We only went in to get an ice cream but the range was great, good size serves and well priced in comparison to the Mooloolaba strip we had visited days earlier. The ice cream was fantastic, with some really interesting flavours.More

Wow what a delightful place for a meal. And huge servings too. Lemongrass and Ginger was also superb. Sorbet and Gelato the best. This is best restaurant we have been to in years

We drove up to Maleny and searched out this place on a recommendation. Neat and clean, we arrived at 3pm and had to order from the cabinet rather than the kitchen. Food was quite nice and mid-range pricing (approx $10 a serve). The restaurant was...More

What a wonderful selection of world class cheeses and other deli items, for a fromagophile this is heaven. The lady suggested some exquisite varieties for our cheese platter and advised on suitable quantities for our party.More

We had lunch here with friends and we all chose a different meal and all were excellent as was the coffee. The restaurant is famous for its gelatos also. Good service.

I visited this establishment's fromagerie on my way home to Toowoomba from Kings Beach at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast. Unfortunately, they did not stock my favourite (and strong) cheese, viz. Limberger, so I chose instead Danish Esrom, which is almost as delectably smelly. This...More

Description
The Maleny Food Co. story began in 2001 when it was first founded as Colin James Fine Foods, opening on Maple St, Maleny. Starting out as a café and fromagerie, our gelato and sorbet was made daily on site in traditional artisan style. As word spread and the awards began to accumulate, our name became synonymous with ‘truly amazing’ gelato.

Since those early days we have continued to expand our operations, using artisan techniques in our purpose-built manufacturing facility in Maleny, Queensland, and our products can now be found in a growing number of restaurants, gelato shops, boutique grocers and cafes.
We now welcome a new chapter in our story, and while our name has changed, our values and the quality of our award winning gelato and sorbet remain the same.

Our vision is to create an integrated business of food manufacturing, food retailing and food tourism, built on a strong connection to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. We are passionate about showcasing Maleny, the surrounding region, its people, produce and stories.

We invite you to visit us at our store in Maple Street, Maleny, to experience our walk-in fromagerie, select from our range of local produce, enjoy a coffee, or the deli-style dining and of course, try our delicious gelato and sorbet.
