Cafe Review – Mi Piace Espresso Bar, Cairns Australia

We have driven past Mi Piace Espresso Bar many times on our way out of town but the lure for the Sushi train a few blocks down has always been our priority. Finally, we devoted a little thought to our plan of attack recently in that we made a bee line for Mi Piace on the way into town instead… brilliant. Mi Piace Espresso in, Sushi out….mmm, sounds like a paranormal bowel movement.

We usually drop in on Ten One Twenty Cafe at Edge Hill whenever we can’t stop at Palm Cove, so checking out Mi Piace was always going to be a concerted effort but I’m glad we did. It’s way more the urban, business district type coffee haunt that you might find in Collins Street Melbourne than the Captain Cook Highway in Cairns. But it is a nice change and it is done really well in that the building is very funky and the layout is clever. I’m afraid I can’t comment on the food of which the plates do look classy along with a very tempting range of cakes and sweets. But I’m happy to say I enjoyed the brew (large latte) and the earthenware style mugs almost as much. It’s not of the caliber of Industry One or Ten One Twenty Cafe but those a big shoes to fill. We will definitely be stopping by again… if the sushi stars aren’t aligned.
