Nestled between the industrial Kensington and the cool Carlton lies North Melbourne, a blossoming suburb, known for its relaxed 'tude and boast-worthy cafes. And none are more talked about than Auction Rooms. This isn't just a cafe, this is the benchmark of a weekend brunch. Showing up a little dusty on a Sunday, you should expect a wait, but it's perfectly pleasant to people-watch with bleary...
