Loved this place - had breakfast here while the Salamanca Market was on and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the menu. I had the potato Rosti (smokes salmon, spinach and poached egg with hollandaise on the rosti), a fantastic fresh orange juice and great coffee. My wife equally enjoyed her raspberry pancake with cream.

Had a weekend breakfast and unfortunately it wasn't up to its normal standard. Had the french toast which was dry and had no flavour and reluctantly we sent that one back. Don't like doing that but I'm not paying for food that's not done as it should be. I had scrambled eggs and bacon and again the eggs and the... More

Great place for a break while visiting the Salamanca Market. Good coffee and any tea you could request. Great service. Mix up with our order but the staff did not hesitate to correct it and adjust our bill.

Quite a nice venue. Good indoor and front of street dining seating. Nice ambience and dining options. Additional rear courtyard with rock retaining wall. A favourite choice of mine for breakfast when on business. For the hard of hearing, the ambient music and reflective surfaces create a decent din that could make hearing a bit difficult. If I could influence... More

Stopped in here for a coffee and was not dissapointed. Coffee was smooth and delicious just like it should be. Will defiantly be returning.

The first time I went to Zum there was next to no quality of service in a near empty cafe but I returned for the food which was reasonably priced for very large serves. The second experience was much better but once again on the third visit was met with poor service. Due to inconsistency I find it hard to... More

We had breakfast here two mornings in a row. We had the croissants which were served on a wooden board with cheddar cheese, ham, and a side of delicious raspberry jam. We also ordered the fries which were nice and crispy. They served good coffee and fresh orange juice. On our second visit we ordered the mushroom hotpot served with... More

We kept returning to Zum for coffee and breakfast. Great menu selection, smiling and prompt service and the chef really knows what he's doing. Busy little place on the weekend but enjoy a relaxing breakfast in a week day if you can. Located on the Salamanca waterfront strip so handy too.
