It’s well worth a trip to Errol St, North Melbourne to visit Auction Rooms, a contemporary, industrial, airy coffee house cafe that was buzzing with the breakfast crowd on our recent visit.
Along with Proud Mary, De Clieu and Twenty & Six, Auction Rooms is serious about good coffee. They have a dedicated brew bar for filter coffees and a champion barista, Janelle Kingsley, who will pour you the perfect cup of Joe.
After perfect piccolos, for breakfast I ate the three grain porridge with rhubarb compote, pistachio praline and rose petals. Fragrant, warm and creamy this was a lovely way to start a winter morning. Al ordered the toasted sourdough with smokey bacon and poached egg. All beautiful ingredients treated with care.
Auction Rooms is the kind of place where you could easily meet friends for breakfast and end up staying for lunch!
