Located in Salamanca Place, Zum is close to the many sights Hobart has to offer, including its famous Saturday market. The food is really tasty but the menu is limited. A little more choice would go a long way toward making this a great cafe. They make a good coffee!

A pleasant spot for breakfast outside on a sunny day before taking in the Salamanca market on a Saturday. The pancakes with berries are a stand out.

I have been a huge fan of Zum in the past but the last two times I've been there I was told they were doing kitchen renovations and as a result they had a limited menu.. when we looked at the menu it was basically just toasted sandwiches and a few cakes. I ordered a toastie and my friend asked... More

We ordered lunch and waited over 40 minutes for it to finally arrive The waitress who initially served us had a 'Couldn't care less' attitude and seemed only interested in taking a drinks order as we had to ask for the food menu. I ended up having to ask where our meals were and was told there was a wait... More

Rude staffs, burnt coffee and poorly cooked breakfast. A total waste of time. This place ruined my morning. Please avoid.

We went in to get breakfast and got told there was no breakfast as there was no chef. The staff couldn't have cared less. We have now found a place that was happy to feed us and has got friendly staff.

staff seem disinterested, bothered by your presence. Food for breakfast just standard, edible. Good coffee. Don't waste your money and time. There are much better cafes in the same area.

My husband and I each ordered breakfast -- ham and cheese croissant for me and two eggs fried over easy on toast for him. My croissant was fine, if totally flattened/squashed when I might have expected something rounder rather than flat, but my husband's eggs were extremely greasy and the yolks totally hard inside. When we queried it, the manager... More

We dropped in for breakfast, the menu was limited and when we made our selection, they couldn't offer one choice because the kitchen weren't ready. They got an order wrong, the food was cold and the pancakes were way under cooked. No offer of a discount, no split billing. Staff were mediocre at best. A real disappointment and waste of... More
