5 Lire
North Melbourne

Cinque Lire is a passion project of the Notarfrancesco family whose love for food and wine prompted them to lease a small shop front on Errol St in North Melbourne because it reminded them of the small villages of Southern Italy. The name represents the five family members involved and is a playful nod to the Italian slang for smack.

The cozy space has a balance of the old and the new – featuring reclaimed scaffolding to make the tables and chairs, and concrete panels and tiles that highlight the display cabinet that is full of Italian goodies.

The head barista, Leon, has been with them since they first opened their doors and started serving coffee to the hipsters, students, and Italian locals that have become their loyal clientele.
