If you are a foodie, do yourself a favor and have dinner here. The menu is fun and original with lots of good choices. Our server was terrific and turned us on to lots of good things to try - including several wonderful gins! A friend suggested we eat here, insisting it is one of his favorite restaurants, and we...

Cumulus is superb -- so popular you may have to queue for breakfast, but well worth the wait. Coffee magnificent, service fast and friendly, dishes quite divine.

This restaurant was recommended to us by Jessica head of guest relations at th Grand Hyatt where we were staying, so we strolled in for lunch. A great experience from the moment we walked in. Friendly attentive staff who seated us at the bar overlooking the kitchen, so we got to watch this slick team prepare our food right before... More

We dined for breakfast and it was UNREAL. The food was delicious and the service was super friendly. Had eaten here for dinner previously and loved it. Breakfast lived up to the expectation. Loved it lots and will certainly be back.

We had a great meal here. We sat at the bar watching the chefs/kitchen. The food is amazing. The service was spectacular. We had the salmon, some great mixes veggies and potatoes. We had the lemon infused madaline cookies for dessert. A definite go to when visiting Melbourne

An ok experience, but no more. Not very friendly staff sadly, and the food is definitely outperformed by similar hip breakie places in CBD. The space where you eat is very nice though, and it is not as tight between the tables as similar places can be.

Try to move to Cumulus up (as good as Inc. downstairs is). And if you like it - like we do - try get a seat at the chefs tablebar. Dedication and quality of kitchen staff ensures a delightful evening with plenty of pleasant taste surprises. Cumulus in itself is worth a visit to Melbourne.

We were staying at the Windsor hotel just round the corner and thought we would give this place a try and we were not disappointed. Despite being very busy the restaurant accommodation us near the bar where we watched the food being prepared by the young and dynamic staff. The food was innovative, full of flavor and we'll presented. Service... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
