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.

Made a trip into the Central City to specifically check out Melba, glad we did. Delicious coffee, and we shared a GF slice of cake, which was really yummy. Friendly staff, it was nice to just take and seat and to be waited-on. Cozy and warm on a cold day. You can purchase wine as well.

We dropped into Melba Vulcan for coffee & it was excellent. However we were disappointed that we had already eaten as the food coming out of the kitchen for breakfast looked absolutely delicious.

As always the food and coffee is great. The mushrooms with hazelnuts on brioche was sensational. Great friendly service and good indoor and outdoor dining options

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 :)
