What a fantastic lunch special at Monica’s today - Pomegranate Salad with fried holumi- on a hot day definitely order this refreshing dish.

We recently had breakfast at Monica's. It was very good value and delicious. We also bought some cakes to take home for morning tea and they were also fantastic. This cafe is well worth a visit.

Delicious, flavorful, thoughtful menu and wonderful coffee. Menu sets this place apart from other run of the mill places. If you've driven to Maleny to experience the wonderful scenery then finish off your drive with a meal at Monica's - you won't be disappointed.

Best Cafe in the Maleny Main Street. We walked up and down the street and sat down at a few cafes and then decided on this cafe and sat in the upstairs area. All meals were beautiful.

NO, I think you could get one as there are lots. If you have a preference for wither outside or upstairs, might be an idea. It is busy, but it turns over fairly quickly.
