“Cool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015 NEW

The Auction Rooms highlights how North Melbourne has been transformed into a great inner city suburb. Close to city and parks and convenient we visited twice while staying in Melbourne. Atmospheric and i very good food - healthy, interesting, and original. We loved it.

“Blissful brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2015

My brunch at Auction Rooms was delightfully delicious!!! Not to mention they have a great atmosphere. I had a coffee blend from Burmundi as a latte and it was amazing. Spent two hours there and had a lovely brunch date.

It's expensive if you're on a travellers budget but a great place to check out if you feel like splurging.

Alternatively, if you don't care for the rustic atmosphere that Auction provides, the Counter serves the exact same coffees for cheaper literally across the street.

“Yum! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2015

Auction rooms serves deliciously great coffee (albeit only one size). Food was really tasty and served with a twist. Well worth a visit.

“Excellent food, coffee and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2015

I visited Auction Rooms for a mid week breakfast after reading reviews on trip advisor, and needless to say I was not disappointed. The food was delicious, the coffee was great and the service was very friendly. Although North Melbourne is a bit of a hike for us living in the Bayside area it was worth it and will visit again next time we are in out that way. A great spot for either a mid week or weekend brekkie.

“Tea so intensely yellow, it's easy to think you are in Provence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2015

Hip and hipster, mum and grandma, friend and lover, worker and entrepreneur - they all wash up here for a tasty lunch served with style by professional wait staff.

Excellent food choices - crisp, chunky, slivered, sweet cooked, slow cooked, dressed - it's all here.

Do have the teas. A delight to have on the table in their bursts of colour and fragrance.

Yes, of course there's alcohol. And very good coffee (but as there's so much good coffee in Melbourne, this is not a point of difference).

And if you can't resist a sweet treat, there is a small but tasty selection that the staff are happy to serve with two spoons.

Another place to eat so close to the CBD that you can walk thereby getting in your daily exercise, always a bonus.
