Buzzing from morning till night, Salamanca's Zum Café is somewhat of a meeting place for locals and visitors alike, offering approachable modern Australian fare in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Loved by diners for its satisfying breakfasts and great coffee by day, at night Zum is also gathering a cult following, serving a Spanish-inspired menu of tapas and larger meat dishes.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
With a slick internal makeover of one of the beautiful old sandstone warehouses lining Salamanca Place, Zum stands out as one of the few beacons of quality in the area’s general sea of mediocrity. Along with the nearby Retro Cafo, it’s the day’s heart-starter favourite for a diverse crowd of politicians, journos, office workers, business people and those more leisured souls who take their lattes al fresco and watch the city come to life. And then it continues to buzz with in-betweens, at lunch and well into the night.

As the only cafe on the Salamanca strip serviced by its own bakery, Zum’s breakfast croissants, Danishes, muffins, friandes, cakes and breads are among the best in town. The OJ is squeezed fresh to order and their Santa Vittoria lemon iced tea is the perfect summer quencher, while the affogato is not for the faint-hearted or diet-conscious and there’s an interesting, well-sourced and fairly priced wine list with 15 wines available by the glass. The lunch menu runs to house-made pastas, modern salads, focaccias and panini while things get more serious at dinner with chef Paul Brown’s excellent signature dishes of Thai-style corn and prawn fritters and Atlantic salmon and lime curry plus goodies like flash-fried squid, buttermilk chicken, seafood risotto and a retro eye fillet with Cafe de Paris butter.

Pity about the terrible service. I have only eaten at Zum once - the food was great. However, I have been back twice and both of those times I've got sick of waiting for service and gone elsewhere.review  04/12/2011
