We spent easter morning at Auction Rooms with some friends, and again it did not disappoint. These guys appear to be getting better and better at brewing amazing filter coffee, not to mention the espresso. I had the Ethiopian Michiti, made through the Syphon. The end result was a wonderfully... Read more
1 Syphon, 1 Mocha
Can't help to review again my visit here. I've had a brilliant Michiti Ethiopia (with some mix of kapsokisio) as short black and house blend (Candyman) as a latte. A different barista from my last visit, a well perfect balance of creamy milk taste with coffee. And I'm falling in love for Small Batch.
1 Latte, 1 Espresso
This very funky cafe/restaurant in North Melbourne does just about everything right.
The fit out is stylish without being overdone, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food was great.
The regular candy man blend is a bit sweet and doesn't have the punch of... Read more
Great smooth coffee. Not exceptional in flavour but very well made.
Better than average coffee, but not something I'd go out of the way for. The food's really the reason to come.
I had a latte thought it was good don't care much for latte art coffee should taste good not just look good
I couldn't get to Auction Rooms last time I was in Melbourne over 2 years ago.
They were a must this time around and I'm glad I made it.
They were my 4th coffee stop of the day.
By then with ll my hopping on and off of trams and a bit of walking, I needed a rest as well... Read more
1 Flat White
Crowned as Melbourne's best cafe by The Age, I expected more.
The atmosphere is pleasant but not special. As is service.
My piccolo latte was strong, dark, earthy and nutty. Not the sweeter, easily palatable style blend on offer at so many new cafes. It was well made... Read more
Auction Rooms does not disappoint!
A guy I used to make take-away coffees for 3 years ago is part owner of this place, so I was eager to get across town and see what he could do with the freedoms of his own cafe.
It's very cool and their house bean: Candyman at the moment... Read more
Very busy cafe, awesome coffee, awesome service, loved such sitting there and watch the brew bar in action!!
Another mega-cafe about a 20 minute walk north-east of the CBD.(10 minutes beyond the markets). A great experience, so plan to spend some time there.
1 Ristretto, 1 Piccolo
Came with high expectations that weren't met. Palatable cup.
1 Long Macchiato, 1 Skinny Flat White
Simple things done well are of the greatest pleasure! Superb coffee matched with great service and excellent food.
Sensational interior and brilliant coffee. Service varied - three waiters three attitudes - its worth the visit though
Love Auction Rooms.
Their house blend, Candyman, is consistently delicious and in my view, the best in Melbourne.
Their filter offerings are always interesting and their syphon brews are consistently superb.
Food is really interesting and whilst sometimes... Read more
Absolutely love this place - favourite cafe in Melbourne at the moment.
Coffee is fantastic, good alternate brews, and seriously take some beans home, I have some El Salvador Bourbon Amarillo at the moment and it's so good that I don't want to have a second coffee at work - nowhere... Read more
1 Espresso, 1 Flat White, 1 Piccolo
This is quite a cool place, but I feel like its trying to be too many things at once. I guess that's why it gets good reports in the media but it's a bit too much in my opinion.
Service was good and helpful, the manual brew bar is cool, and having a Robur for decaf is pretty committed!
I met up with a friend for breakfast here and was pleasantly surprised. The place is open and inviting, the atmosphere is not too busy and cool beats play over the sound system. Very chilled. Too my excitement they roast all their own stuff and you can pick and choose what you want. I love cafe's... Read more
The coffee is good and has always been consistent on the many visits I have made over quite a long period of time. Nice mellow house blends for lattes and great shots if you like short machiato or espresso.
The service is always friendly and the food is great.
It is always busy and... Read more
3 Short Macchiatos, 2 Espressos, 4 Lattes
The line is long, if you want a quick coffee, this isn't the place ad if you want to stick around for hours, this isn't the place either, but if you want nice service great coffee with a wait and not too long at the table then this place is great
Quality coffee, quality people, quality space wat more can you ask for. Keep up the good work auction rooms
Worth travelling to - deservedly in top 10 in Melbourne! Fantastic coffee, awesome food - can't fault. Always busy so may have to wait for table at peak times but well worth the wait!
Always been a big fan of this place, coffee is delicious and food is to die for. Food would rate as one of the best in Melbourne for a specialty coffee place. Great surrounds and the set up is charming given the size of the place. I always make the time to pop in and I am never disappointed.
1 Skinny Flat White, 1 Pour Over
Fairly great service (which can be tough to achieve in such a big venue).
Prices are high, but can be a special treat every now and then - certainly one of the best coffee options in this area.
Syphon coffee has... Read more
Love this place very much. I tried an espresso in the single origin and an iced filter from kenya. Both were absolutely wonderful. I will be returning ASAP!
