cake orders online (either delivery only or finding a drop point – if you know of any places that would allow that, let us know) and will keep you posted on what we decide.

We’ve loved being a part of this gluten-free bay area community and thank our customers for their amazing support over the last seven years.

With love,

Zest (Patrick, Charissa, and Cynthia)

  1. Oh no! Sorry to hear that 🙁 I’ve loved your bakery and have visited over the last 5 years!

    Have you checked out locations in San Mateo? There are a few warehouses available for rent that could work for pick up orders, etc!

  2. NOOOOOOO! This is the saddest news I’ve heard all year. I love Zest and your cakes especially so much. I hope you are able to continue on online, or find a new place to rent. This is truly sad. Thank you for your amazing baked goods.

  3. Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear this! Come down here to San Mateo. We have a big foodie community and lots of people who eat G free. There’s lots of warehouses and storefronts in the third Avenue area. Don’t give up–come our way. Your bakery is a Peninsula staple.

  4. I’m so sad about this! you have created lots of wonderful food and treats for our family over the years! You will be missed!

  5. So sad, that the only truly gluten free kitchen in the Peninsula is closing 😢

    How can it be, that all the devil’s kitchens can thrive serving straight poison and those who reach out to heal the community are denied a safe haven to provide our nourishing treats?

    Our family is so saddened and wishing it all works out for both Zest and our little community🙏

  6. Just was introduced to you and your wonderful products. So sorry to see you leave San Carlos! Good luck! If you land somewhere else nearby I hope I will hear about it.

  7. I am so sad…your bread is the best ever! Please let me know where and when I might be able to purchase bread and your wonderful goodies!!! I will miss you sooo much.

  8. I am so sad to hear this news. It was such a treat to come in to your bakery and pick some treats out from all the beautiful baked goods in your case. I will miss your almond cakes… and your donuts… and Oreos… and foccacia.
