It shouldn't be difficult to get eggs, toast and bacon right. This is stuff people can easily make in their house to a decent standard. I felt disappointed and I wasted my money. My partner ordered pancakes and they were quite rubbery. I don't recommend.

This place used to be great. The staff and the menu were slick but sadly not any more. Thick tough rubbery pancakes. Nowhere near good enough. Ordinary toast,ordinary eggs Benedict, ordinary everything ... really Zum? The best you can do?

Zum is in a great space in Salamanca. It has a relaxed feel and plenty of seating. The menu for breakfast had loads of options for the healthy to the hungover.

While needing to fuel up for the day ahead of shopping at the Salamanca Market, I came upon Zum Cafe for breakfast and had the french toast. It was so filling and tasted great. Was a good serving size.

We had breakfast here a couple of times as we had to come back for more Potato Rosti.. So delicious!! Coffee was great and the kids could have hot chips for breakfast (something for everyone)!! Also loved the location, great to sit outside and watch people at the Salamanca Markets and inside, lovely warm atmosphere. I'm plotting my homemade version... More

I would have given 4 stars, but unfortunately their day old or more, stale carrot cake let the experience down. But the coffee was really good!

We went hear for breakfast before hitting Salamanca markets. They were understandably very busy, the owner/manager was locked and very calm and collected despite all the multitasking, the waitresses were looking quite flustered from the mass amounts of customers, but the busyness didn't effect the food, it was delicious! We left feeling full and satisfied.

Thank Emily S
