There are always huge advantages when parents come over for a visit. The main thing is you take them to yummy places you have been wanting to revisit since day dot.
Back in the good old days I love going to Cumulus Inc for breakfast. Their 65/65 eggs are legendary and spawned a number of copycats around Melbourne. Revisiting them this time, it seemed like they have moved on from 65/65 eggs, as it was not offered on the menu. Sadness.
P.Mummy decided on the baked eggs which has a beautiful Middle Eatern flavour $16. This dish is super filling and I couldn’t believe it when P. Mummy almost had the whole plate to herself.
P.Diddy chose the smoked ocean trout with dill and pickled cucumber $17. A direct contrast to P.Mummy’s dish this is extremely light and refreshing.
My choice was the grilled bratwurst sausage w shaved cabbage and soft boiled egg $18. I was slightly disappointed when the dish came out as I was expected the dish to be hot and not room temperature. It tasted ok, but I would much rather trek to Hardware Societe for brekkie than Cumulus Inc next time.
What redeemed this breakfast was thankfully, the lemon curd madeleines! THIS freshly baked, beautiful, fragrant, lemon curd oozing little cake remained my favorite over the years and a must have every time I visit Cumulus. 7.5/10
