Had breakfast here and tried the coffee and crumpets. The service was friendly, the coffee was alright but not great. The crumpets looked good but didn't taste great.

Found the food very pricey and really did not enjoy all of our chosen dishes My overseas foody friends loved the place and the food. Choice is varied and wine list good. Just prefer other restaurants for the same pricing and food.

Went here during the Formula 1 (pre-race). Was provided coffee outside whilst waiting for a table. Food and coffee were great and the service was brilliant. Our server realised we were in a hurry to get to the track so he put a rush on our order and even asked if we wanted to pay before we finished so we... More

Great food, fast and friendly. Foie gras parfait was a hit. Only complaint was our bottle of champagne was not cold. Have been many times and never disappoints.

Had breakfast here. Full English breakfast and poached egg/toast/preserves/yogurt. Also had a Madeline with lemon curd and a canele; the latter was like a mini-Bundt cake with a "caramelized" crust and an inside like a cross between a cake and a custard. Absolutely delicious. Sat by the open kitchen; it was neat to watch the organized workings of the chefs.... More

A first we had difficulty finding this restaurant but when we did we were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is quite dark and very casual and the food is all about sharing and really delicious. There is an excellent choice of wines and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We had a great evening.

We had some good reports about Cumulus from friends so decided to drop by while in Melbourne for the Australian Open Tennis. First time it was too busy, second time we got in and were seated at the bar for brunch. The place was packed, it had a good atmosphere and the bar was similar to that you might experience... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood 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.
