Good service (little slow on a Friday lunch), lovely fresh food. Bought some imported cheese within shop for our weekend on the Tableland and had to finish off with a gelato to cool off!

The ice cream was lovely. The service for the coffee was however, really slow. It took nearly 20 Minutes. It was quite nice when it arrived. The village of Maleny is really quaint and is really worth a visit.

Love the gelato here! I can never resist the cherry ripe & will always get a take home pack with 2-3 flavours. Have never had a bad one & as long as they never get rid of my favourite flavour I will keep coming! The fromage is also well worth it & I have purchased cheeses & meats from here... More

I only stopped off for a gelati, which was way too tempting to resist, whilst wandering up the main street of Maleny yesterday. Very much appreciated, as the outside temperature was around 36-37 degrees celsius, so something cool + refreshing was definitely needed. Settled on 2 scoops, the flavours being passion-fruit cheesecake, along with white chocolate + raspberry. Absolutely delicious... More

It's never quiet when visiting this cafe (always busy), whether for a refreshing sorbet or gelato (simply devine), for a casual bite to eat - the Ploughman's is always a winner, but more importantly to visit the Fromagerie. A good selection of cheeses - local and from a far. Award winning.

Hi Danny, We think the Ploughman's is a winner too! So happy to hear you enjoyed this as much as we do. Look forward to having you return soon, and perhaps we can tempt you again with a visit to our Fromagerie. More

Visited here after having lunch at another Maleny icon (Maleny cheese 😋), and OMG I say! What a place. The Fromagerie is absolute heaven on earth, the display, the varied selection and the aroma of cheeses can only be experienced it is beyond description.

I've been to Colin James (now The Maleny Food Co) a few times over the last couple of years. I love (!!!) the selection of cheeses. You'll find cheeses from Europe, other parts of Australia and local cheeses. Very, very good for Queensland. The ice cream is also excellent - kids love it. I got there late on a Sunday... More

The walls are adorned with prizes for their icecream so little wonder the taste experience is exquisite. How they manage to get the icecream smooth and creamy like they do without it being too rich or overwhelming is extraordinary and the range of flavours, which is constantly changing, is amazing. I have never seen the counter without people in front... More

I had trouble finding this today as it has changed ownership and name more than 12 months ago to Maleny Food Company. I was assured the recipes were the same though.
