When up here from down south we always like to have lunch here. Smack in the middle of Maleny Main Street it’s close to main shopping area. Healthy food choices. Lovely upstairs, light and airy. Can choose from upstairs, outside or inside. Always busy.

We were looking for a warm spot for lunch on a rainy day. Found a table upstairs. Loved the wall artwork and plant pots. Very cool. Food was great - had roast vegetables & haloumi burger & chips, and lychee mint cooler. Very tasty!

Chanced upon this cafe while browsing the shops in Maleny. Lunch there was excellent - I had one of the best burgers I've had in a long time, and my wife also enjoyed her toasted delicacy (see photo). Perhaps the only problem with Monica's is...More

NO, I think you could get one as there are lots. If you have a preference for wither outside or upstairs, might be an idea. It is busy, but it turns over fairly quickly.
