Great upscale cafe with a relaxed atmosphere

We were here for tea and sourdough fruit bread, which came with lots of butter and honey. One can clearly sit a long time talk, read a newspaper, or fiddle with one's cell phone. One can get a 2nd pot of hot water at no extra charge (and use one's tea bag to make more tea). There are restrooms in... read more

Called in for a late lunch on a Sunday, nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff, selected the eye fillet burger with some slight changes to what the menu stated, was never an issue and tasted great, will be back many times

This place has been highly recommended in a traveller's magazine so I finally make it here. As suggested, I straight went for the scramble eggs & it is one of the best - fluffy, light yet tasty enough. Coffee is good with ample seating inside.

Zum is a great breakfast location. Menu is quiet vast and seems to be set up so you can just pick and choose what you want to eat.

Trying to find a table on the Monday of a long weekend wasn't easy when we ventured down to Salamanca for a highly anticipated brunch. Apart from many establishments not even opening on the day, the ones that were were just about pushing [people back out the door. Finally managed to a secure a table at Zum, albeit outside with...

great for a delicious coffee, or always reliable for a tasty breakfast or lunch. The staff are always pleasant, and on a fine day its great to sit outside and watch the world go by in Salamanca place

Breakfast at 8.30am - very civilized. Seven friends had breakfast before exploring the Salamanca Markets. Good choice of dishes and wait staff were happy to add extras. Poached eggs did not disappoint - perfectly cooked (with runny yokes). Coffee was good too. Happy with out choice. Enjoy.

We were leaving Hobart on Sunday but wanted to have a quick bite and were enjoying the neighborhood and happened across this spot. We got a table, and literally within five minutes, there were people waiting for seats. I had a breakfast burrito, which was piping hot and delicious. My husband had the eggs Benedict, which he devoured. YUM!

The staff are really very obliging even when the place is packed. The mushroom and spinach omelette was not on the menu but when I spotted another diner having it the staff were more than happy to put in an order for me - and it absolutely wonderful with superb fresh ingredients - well done!.
