    We had a lovely time a Malt Pier. The staff were very lovely and accommodating. We all absolutely loved the high tea. To only make I perfect would be not so many pastries but all was delicious, coffee and chai great and loved the high tea with the fruit too. We will definitely be back.

    A disappointing experience. After waiting 30min for our order to turn up upon inquiry we were advised it had not been placed. As you would note from my comment scant attention is paid to clients. Apparently it was a busy shift as noted by one of the staff. On receiving our meal - honestly - it was nothing to write home about.

    Malt is a great place to enjoy a coffee or lunch with friends. Its quite a vibrant and eneregtic space so best for a work lunch or social catch up rather than a chilled lunch. The service is refined and a credit to the team there. The main courses were fantastic, however the dessert menu left a lot to be desired which is why it focuses on being more of a quick lunch spot or brunch rather than degustation and slow afternoon. One challenge in the area is parking, its challenging to find a spot, but if you are ubering in then you will have no hassles. We will be back!

Definitely will be back, and recommend everyone to give it a go, just not on the days I wish peace and quiet. We drove in from Ipswich and will do it again, well done all the staff.

    Booked here for our anniversary lunch. Fantastic service and lovely food. We also loved the music playlist! Not something that gets commented on very often but it was great. We ordered both of the desserts to share and were recommended to have a coffee while we waited for the chef to get to them as he was smashing out lunches. Great tip and the coffee was also excellent. Highly recommend.

    I have always wanted to visit this lovely riverside cafe. I attended the cafe last Saturday while on a bike ride in brisbane. I had to change my booking time on the day and they were more then happy to accommodate my request. I sat outside with my push bike enjoying the sunshine and the chicken and bacon open sandwich. Staff were friendly and accomodating and the food was delish. Can't wait to return on my next brisbane bike ride.

    Malt Pier is consistently good. Both my friend and are are trying to lose some visceral fat. We had the snapper special which fitted our low carb/sugar criteria. It was delicious. The texture of chocolate dessert was shared and although good, I think the taste didn't merit the carbs. Service was excellent!
