Breakfast was delicious. Good food , nicely presented. It’s a shame the grumpy young man serving us thought he was doing us a favour the whole time. Won’t go back.

Unfortunately for the autumn rooms, that particular building on Darby st appears to be cursed and is forever being turned into new failing businesses. These guys may have broken the curse however! The decor is completely redone, the coffee is excellent and comes in v60...More

At The Autumn Rooms we strive to keep it fresh, local, in season and super tasty. Food, coffee & tea is our thing with breakfast and lunch served all day. We are a relaxed, casual fine dining restaurant in the evening where you can expect to hear soft Jazz in the background and watch Darby Street walk past.
