Auction Rooms

takes advantage of its space and high ceiling, attracting me with their large open area and great exposure to the sunshine. It has outbeat many of its neighbouring competitors on Queensberry Street because of the interior. As for the goodies for the tummy, their coffees were made by baristas who knew what they were doing (I’m not always so critical!) >> they even sell their coffee blend to customers. If you check their menu out, there are quite a lot of exotic beverages!

Auction Rooms (AR) – 最簡單理解方式就是’拍賣房’, 現在早已不是本行 – 而是以咖啡屋的身份在經營. AR在貓本貌似非常受歡迎,咖啡口味很正 – 我好幾位朋友是他們的常客. 可惜我離North Melbourne實在太遠了, 所以我與AR也就只有這一面之交.

看著有些歲月痕跡的AR建築, 明顯是裝修后特意留下復古感. 兩面牆是大塊玻璃拼成, 暖暖的太陽照進餐廳非常享受. 另外兩面牆明顯可見是磚頭砌成, 整體使咖啡屋感覺現代但很穩重. 我很喜歡AR高高的屋頂, 上面還掛著塑料管子製作的吊燈, 感覺很純樸. 我很好奇AR的歷史與曾經的容貌可最後卻也沒有問店員.

雖然知道他們的咖啡很好喝可我卻點了自己喜歡的Chai Tea Latte, 我相信咖啡只有自己親口品嚐才能決定是否喜愛, 不用我多說. 那份Chai Tea Latte做得很到位, 是茶葉泡的不是沖劑.

中飯點了AR當天的三明治 – 豬肉三明治. 量很大, 我一個人其實一半就夠了可最後還是硬撐吃掉了… 當天晚飯時間都沒餓. 如果說口味的話我覺得一般般, 肉太多, 又是豬肉塊又是火腿還有cheese. 可能也是吃撐了的原因 – 暴飲暴食可不是好習慣哦~ 下次不敢了, 一定刻意留位置吃甜點.

Things Ordered:

  • Soy Chai Tea $4.00 +50c
  • Latte $4.00
  • Sandwich of the day $17.00
Sandwich of the Day: Super meaty sandwich with pork, ham and cheese. Great portion for a man, way too much for a lady like me =P 豬肉三明治 - 量很大, 我一個人其實一半就夠了
