We went here twice on our holiday to Melbourne because the food and service here are excellent and it happens to be one of the best value breakfasts around town. You can easily pay $25 at your hotel and get a rubbish meal or just the standard stuff. Not here - it's great!

The Cuulus breakfast (boiled egg,toast,preserves,yogurt,OJ,& coffee or tea) is great but in Melbourne office workers take the tables early and don't like to go back to the office!
The room is still stark and noisey.
High stress boiler room of a restaurant. Shame because the food and service are good.
I don't expect to try it a third time.

As your breakfast menu quite clearly states "we cannot make any variations to the menu" you know that you are off to a welcoming start, and you are clearly not welcomed here. Yes the dining area is fantastic and the staff really work hard, but deep down it feels a bit clinical and unfriendly almost as if it is give us your money, eat up and get gone

Cumulus is no longer new and hip but continues to evolve its menu. Their no reservations policy annoy a lot people but I think unless you are in a large group it isn't a real issue. There are plenty of other options close by regardless. The foie gras parfait is to die for. The service occasionally lets this place down, otherwise it is brilliant.

Went to breakfast here - spur of the moment, walking past decision. Glad i ventured in. Had a simple breakfast watching the chefs do their thing. Service was prompt, friendly and professional.

Really enjoyed the freshness of the flavours and they make an excellent coffee.

Highly recommended for a good hearty breakfast.
