The aerobatic flight I had done at Caloundra earlier in the day had given me an appetite and seeking to escape the sea level heat on one of the hottest days on record (43 degrees) led me up to Maleny where it was 'only' 38 degrees. The place was quite full so we went upstairs and squatted on a ow... More

The quaint restaurant on the Maple street sits near other boutique shops so is a great place to stop for lunch. There is seating on the patio, inside and upstairs. There is wide selection of healthy and tasty options. It is a tad expensive but worth it!

Came here for breakfast, got the avocado smash with haloumi and a couple of coffees. The service was friendly and super fast. The food was delicious and really reasonably priced. The cafe has been decorated really tastefully with lots of quirky curios. Loved it!
