Popped in for breakfast and had the bagel with smoked salmon which was excellent along with an apple juice. It was very busy but you place your order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table.

Great service. Could not get over the prices and the quality was apparent as there were many diners during our time there at a time that you would not expect it. Great food and well worth taking the time to experience what Umu has to offer!

We stopped in on a Sunday night after a long day of adventure around the peninsula with no expectations and not particularly hungry. We were blown away by the flavors of all five selections we ordered -- spicy pork meatballs and bacon vegetable soup to start, followed by the mussel platter, lamb rump entree and side of roasted veggies. WOW!!... More

Went here for breakfast, it was very very good. Friendly staff and nice surroundings. Inside was very clean and one look into the food cabinets made one hungry!!

Go to this place often and yes it was a long weekend but we had our food out well before our coffee which I had to go and chase up as they had forgotten us. Had Ham & Cheese croissants which were pretty hohum. I probably wouldn't have chosen them but had the meal brought for me. Coffee when it... More

Great service, lovely food, spacious with some decent kids options (very cute mini burgers). Asian slaw and hotpots were particularly good adult options and the hotpots very reasonably priced. Great coffee too. No hesitation in recommending.

This was our second visit. We had good memories of our last visit last Summer. Somewhat disappointed this time. Coffee still good but menu didn't excite us, and our choices of Angus beef burger and Pork roll were average.

Ok I won't say it is very good but it isn't average either. So I need an good/Ok option. Friendly staff they had coloring pages and pens for the kids. I had the angus burger which was good. My husband had the roasted vegetable salad and although very pleasant to eat it was an odd combination. It should have said... More

Hot and strong coffee is a plus in any cafe. This place always has consistently good counter food if you are wanting a quick lunch.
