Beautifully decorated cafe. Coffee and shakes were done well. Busy time of the year but the service was a bit gruff and unwelcoming.

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!

Always busy on the weekends but that proves it's good for it! Breaky, brunch, lunch - all amazing. Coffee is superb and the juice selection is really delicious. Staff are friendly and service is pretty quick given how busy it can get! Eat indoors, upstairs or outdoors. Great for gluten free - most amazing bread I have had in ages!... More

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😊
