Cumulus Inc serves up gorgeously velvety coffees and one of the best breakfast offerings in Melbourne CBD.

The interior is clean and bright; a relaxed modern arena that’s dressed up as an eating house and bar. One step in and you know you’re onto a winner.

The Lyonnaise sausage is a delightful sight – a scrumptious dollop of haricot beans accompanied by gooey egg and a thick slab of grilled sausage.


Bircher museli, grated granny smith apple and almonds ($10)


Bircher museli, grated granny smith apple and almonds ($10)

The museli is refreshingly healthy, with a almonds dotted throughout and bright pink slices on top. It’s not particularly mind-blowing, but a tasty rendition at that.


Long black ($3.80)

The coffee is delectably smooth and well-brewed, though surprisingly not as good as the coffee sampled at Hammer and Tong.


Sencha ($3.50)

The sencha is a good lot of loose leaf tea – piping hot and aromatic.

I had my eye on one of those madeleines, though rather unfortunately forgot to order one on my way out. Nevertheless, Cumulus serves up addictive, flavoursome food in a sun-filled space that’s often fiercely crowded day in, day out. I can’t wait to return for lunch and dinner; it’ll be worth every penny indeed.
