Auction Rooms

Summer isn't quite gone yet! A beautiful Melbourne day saw the front tables at Auction Rooms bathed in sunlight, and we were lucky enough to get one for our party of four. We arrived on a Sunday for 9.30am, and very soon after that there was quite a large queue.

Delightful Auction Rooms ambiance

It's a gorgeous space with a wide ceiling, exposed beams and unique fittings.

The staff are ALL good-looking, channeling an artsy-but-not-too-cool-hipster vibe. It's a comfortable atmosphere, and we were looked after with our orders and extra requests.


Both the food and coffee took quite a while to arrive, which could be just the busyness factor of Sunday at a cafe. While it wasn't too annoying (we had great company!) we did notice it.

CoffeeBean and I went with the 'Opening Bid' (cute name) – poached eggs on sourdough, then you can add options like avocado and tomato relish in my case, and heirloom tomato salad and potato quinoa rosti for CoffeeBean.

LaBelle went with the delicious-looking poached eggs on top of a tomato, capsicum and chickpea bake, with flatbread.

LB opted for the impressive- looking salmon stack, with poached eggs and hollandaise.

All up, a nice space with good food.

"Not beatnik but not quite commercial"!!!
