Why oh why do restaurants insist on lighting so low it’s impossible to read the menu OR make out the food when it arrives? I was left to use my iPhone flashlight, fine for reading the menu but so clumsy when trying to eat. Turn...More

The chef's selection was the easiest choice and did not disappoint. The restaurant had a fabulous ambiance, was warm and cosy on a rainy Melbourne night but the highlight of this restaurant is the amazing staff and service they offer.

Great breakfast at Cumulus Inc. on the last day of our holiday - which is saying something, as we were well and truly done with eating and drinking by that stage. Mom and I both had the buckwheat waffles with trout, and thought it was...More

We’d read good reviews about this place but the reality did not meet our expectations. The coffee was lukewarm and the eggs Florentine lacked flavor and the cumulus breakfast lacked love. Unfortunately we won’t be returning despite the great atmosphere

Brunch Shakshouka was very yummy. Not chilli hot but so full of flavour. I'm salivating writing about it. The mocha was very interesting, must be made with Dutch cocoa. You could feel the texture, it was very nice. Service was good, food was pretty quick...More

Hadn’t been to Cumulus Inc. in ages, but a friend was visiting town and I wanted to show them one of Melbourne finest/ funnest places. I had a Campari and fresh grapefruit juice which was suggested by our wait staff - delicious! Food is always...More

We’ve been to Cumulus a number of times and as usual, at breakfast, the place is a bit of a scrum. The service was friendly if a little slow - not at all surprising given the crowd. But the disappointment was really with the food...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
