Located in the bustling heart of Mornington, Alto Cafe offers a delightful escape dedicated to the joys of shared dining and leisurely meals.

Upon entering Alto Cafe, you're welcomed into a cosy space that flawlessly melds rustic charm with modern style. It's your idyllic spot, where laughter and the sound of clinking glasses provide a heartwarming background to an Otago day.

Kick off your delightful dining experience with small plates that are big on flavour. The pork belly bites, gloriously dairy-free and gluten-free, are the epitome of juicy goodness, while the bruschetta lays out a vibrant mix of tomatoes and basil for vegetarians, offering a vegan option too. Be sure to try Alto's fried chicken & aioli or grab a plate of the baby back pork ribs, each ensuring your meal hits a wonderfully savoury note from the start.

For a communal dining experience, Alto Cafe's platters are masterpieces of collective joy. The cheese and pâté platter showcases local Evansdale cheeses and homemade pâté, complete with relish and infused prunes. Meat lovers will rejoice over the Ploughman's platter, a celebration of cured meats and rich flavours. On the plant-based side, The Curious Herbivore platter is an enticing array of buffalo cauliflower and falafel, among other vegetarian wonders.

Complement your meal with engaging conversation and today's soup bowl, or opt for a satisfying main that comfortably fills the air with anticipation. When evening arrives, end on a high note with a dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth.

Enjoy your beverages, where each wine is handpicked to perfectly accompany your meal, and the coffee is expertly brewed – affirming the café's name.

Let Alto Cafe be your top choice for your next gathering, where every visit is an event to remember, and the tables are always set for sharing. It's the perfect venue for reconnecting with loved ones or creating new cherished moments, celebrating the genuine pleasure of excellent food and companionable vibes.
