Melbourne is well-known for its vibrant cafe culture and there are plenty of cafes to choose from, if not too many for visitors like us. Broadsheet is a great website that makes planning so much easier, as they provide their favourite picks on where to eat and what to see. I do recommend giving it a browse if you plan on going to Melbourne.
The presence of so much braised beans gives us a bit of a shock as we're not use to eating so many beans in one sitting. It's cooked through with chunks of pork hock and this is actually very tasty. Unfortunately the beans cover the slice of toast which makes it go soft and soggy. We find ourselves wanting more toast to scoop up the sauce.
The grilled Lyonnaise sausage is a good accompaniment to the beans. It's a bit on the salty side but works well with the other ingredients.
The 'Cumulus Inc Breakfast ($16.00)' includes a boiled egg, a pile of toast, preserves, yoghurt, organic juice and a choice of coffee or tea. Perfect for those who prefer a lighter and more traditional kind of breakfast.
If you're ultra thirsty, a cold and a hot drink forms part of the deal. We opt for the 'Organic Orange Juice' and a 'Jasmine Tea'.
Cumulus Inc is a decent eatery for a delicious breakfast but it didn't wow me or bowl me over. I found the food here to be standard and the choices limited. I, however, enjoyed the atmosphere and that's probably what would bring me back.
