Cafe Scaletti is not in Elizabeth St, anymore. I believe there is another cafe there, but am not sure who operates it.

Love this little cafe, ideally located next to Queen Victoria Market, and offering an amazing breakfast with good quality coffee. Service is very good with the option of dining inside or out.

We were staying closeby and looking for somewhere for a spot of breakfast. Scalettis was selected. Breakfast menu was good and provided a wide selection with better prices and value for money than the self service buffet from the hotel we were staying in. The staff were friendly and helpful and even coped with The Mrs and her fussiness.

I spent the afternoon sitting in this cafe doing paperwork. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, replenishing my water without being asked and offering me regular cuppas, when I looked like I needed a break! They had no objection to me sitting there without spending much. Therefore my daughter and I went for breakfast the next morning. Wow! The... More

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
