Alta offers a modern urban Australian, a La Carte Café Menu. We understand our customers! We change our specials daily focussing on the fresh local sourced ingredients.

Alta Café is a welcome oasis from the hustle and bustle of our busy city. Located on 270 Adelaide Street, it is in easy walking distance from Central train station, which makes it the perfect destination for a coffee and breakfast on your way to work, a place to catch up with friends over lunch or a drink, or somewhere to stop for a wine on your way home on a Friday night.
