Called in here for brunch recently. Frankly I was astounded by the extremely high level of service offered by the staff of this place. The young man who looked after me could not have been more helpful or pleasant. What a refreshing experience. The meal I had was generous in quantity, delicious and very reasonably priced. The coffee is also... More

We had morning tea delivered each day from the Malanda Dairy Centre and it was fabulous. Real cream with the scones and cakes to die for. This place is the reason I put on an extra kilo during my stay... :)

What a great find on our drive! Besides the cafe and yummy milkshakes, this provided us with an amazingly informative stop! The history of the Malanda and Millaa Millaa dairy industry was so interesting as was the military history that went with the area. Well worth the stop!

There is even a small museum dedicated to the "longest milk run in the world" - this tropical dairy country is a real eye-opener, and this great cafe is attached to the actual working milk factory

Stopped here as a pitstop, could not have chosen any better place for a coffee and cheesecake! They have many different cakes, all look very delicious, fresh (well, as the name says cant get any fresher :)) Coffee was also excellent, with real friendly service!

A must visit for a relaxing coffee and something to eat. My family and I travel up to Malanda every weekend and always look forward to coffee and a toasted sandwich. And of course a bit of cake. They also make delicious curries. Amazing service that is friendly and welcoming.

Lovely place for a meal. Not open every day though. Lovely Art works on the walls. Outdoor dining area as well. Statues and old tractor out the front. Plenty of parking. Highly recomend a visit.
