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.

Located in the city centre and close to Randle Mall, this arcade is with the historic building with lots of shops on both side. You can find shoppers visiting these shops as well as using the arcade as a pass thru area.
