107 Errol St, North Melbourne
It’s not at all surprising that earlier this year Auction Rooms took out the prize for Melbourne’s Best Coffee by The Age’s “Coffee Army”. Housed in the old WB Ellis auction house, Auction Rooms is everything we’ve come to expect from the city’s most outstanding coffee roasters. And with a deliciously unique menu coupled with friendly staff and an edgy, urban interior, they seem to have it spot on. For food, you can pick from classics like eggs with any amount of sides, muesli and banana bread or opt for something a little bit more extraordinary like Welsh rarebit, tomato and chorizo stew or grilled black pudding. Architecturally, the large space is stunning with a glass feature wall that creates a cozy courtyard at the rear, use of recycled materials, pendant lamps and communal tables- Auction Rooms is truly one of a kind.
