simple breakfast at Cumulus Inc. was all we needed to get energised
for a long day trip along the Great Ocean Road.
We got there bright and early, and there were plenty of empty seats for us. We had a look at the breakfast menu the night before in order to minimise the time spent on decision making due to our tight schedule for that day. For me, it was a simple Bircher muesli, grated granny smith apple and almonds ($10) and the other travel bunnie ordered the Grilled Lyonnaise sausage, smoked hock, braised beans & 65/65 egg ($16).
Although the bircher muesli was delicious, I somehow regretted ordering a healthy breakfast choice when I saw the other travel bunnie's warm and hearty breakfast. The egg was cooked at 65 degrees for 65 minutes and when he cut it open, gooey egg yolk slowly covered his baked beans. Yum. The other travel bunnie commented that the meal reminded him of a breakfast he used to have when he was little, and to me food that brings back your childhood memories is definitely worth having.
Before we finished our breakfast at Cumulus Inc, a fantastic eatery with minimalistic décor, we tried their Madeleine filled with lemon curd ($2.5). The Madeleine takes 15 minutes to make, so we ordered them before we started. When they were brought out, they were still warm. Although they weren't exactly amazing, the sweet filling was the perfect end to breakfast and went down nicely with my pot of earl grey.
Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $40.50
