Description: Melba is one of the few cafes in Auckland that could be called an institution. The original cafe in Vulcan Lane has changed little over the last decade. It's the kind of place both locals and tourists have always felt very comfortable visiting. Renowned for the best coffee, breakfast and brunch in the Auckland CBD. It's now time for you to try MELBA.

Great lil’ cafe that’s always super busy! It’s hidden at the very top of the Lane (after the pedestrian crossing), can’t miss it with the ppl pouring out to the outside tables. Greeted and served by the young Irish gal with smiles all around. As busy as they were she still looked after us just as well as she did the bigger tables.
Will be back for the breakfast menu as we only had enough time for coffee and muffins :)

When here twice for lunch whilst staying in Auckland and found Melba's to have good service and great food. The specials seem to change daily and the coffee was good.

Well, hidden from me anyway, obviously not to the locals. Found this via Siri after looking for a breakfast place in the nearby main street without success. You go up a lane off Queen St and cross over one little street. Excellent breakfast, coffee and staff, warm lively atmosphere.
