The brunch selection at Cumulus was interesting including a Turkish (?) tomato/cheese sauce which was rather filling. The warm magdaleines with lemon curd filling tasted very good but i didn't have a chance to try the crumpets as kitchen closed at 11:30 in preparation for lunch !

I'd been to Cumulus for dinner previously but not for breakfast, so headed down with a colleague on a recent business trip. We have a very nice breakfast, the restaurant was busy but the wait wasn't long, I enjoyed being able to have a bacon roll with half a mango as a side, made for a great breakfast. Coffee and...

So, I went back to try out their breakfast! Very busy (as you would expect), and had to wait about 5 min, but still great service. Coffees offered. Good menu with interesting choices, well cooked and great coffee. Well worth a visit! Keep up the good work.

Today we went to the city and had lunch at this very pleasant place. Try to come in time because I have the impression that it will be always crowded. We shared a plate with charcuterie and a plate with burrata ( mozarella ). The bread was very nice too ! We had a high seat in front of the... More

Natural oysters unadorned,selection of olives unremarkable, pigs head croquettes too salty charcuterie simply sliced salami and prosciutto, ice berg lettuce leaf with a bit of chopped dill, grapefruit and mayo.... Uninspiring followed by lamb shoulder ( admittedly, perfectly cooked but lacking flavour) we had to shred... More

My friend ( a traveller) had heard and wanted to have the experience of dining at Cumulus Inc on a early friday evening at about 730pm. We asked politely if there is any chance of getting a seat as a walk in. At first the Maitre De said it was possible but it was approx 45 min waiting period. We... More

A last minute decision to try Cumulus Inc on a Saturday night turned out to be the right choice. They will only accept bookings for groups of 7 or more. However Cumulus Up (up the stairs) accepts bookings for smaller numbers. Tried my luck to get in when reservations were full. Pleasantly surprised when we walked in at 8pm and... More

The chefs selection menu is always a plus and I loved that cumulus inc offered this, we dined as a group of 5 and its to hard to decide on food so I loved that we could do the selection, the only advice I would offer on his is when it came to the main course of the selection they... More

I went to Cumulus Inc for Sunday lunch recently. The waitress was very helpful explaining the menu, but I don't think I ordered as well as I could have, mainly because I didn't realise the size of the servings. The complimentary bread they provide was nearly a course in itself, and so good that it was hard to stop grazing.... More

During a girls trip to Melbourne and after a long day of shopping we stumbled upon this place and headed upstairs to the wine bar seeking out a cold glass of champagne before we moved on to find dinner. However, they never really got rid of us! The interior is nice and modern, but still comfortable, and the wait stuff... More
