Mia Coffee make it their business to guarantee good consistent coffee. As a former owner of a successful café in Australia I know coffee and need my coffee to be consistently good. Mia Coffee never disappoints but there’s so much more.
Camped in Hoi An just four doors down from Mia Coffee I felt blessed that this blissful spot was in stumbling distance. By my second visit the staff already knew my coffee preference – flat white served extra hot – and it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Over the next three months I stopped in at Mia Coffee on my walk to work every day and they never missed a beat. They’re a great team that’s always friendly and the prices are cheaper than a lot of the café competition in and around Hoi An as well.
Located in the original French quarter Mia Coffee is surrounded by great local photography & art galleries. It’s very comfortable and the magnificent upstairs wrap-around veranda with its bird’s-eye view of Phan Boi Chau is not to be missed. Downstairs, an inner sanctum and another veranda option provide plenty of options at street level too.
A modern roasting machine sits proudly in the main service area and is roasting beans on a regular basis. If you’re lucky enough to have a coffee machine at home you can buy freshly roasted bags of whole beans as well as ground. The roasting date is clearly displayed on each bag.
The staff are gifted in making coffee any way you like and if you’re stomach’s rumbling fantastic toasted paninis are whipped up in a trice. I also have a weakness for the natural muesli served with natural yoghurt and topped with fresh mango and passionfruit. Great to have a sugar-free breakfast option.
Should you be craving a sugar fix, however, they make a mean in-house carrot cake and a scrumptious lemon cheesecake. Yes, I’ve tried both and they’re great value.
If you need to chill out for a while Mia Coffee has a relaxing vibe, good wifi and you’re always welcome to stay as long as you like. I’d have traveled right across town for a Mia Coffee hit every day if I had had to and I’ve come to understand that many Hoi An locals do just that.
