Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Found in the Main Street, this was a busy venue for a lovely lunch. Maleny is. really beautiful town, with stunning scenery. This cafe was quite rustic, with nice food and good service. Our only disappointment was to visit on a day when menu changes...were being implemented, thus some of our choices were unavailable in this instance. However the menu was varied, and inviting.More

This is a fabulous cafe whereby the service, quality and seating space appealed to me. The location was convenient for me as I was touring Maleny enroute through to Kenilworth with friends. I had the chai latte and was pleased with the friendly service. Keep...it up girls.More

We had lunch with two adults and three teens. Three of us had the French Dipper, which consisted of a bowl of French onion soup and a baguette sandwich of beef and cheese. It was delicious! One had a toasted sandwich and the other pancake...(?). There was a colada smoothie, think shake, milkshake and berry smoothie. The drinks were good. I would definitely have the French Dipper, again.More

What a delightful find in Melany. First good sign was the friendly staff, then the super appealing menu. Started with two fresh, tasty and generously sized fruit juices . Then halloumi salad and broccolini and green bean salad. Both fresh, delicious and perfectly proportioned. Will...return.More

The Owner has zero hospitality skills. We found her aggressive, angry and she is possibly best to go into another business where no people’s skills are required. I see she has a reputation on TripAdvisor plus also in Maleny as many people know of her!

Beautiful little spot here in the middle of town, very popular and super busy! Small menu but that's perfect, never want too many options. You always have extra goodies in the food cabinet too. Fast and efficient service, super friendly lady behind the counter and...the waiters as well. I ordered the Avo smash with salmon (GF) and it was well presented and delicious. I found it good value as well and to top it off, the lady behind the counter went the extra mile to ask if I celiac. Now that's what I call good service. I had a long black coffee which was good, nothing too special there. My only bad note was the older lady on the coffee machine. She was barking orders and sounded a little tough on the younger ladies. Perhaps she was having a bad day but sometimes, it's best to use an inside voice (not to ruin the atmosphere).More

I have never left a review before but am so shocked by the way I was spoken to today + am not surprised now to come here to see I am not the only one who has been on the receiving end of the rude...staff (or I'm guessing manager) I ordered a takeaway coffee and was fine with the wait time. Single mum with my baby and two toddlers who then decided needed the bathroom. When asking if there was a bathroom I got told to check in or I cannot use the amenities, before even being able to say my phone was flat can I sign in manually the lady was walking away self righteously saying she will not let me use them because I haven't checked in. Legally every business has to provide manual check in. I was so embarrassed to be turned away from taking my young children to the bathroom (a very basic human right) and had to explain to them we were not allowed and had to walk them half way across town in search for another bathroom (if you have young kids you know how challenging and stressful this is) I am disgusted at the way we were treated, apparently all human decency has gone out the window here. In my wait time I also witnessed other customers be spoken to rudely before receiving a mediocre coffee. I will NEVER come back here and will be letting my friends and family know my experience so they never have to feel what I felt today.More

I have visited shotgun twice within the week my family stayed in Maleny and both times it was amazing. The atmosphere is great, food is delicious and the staff keep up with the rush of people well. Some highlights were the beef bulgogi sandwich and...the mushroom bruschetta. I would definitely recommend stopping by if you’re in Maleny or surrounding regionsMore

First thing you will notice is the lady behind the machine who looks everyone like she doesnt want anyone to be there. Really strict in terms of covid restriction but she’s the one who doesnt wear mask!! Seriously dont spend single penny on this place....You can feel the bad energy and rudeness of the manager or whoever she is. They were serving campos. I’ve had always drink campos coffee but never in my life had as bad coffee as this old lady made. I will never come back and i will always tell anyone that i know about my experience. Shame on you you should stay away from serving people. The reviews were 100% true!More

I ordered the vegan avocado toast, which I paid $2 extra for the 2 spoonful of avocado on the tiniest toast. There were a couple of tomatoes and a a few mushrooms on it. Payed $18 for this tiny thing that was the size of...a canapé. My husband ordered a BLT for $12, which he found very tasty, but again it was literally two bites. We payed $35 in total, probably we got charged for the air we were breading too. Staff was ok, not nice not rude. I would definitely not go back there ever. After this we had to sit in somewhere else for a proper brekie.More
