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.

I’ve been here a few times based on my walking route and sadly the coffee continued to be average. Worst of all, was a big breakfast. It looked amazing, however they must be cooking everything in the kitchen with a cheap oil. There was no...taste to anything. Even the toast was tasteless with oil and not butter. I felt a little sickly after it.More

Vinaka (thank you) for the delicious coffee and cake. I had to walk in having walked past the day before. The welcoming facade makes for a wonderful first impression. You can sit here and watch the world go by. Your staff are lovely and friendly...and coffee and cake were efficiently served and delicious! Grazie!More

I'm waiting for a drink, and the bar manager serves another person before me. I politely asked why, was told I was out of line and refused service. Then I find out the whole bar refuse to serve me. The bar manager was very rude,...and she was very aggressive towards me. I felt so embarrassed. However, I did ring the place's manager and made an official complaint against the bar manager. I have no hesitation in exposing the rudeness and arrogance of this place through other social media outlets.More

Dear Rock, thanks for the phone call last night at 11.30pm to inform me of the situation. I have apologised and listened to your complaints and treated you with respect. Unfortunately, as I can gather from our security system, during our conversation you forgot to...More

Located in Peel St in the CBD in close range of shopping and entertainment area. Doubles as a cocktail bar at night. Indoor and outdoor seating with upstairs and downstairs. Found the inside quite cosy - it isn’t a big place. Staff were friendly, coffee...was quite good and reasonably priced. Will be going back on a regular basis.More

Top notch coffee backed by not only chic location of Peel Street but awesome staff. The decor and establishment is really cool and again the coffee… WOW. Best coffee in Adelaide

La Moka has been supplying me with my morning coffee that gets me through my day since June 2017. Great staff always got a smile for you and will have a joke as well. All I can say get there for some coffee during the...week and something to eat the food is excellent. ( La Moka Java Work Repeat ) Then on Friday when you want to wash work away get there order a drink & some food and relax with friends enjoy some great tunes and chill out. This is a great spot I guarantee you will enjoy every minute.More

Tried Peel Street, was buzzing with people found this little gem just for a cheese plate and a few drinks and before dinner or what ever. If in Adelaide Peel Street is a must, the street has it's own DJ for all the Bars and...restaurants.More

Visited Adelaide from Melbourne - I make sure to come to La Moka everytime. Good quality soy milk and a great roasted coffee bean. We had the zeppoli donut and almond croissant which were fresh and a good size. Service was prompt and very friendly,...can't fault it. Best coffee in town and a must have.More

Love sitting upstairs with a view over the cafe and Peel Street. Coffee comes with a biscuit which is nice. Lovely staff and reasonably priced coffee. A lovely nook within Peel Street <3

We had breakfast here and were suitably impressed with the porridge and the great tasting coffee. Lovely little fairly hidden coffee shop in the Adelaide CBD.

Situated in one of Adelaide's best laneways, it's an easy place for an early relaxing breakfast. A good choice of pastries, porridge, mueslis etc. but I didn't have the time to see what others have enjoyed for lunch and dinner. Did enjoy a cinnamon porridge...though.More

It was purely by chance that we came across and called in at La Moka for a short respite from walking around Adelaide. We only had tea and a beer to quench our thirst, but it was very enjoyable and we noticed that a number...of people appeared to be really relishing their food. It seemed to be a popular venue.More
