We called in for coffee and cake and while it was a little busy we were disappointed when our coffee arrived quickly but was well and truely finished before our cakes. After 35 mins we asked and another 5 mins later my scones (I ordered plain but got fruit) and my husbands Pear Ginger and Coconut cake arrived. My scones were just OK and my husbands cake just average. The table was wet but dried sticky. It was just a disappointing experience.

I can see you maybe having a bad day. I did notice your coffee quickly and they went down well !, this time frame you suggest is not indicative of your arrival and departure time. All our scones and cakes are made on site.

We have been here quite a few times for morning teas and are yet to experience their breakfast and lunches. Their cakes are all home made and are delish. Love the eclectic surroundings and gift shop. They also do fabulous High Teas. This place is a must do!

We purchased a voucher for my sister in law for her birthday. We were lucky to be able to join her and so glad we did.
The venue is set in a valley to appreciate the lovely country views.
The food was very fresh and yummy, gluten free options were very tasty too. Served by very nice staff.
Next time I am having the foot massage which I have been told is wonderful.

Our favourite place to eat when visiting Montville. Always amazing food with so many options for breakfast, brunch or lunch or even if you’re just after cake and a coffee. You won’t be disappointed! So many delicious house made cakes and treats. High tea is one of their specialties and Sarah and her staff are so friendly and the service is always great. Would highly recommend Elements if you’re ever in the area. Coffee is some of the best on the Sunshine Coast too. With Kondallila Falls just down the road, it’s always a great place to stop before or after an adventure to the falls.

Took my mum and MIL to the vintage high tea as a birthday present for them both. It was such a beautiful outlook over the mountain, and the high tea felt very special and elegant. Even down to the teacups, it was beautiful. The food was delicious, especially the sandwiches! With 4 people sharing the food, there was more than enough to eat (even had to take some home!), and the tea options were wonderful. It would’ve been nice to have the teapot left on the table so we could top our tea up more often, but that may have been due to covid restrictions or to add to the atmosphere. After enjoying the high tea, we enjoyed exploring the shop part of the cafe, which was filled with lovely, quirky things. It was a great morning that was certainly worth the drive from Brisbane.
