This quaint North Melbourne café offers a small window into the passion, simplicity and mouth-watering tastes of Italian cuisine. 5 Lire celebrates both authenticity and a contemporary flair that is directly influenced by Melbourne’s changing palette.


5 Lire (pronounced Cinque Lire) is a trendy, industrial-chic space, serving all-day breakfast and regional Italian cuisine. Owner and food lover Laura Notarfrancesco was inspired by a three month stint travelling around Southern Italy, learning the intricacies of their cuisine & immediately knew she had to bring this passion for food and sharing among the community back to Melbourne.

Here you’ll find both traditional & contemporary cafe fare enhanced with a little Italian flair. The ricotta hotcakes with nutella & Persian fairy floss are a must but each dish here is equally delectable (and Instagram-worthy)!
