I've been having quite a few work related meetings lately that all seem to take place at one of my favourite eateries in the city, Cumulus Inc. If you haven't been to Cumulus before, its the hugely successful restaurant from Andrew McConnell who is also at the helm of other Melbourne institutions such as The Builders Arm Hotel, Cutler & Co, Golden Fields and the current talk of the town, Supernormal Canteen. Working smack bang in the middle of the CBD close to Town Hall, there really isn't too many places of this ilk close by. Yes you have the newly opened Bowery To Williamsburg and Mister Close in the Target Centre, but none of these have the sophistication or credibility that Cumulus has. The menu is short and sweet and features the usual breakfast regulars such as eggs any way on sourdough, house made Madeline's with lemon curd and my current favourite house made crumpets with whipped ricotta and rooftop honey. If you haven't made it there yet and eager to breakfast in the city during the work week, make your way to Cumulus, I think you might like it.
