Unfortunately we were lured into this restaurant for dinner as it was very quiet compared to the busier cafes and restaurants close by. That should have been our first clue but we were in a hurry. Wait staff were average and food was appalling. Risotto, made without Arborio rice, was watery and tasteless. When brought to the attention of the... More

We had breakfast at vibe twice on our trip. Both times we enjoyed the food atmosphere and service. Not too expensive. On the harbor in Salamanca better than a hotel buffet, cheaper and made to order. Made us feel like we were on holidays. Thanks Zum

The first morning in Hobart and went to Zum Cafe right across from the Harbour. I had a fantastic breakfast and my cappuccino was incredible! The restaurant was recommended and I am glad that I went. Now, I would like to recommend this restaurant to everyone going to Hobart.

We visited for cake and coffee after a meal. The freshly baked cheescake was still warm from the oven and was heavenly. But the coffee was nasty. A good cappucino should have the consistency of a creamy mousse. This had no consistency other than a thin layer of bubbled milk. There is just no excuse for poorly made coffee. Zum,... More

Zum can always be relied upon for good coffee and breakfast. And it is open when other breakfast venues are not (as I found out upon getting to the market at 7am with interstate visitors). Zum was open with the friendly service that is standard and prompt, the breakfasts were all very good and a second coffee was as good... More

Had a drink and a snack in this cool restaurant. Pity more people don't realise how good it is. Come on people. JJ looked after us really well.

As per the Trip advisor reviews this is a great place to have breakfast. Lovely big brekkie and great coffee. Quick service and happy to change our reservation time on the day as we arrived early.

The waiter took our order and our meals came about half hour later. once we were nearly finished our meal, then our coffee finally came although that was the first thing we ordered!! So overcrowded there was no way you could have... More

My friend and I booked ourselves in for breakfast and were un sure of what to expect. We were kindly greeted by a lovely staff member who seated us and gave us menus. Once we had ordered our coffee and meal, we chatted and talked about the lovely atmosphere and design of the business. Before we knew it, our coffees... More

A group of 6 of us had lunch there. The service was friendly. The food was okay; nothing to complain about, but was not a memorable meal either! I had a chicken wrap and it had a lot of lettuce, but not much chicken or flavour. Won't be in a hurry to go back there.
