Although it was a celebration for all of the staff’s hard work for the year, it was also a farewell party for our much loved staff member, Madison Lierich. We are going to miss you very much Maddie and we wish you all the best with your new job.

Zest + Thyme is located near the Cape Willoughby lighthouse. Specializing in  contemporary and light home-style meals with a twist, they have a wide variety of main courses to choose from, as well as cakes, snacks and desserts.



Their menu changes from day to day, featuring different cakes, curries and desserts. Vegetarian and vegan options are available, but not forgetting those with an intolerance to gluten, they also offer gluten free options for their food.


Zesty chicken curry, one of many delicious choices on the menu

The atmosphere of the café is enhanced by the great sea views, so you can relax and unwind after a busy day of adventuring. During cooler months, migrating southern right whales and their calves can  be seen if you’re lucky. Local kangaroos also frequently appear close to the deck, creating an amazing dining experience.


beautiful views from the deck create an amazing atmosphere

We would also like to say a special thanks to Moss, Liz, Vanessa and Brett, who served us our delicious meals and helped to make it a really fun night!
