We took the set menu with many small delicious dishes: Could have come just for the waffle with goose lever mousse....! Great tasting of 6 wines to eventually choose 2 from the region, with nice stories on the wine producers. Friendly and straight forward service,...More

Simply love it here. Get in early is you don't want to wait. Sit at the bar and enjoy some of the best (and simplest) food around with great wine and friendly efficient service. A trip to Melbourne isn't complete for us until we've had...More

I'm not sure why anyone would go here, except perhaps to be seen. Sue, the food is good, but • the greeting was offhand: direct quote: 'have you been spoke to?' - no hello, no welcome. • we were handed to one waiter who handed...More

I visited the wine bar Cumulus Up above the Resto and had a few great glasses of Yarra. Fun Friday vibes, friendly staff, yummy small plates (don't miss signature dish duck waffle with prunes and fois gras!) and will absolutely come back.

Busy, even at 9:30am on a weekday. The breakfast menu seemed a bit limited, but I eventually decided to go with the shakshouka. I agree with the other reviewer below: basically just tinned tomatoes, some onion and two eggs. Not exactly challenging. Saved by the...More

This weekend I had the abominable shakshouka which cost about 18 dollars. It was pitiful shreds of red capsicum and two overcooked eggs (sunny side up) lost in a deluge of crushed tinned tomatoes. For a better experience I could have heated up a can...More

Great breakfast. Friendly staff. Food was so fresh and the servings were a great size. You may need to line up but it is so worth it. Very well priced as well

Cumulus Inc. was recommended by the concierge at the Sofitel. The restaurant was very busy for a Tuesday morning at 10 am but we only waited for about 5 min for a table which was fine. I ordered the full English breakfast which was very...More

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
