Cumulus Inc, Melbourne

As I do posts about our Melbourne trip, I only realised how many of the places we had gone to were the ones people rave about. Thanks to Zomato, we had made it quite a few on the list. And this next post is about Cumulus Inc, thanks to my cousin and Zomato again 🙂

Located close to the hotel we were staying at, we hoped by going there on week day at 9 would be not so packed. I imagine, the office workers would have been busy at work, right? And of course, we were wrong! It was packed!!!And not just the take away lines, the whole place is packed with people having breakfast. And that raises the question in our mind: so, what time do these people actually start working? ( ⚆ _ ⚆ )


Thankfully it was not a long wait for seating on long sharing bench, which we did not mind at all. We mostly knew already what to order, so did not spend long browsing on the menu this time. It took a while for our order to come, but again thankfully for the seating, we can see one of the chef prepared breakfast orders. That was awesome, we enjoyed seeing her work, how fast and smooth she did one after one after one order.

Anyway, I ordered their housemade crumpets while hubby got their full English breakfast. Don’t they look lovely?

The housemade crumpets were lovely, golden crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. It pairs deliciously with that ricotta and honey. It is a perfect dish to me and hubby agreed as well. Hubby said his full breakfast was also yummy – it is not overly greasy but tasty. And the blood sausage was actually good, he says.


After breakfast, we walked around and found ourselves needed another caffeine kick – so we went to League of Honest Coffee. We actually went to this place last year but it was closed, so it”s great to see it open and busy this time. My understanding is they also uses coffee bean from Padre, the Seasonal Blend. And of course, it is so good!!! I can confidently say that my favourite coffee is from Padre – loving both their Seasonal and Daddy’s Girl (DG) Espresso Blend. The seasonal blend is more of toffee notes, rich and full bodied. The DG blend is more mild in acidity and creamy. DG is the one used in Hardware Societe, which I am also a big fan of their coffees.

The bustle and bustle during morning tea (or coffee) break
It is truly bean the best of times!
