Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were welcomed as soon as we arrived and icy, cold water was on our table immediately. Great coffee and delicious breakfast. Highly recommend

They actually close already at 2PM so it is takeaway after that (or sitting outside). Other than that friendly service and good coffee.

For those of you who need to experience true customer service, MiPiace is definitely where you should be whether you need a quick snack, coffee or even a genuine conversation in the morning. Damien is down to earth and his staff are truly friendly and...bubbly. And the food, don't get me started. It is hard to decide what you want because they are made with love by the Chef's that work there. But their Savoury Muffin, Sausage Roll with thier special relish sauce are to die for. Just turn up, experience it for yourself. Take my word for it. You will keep going back.More

This was a pleasant place for breakfast with attentive service and good food. The coffee was not special as theused a vanilla flaoured milk which destroyed the latte. The Espressor was OK.

Came here for coffee as it was close to the Aquarium and had great reviews. Friendly and very attentive staff. Coffee was made well but they use Vittoria beans which are bitter and not smooth. We sat outside but it’s just on a busy road...so not very relaxing.More

Had a terrific breakfast this morning. Fantastic service, prompt friendly and professional. Food options on the menu are excellent. Coffee was nice but almond milk tasted too vanilla- ey. Change your brand it’s not good! Overall it was amazing and highly recommend.

This Espresso Bar deserves all the 5 star ratings it has received. Breakfast was outstanding, my scrambled eggs with chilli and Asian slaw was perfectly balanced followed by a brilliant doppio. I can’t fault any of the staff, they were all happy and enthusiastic.

I like it now, I will like it in the future. The name says it all. You couldn’t help but like this cafe. Great sincere and consistent customer service, we were greeted and seated as soon as possible- outside or inside. It was Saturday morning...so it was quite busy. Inside is air conditioned & full but we sat outdoors! We were provided with customer service contact by 4 different people in 10 minutes. Every waiter/owner/manager knew their job & their product very well. Great innovative menu- we had the breakfast bagel and the porchetta Benedict. Both delish. Coffee orders were prompt and delish. We are visiting from interstate and this was the best coffee we had over 7 days! Could not fault thisMore

I had breakfast at Mi Piace with some friends at the end of a trip to North Queensland. We decided to try it as it had excellent reviews. We were certainly not disappointed. The coffee was excellent but the porchetta Benedict was next level! It...was a huge serve and very tasty indeed.More

The coffee was delicious, I had 2 piccolos. My chili scrambled eggs were delicious, the waiters are very nice and attentive! They would fill my water up whenever it got low and asked me if I needed anything. I put my earphones in and they...let me exist 😂 Then when I took them out they spoke to me kindly and made conversation with me as they checked in on me to see if I wanted anything. Just a lovely little spot that’s well lit, positive and enjoyable, I will be coming frequently ☺️More
