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.

I often go to the Xtra Mile.. for brunch, lunch or a quick take away coffee. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is consistently good.

Not sure whether this is actually the best cafe - put it this way, having been here felt no need to try anywhere else. Coffee and food both excellent and staff very friendly and accommodating. Clearly the locals also heavily frequent this gem.

On the recommendation from a friend, we had breakfast at Xtra Mile. Everyone was happy with their selection. Returned for coffee the next day (and to pick up a quick breakfast for some of our team). There was food envy from those of the team...who drooled over the bacon and egg croissants. They looked amazing! I had a chat to the owners in the kitchen while waiting and really wanted to taste the homemade BBQ sauce they were whipping up. We returned on our last day for another breakfast. I'd certainly make it my local if I lived in Mount Isa.More

Morning tea with a good coffee but what about the Honeycomb cheesecake!!! Carrot cake also drew good comments. The decor was funky and funny. Will not have time to try the tapas dinner menu but memorable morning tea.

Had breakfast here, and they have a very good menu for breakfast and lunch and takeaway. Really nice food and great coffee and our service was quick with about 15 people or so in the shop.

We were greeted by a cheerful young lady who was very keen to assist us. The atmosphere was very eclectic and the background music at a level to enable conversation. We had “Spice it up” - a scrumptious chicken sandwich and “Southern Spiced Chicken” -...also a delicious dish for a light lunch. Latte was perfect Juices were great Definitely going back to try other menu items.More

Fantastic!! We had a delicious lunch here today and everything was delightful...the staff, the food and the funny quotes around the cafe. We immediately felt so comfortable here, the owners have definitely created a relaxed, community vibe to the place. The bookshelf was fabulous...what a...great idea to have a book swap section. I am vegan and have not had huge success with delicious food in the outback (I didn’t expect to, either!) but I was excited to find this cafe. Thanks guys, it was a real treat!!More
