The food was so yummy and everything is made in the cafe, right down to the caramelised onions on the delicious burger. The vegan crepe was amazing and I'm not even vegan.

The aerobatic flight I had done at Caloundra earlier in the day had given me an appetite and seeking to escape the sea level heat on one of the hottest days on record (43 degrees) led me up to Maleny where it was 'only' 38 degrees.

The street and shop level were very busy. So I headed up the stairs, which gives you a great overview of the cafe. However, more importantly it provdes a quiet area for a relaxing breakfast.I was lucky and found the big comfy lounge I ordered a big breakfast with bacon and eggs with a lactose free coffee. The service was... More
