Visiting Monica's you can expect the best of everything. The Environment, decor', Service, food and the best Coffee anywhere! Lisa and Jo go to so much trouble and along with their well trained staff, make every occasion, as if it were their first. Thank you guys, love your work, Greg.

Love this place, love the staff the food and the coffee. Definitely my favourite place to eat in Maleny won't go anywhere else. We come in almost every Saturday and to see the staff recognise us and almost know our orders off by heart is amazing😊

My partner and I are huge breakfast cafe fans so naturally when staying in Maleny we tried a few. Monica's is by far the best cafe in all of Maleny (so good we went twice in 2 days)!

The Coffee is simply outstanding and the only cafe I know that can make an excellent decaf coffee. The staff and service are also good. The food is reasonably good but not outstanding. Nice atmosphere too.

I am sitting upstairs at Monica's with my partner, luxuriating in the memory of my plate-scrapingly delicious eggs benedict with bacon. My partner demolished the smashed avocado with haloumi and is waxing lyrical about it as I type. Everything is right about this cafe. Nice decor; friendly service; all the food at the counter looks yum and my meal was... More
