To some folk, being a barista in Melbourne is more important than being a doctor, and locals choose who fixes them their morning cup of joe very strategically. Thus, when an establishment has a loyal following, you know it’s going to be good. Saporito Cafe Bar & Grill has garnered a loyal following of black gold aficionados for its fantastic coffee blend, but you’d be remiss to not stay and sample some of the tasty food on offer for breakfast or lunch. This Kavanaugh Street cafe is a must-visit destination for Italian inspired cuisine in the very heart of Southbank.

1st visit, every order correct and served whole table, staff super helpful and polite. Great cafe, cannot fault.
Great service, great food, anticipated my needs and even exceeded them. Lino is a great host and Leo, the best Barista in Melbourne. He knows how to make a real cappuccino - so to all you try-hard barista's... it is not a cafe latte in a cup with a sprinkle of chocolate! Go to Saporito's and get the real cappuccino!
At one of the most sought after locations in Melbourne, Saporito Cafe Bar & Grill is walking distance from the majority of Melbourne’s entertainment attractions and is the perfect spot to take a break from it all and relax over quality Italian-inspired food and coffee. We recommend heading here for the breakfast bruschetta filled with fresh avocado, sauteed mushrooms and perfectly poached eggs, or perhaps a little later in the day to treat yourself with the organic superfood salad that will leave you feeling refreshed, keen and ready to explore the rest of Southbank.
Indulge in Saporito’s mouthwatering dukkah crusted lamb cutlets or one of their traditional stone cooked gourmet pizzas. During the summer Saporito is close enough to the beautiful Botanic Gardens to be able to squeeze in a pre or post-lunch walk. Saporito takes pride in delivering high quality and delicious Italian-style food that will have you salivating. Situated on Kavanaugh Street, Saporito Cafe Bar & Grill will leave you understanding why Melbourne is the food capital of Australia and why this Southbank gem has got locals loving it.
