This arcade has a high ceiling and beautifully decorated tiled floor. My friend and I enjoyed window-shopping and then, sat in a bench to have a time to catch up.

Adelaide Arcade is one of those old school arcades that oozes charm from the days before the Federation. There is a quaint cafe inside called Cafe L’Incontro which is a really good breakfast spot.
