You’d be hard-pressed to find a more hip Melbourne go-to than Cumulus Inc. It’s got you covered from dawn to dusk, for breakfast meetings, power lunches, Tinder dates, a post-show tipple and solo dining; in fact any occasion you can throw at it.
Start the day with house-made crumpets soaked in rooftop honey, while lunch could be a delightful calamari and radish salad powered by a tangy nduja dressing.
Come evening, perch at the kitchen bar for a bird’s eye view of your dinner, be it a succulent half-chook with fried Jerusalem artichokes or O’connor sirloin.
Staff are well versed in the ever-changing menu, so feel free to hand over the ordering reins. ■ Must-eat dish Calamari and radish salad ■ Cuisine Contemporary ■ Price $$ ■ Chefs Andrew Mcconnell & Sam Cheetham ■ Bookings Groups only ■ Open All-day dining daily ■ Instagram @cumulusinc
