One of the grew place in Melbourne I managed to get great coffee, very happy, but not much in the way of size options, I like my coffee huge.

Delicious cakes and good coffee. Problem is the atmosphere isn't particularly friendly. The very young staff are sweet but amateurish. The lady owner has a face that never shows a smile. Have to say that they are always busy as it's a tourist trap. Not so sure that I'll rush back as there are many other friendlier places to enjoy... More

We stopped here for a coffee and cake, and sat outside in the ally way. We sat at a small table for three as we had shopping bags although it was just two of us. The waiter asked for our order and I asked for a long Mac extra hot topped up with milk, yes I am a little fussy... More

Well we were just walking through the streets of Melbourne when we came across a cute little restaurant that had an amazing specials board. Both the pasta and minestrone soup were amazing. Lovely little place. Amazing food. Great atmosphere.

My visit was late on a weekday, about 6pm. On the last occasion when I ate at Caffe e Torte at that time of day I was disappointed by the service (amateurish) and embarrassed that my guests were served some odd and scrappy food concoctions. This fresh visit was better: service efficient, coffee good, and meals conventional (not outstanding, but... More

We enjoyed a weekend in the city and last opportunity for a bite to eat was breakfast on a Tuesday morning. Packed the bags at the hotel and took a short walk down to The Mall And found Caffe E Torta. Great spot and only wished we had found it for our other breakfasts. Good service and plenty of food....

Grumpy rude manager ( an old lady)! Bitter and cold flat white. I asked to make me another one and they put it in microwave!!! Complained to the manager and she just scared me off. Rude staff. Never go back.

Tried the Caffe e Torta for breakfast. Coffee was great (although could have been hotter). Poached eggs with avocado and smoked salmon was a delight. Good fresh juice. No bacon on the menu so don't expect any.

Stopped here many times over the years, great place to sit and watch the world pass by as the outside tables are actually lined up inside the walkway leading into the Royal Arcade from Little Collins Street. This area of Melbourne is known as the 'Lanes' and is a great place to explore. Snacks, cakes and coffee at this cafe... More
