We had a coffee and orange and almond cake here which was enjoyable. The star though was a the French rind goat cheese which we bought from the cheese larder. We polished this off later in the day with a bottle of champagne.

Great cheese!! Free samples!! All cheese well priced! Very cool for my 7 year old to sit at the table eating while watching the factory below! Worth a stop for a hour or so nothing more :)

My wife and I had lunch here last Sunday. We had meals and coffee for about $40. The food was delicious and the portions were a good size. I tried the focaccia with smoked salmon. Seems to be very popular for ice cream as well.

Description
The Maleny Food Co. story began in 2001 when it was first founded as Colin James Fine Foods, opening on Maple St, Maleny. Starting out as a café and fromagerie, our gelato and sorbet was made daily on site in traditional artisan style. As word spread and the awards began to accumulate, our name became synonymous with ‘truly amazing’ gelato. Since those early days we have continued to expand our operations, using artisan techniques in our purpose-built manufacturing facility in Maleny, Queensland, and our products can now be found in a growing number of restaurants, gelato shops, boutique grocers and cafes. We now welcome a new chapter in our story, and while our name has changed, our values and the quality of our award winning gelato and sorbet remain the same. Our vision is to create an integrated business of food manufacturing, food retailing and food tourism, built on a strong connection to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. We are passionate about showcasing Maleny, the surrounding region, its people, produce and stories. We invite you to visit us at our store in Maple Street, Maleny, to experience our walk-in fromagerie, select from our range of local produce, enjoy a coffee, or the deli-style dining and of course, try our delicious gelato and sorbet.
