When Jentopia suggested we do Saturday morning breakfast at The Auction Rooms Cafe in Errol Street North Melbourne, I squealed with delight. Twitter told me the first scene in episode one of the latest season of Rush was filmed there. It’s one of my favourite ever moments of Rush. (The scene is at the 1:34 mark of the video.)
|I’d loved to have captured the lead lighting clearer, but I was worried I was taking too many photos.|

My hot chocolate was great too – very chocolatey and no milk taste, though could have been hotter.
I couldn’t resist another breakfast – so I got the Counter Bid – a vegetarian breaky with a side of smoked bacon. The Counter Bid contained the delicious poached eggs, buttery garlic mushrooms, roquette, pesto all served on a rosemary-parmesan baked polenta cake. This polenta was full of flavour, unlike so many bland and gluggy polenta dishes I’ve tried/cooked. Another awesome dish.
I think I’ve found my new favourite breakfast cafe. Can’t wait to head back there soon.
