I ate breakfast here twice while visiting Melbourne - it's a sharp, efficient operation with a reasonably small menu but executed well. Excellent service, good coffee. I had two different experiences food-wise. I agree with the previous reviewer that the baked eggs are pretty average,...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

I can not fault anything about Cumulus Inc. The service is attentive and informative (particularly as I require gluten free food) and the food is to die for. We had a 5 course meal and absolutely everything was delectable (try the caramelised figs!). The wine...More

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
