Hubby knows I like a good burger and heard there was a place that had good one's in Maleny, so one weekend, on the spur of the moment we drove there on a beautiful sunny day. After we arrived the place quickly filled up, some having lunch and some in there for the Devonshire tea which seemed to be popular.
I can't believe how much a burger costs now-days,(and this was no exception at $18ish) but the one's I have had recently have been obviously frozen patties with a dry texture or worse. This one was yummy, home made juicy patty with a relish and salad and cheese on a soft toasted bun. Something had a hint of cumin or curry in it but it didn't overpower anything. The bun - to patty - to relish ratio was perfect and I didn't need to use the BBQ sauce I had ordered on the side like I usually do because it tasted great.
Hubby had a chicken burger and said it was pretty good too. Kids menu was good - fresh ham on the bone from the butcher a few shops down on their ham and cheese toastie and it was big enough for them to share with a side of chips. Chips were good (not the best I've had but not bad either) and they have some delicious, cold tap beer on offer - I didn't even ask what it was but it was nice.
Atmosphere of the café could do with some modernising - chairs weren't that comfy but it was nicely spaced out inside.
Maleny has become quite the trendy little street, full of boutique and hippy shops - we headed to an ice-cream place up the road afterwards that boasted a cheese shop at the front and it was packed. Was a lovely visit to Maleny - check it out if you're ever passing through.

A recent lunch at the Old Bank was a return for us after an absence of a few years. The decor is interesting, and the menu offers a small variety of meals with a limited wine list. Service is quite good after queueing at the counter to order, or returning to queue for more drinks. The position of the toilets at the top of a steep stair is impossible for people with mobility difficulties like my wife. Meals were quite well prepared and presented, and staff were willing to make variations for dietary needs.

Seemed like a good restaurant and the cabanara meal was rated well. The fried fish seemed a bit over cooked, maybe the oil needed changing. Other restaurants further along the street seemed busier and more open and inviting. Couldn't fault the wait staff.
