“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Full of locals, all of whom are known by name to the owners, and whose orders are also well known. You'll see lots of people just walk in and have their order filled without asking for it. The owners are very cheeky, and can seem rude if you don't know them but it is a kind of well-received joke. They know guest's family members and what is going on in their personal lives. Simple and cheap menu. Highly recommended.

“A well loved café”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Hum is full of regulars from the manly community. It serves good value, no fuss food and is very efficient but there is nothing special. The place is full of 'hum' artwork and is pretty cute in terns of decor. It's not fancy and coffee is probably what it does best.

“Great food, great prices. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

My wife and I ate breakfast here two straight mornings on our holiday in Manly. The breakfast food was awesome - especially the bacon and egg sandwich! Also, it seemed like a true family-run operation with incredibly friendly staff. The prices were the most reasonable we saw for breakfast on our entire trip. You can't go wrong with Hum Cafe.

“Great coffee and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

The coffee is excellent and the staff are great - it has a laid back feel but my order was processed quickly. Also had an egg and bacon roll which was excellent - the eggs were a real egg colour.

“Fast and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

This must be the fastest service for takeaway coffee I have experienced. Excellent coffee served with a big happy smile. The Hum Cafe is a little out-of-the-way gem. Well worth tracking down.
