This is a great place to have brunch in Melbourne. The food is French I think and the menu changes very frequently. Went here on a cold Melbourne winter with the family. The menu for vegetarian is limited but we have been told that there is usually more vegetarian dishes on the menu. Had a beautifully deep fried broccoli with... More

This is a nice spot for a quick coffee and some decent breakfast. We'd the bacon baps with gentleman's relish - so tasty! A great fuel filler for a walk around Melbourne while we were on a short layover.

Was in Melbourne for an exhibition and had some time to kill for lunch and after quickly messaging a Melbournite friend, she suggested Cumulus as a quick and easy meal, no booking needed. As I was eating solo I sat up at the bar and treated myself to a rose from their incredible wine menu. The team were very attentive... More

At best a weird experience of Melbourne cuisine with a big dose of Masterchef meets MKR. Try's too hard to be everything only the real houses wife's of Melbourne desire. Maybe a completely different experience for lunch and dinner but breakfast left us completely unsatisfied with envious eyes at the patrons of many a cafe on the way home.

We were staying a few doors down and picked here for breaky after reading good reviews. After 20mins wait we were seated at the drinks bar. Nice hot coffees and delish baked eggs. Varied menu with no smashed avo in sight!

Had a memorable lunch here the other day. The food was excellent and service in line. We had multiple courses. Started with tuna tartare/poke and the fresh oysters. Had a delicious green bean salad and finished with the lamb shoulder. All were excellent. Being a bit jet lagged, enjoyed their ice coffees as well. Would absolutely recommend this place.

Amazing food, spectacular service. Let the staff recommend dishes... but if the slow braised lamb shoulder for two is on the menu you must get it... so tasty, succulent and the meat fell off the bone. They know good wine pairings.

Went twice in a week for a drink around 9.30pm. The staff are really friendly and accommodating as always. We had some delicious food - flounder, zucchini, mushrooms and chestnuts and ricotta dumplings. Would highly recommend.

During a recent visit to Melbourne I had dinner with a Melbourne friend at Cumulus. I'd been there before, but she hadn't. We arrived at 1820 on Easter Saturday and had to wait for about 20 mins, but were offered drinks during our wait. We ended up at the counter, which I think is the best seating there if you're...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
