Stopped in this gem of a shop for Devonshire tea, but also left with an assortment of cheese, salami and olives. Great service and tasting.

Colin James in Maleny has a very nice tasting range of different flavoured ice-creams. These are very creamy tasting. Creme caramel & sticky date were both nice tasting ice-creams. When we arrived the line was at the door with everyone lining up for ice-cream, even in winter time, probably as it tasted yummy, and was worth the line up, after... More

I have been to Colin James numerous times and have even made special trips just for the ice-cream. They have won numerous awards and it is always a treat to go there for coffee and a snack, lunch or just the ice-cream. Always busy, but always great friendly service.

What more can I say about the best icecream I have ever eaten! Also using local ingredients where possible. Many times we have had icecream here. No better advert for the town of Maleny & the shop.

I can never pass through Maleny without stopping at Colin James' for ice cream. It is the best! And of course bring along an esky to take home some magnificent cheeses. Shared some smoked Applewood cheddar and pate with friends the next day and they all wanted the address. Fantastic!

The food was great and offered a tasty tame of choices including a gluten free cone, which i hadn't seen before. The food was delicious. We went on a Sunday and the place was packed so it took a long time to order and be served. Very squeezey inside so one or two less tables would help from constantly being... More

Very nice food. Surprisingly good sized servings for a toasted sandwich, 3 slices of bread and very tasty. We didn't even have room for a desert or the ice creams!

I went with my wife to have something to eat but unfortunately we arrive late and the kitchen was closed but we had the chance to try the ice creams. I ordered chocolate and vanilla and I have no words to describe the delicious taste of those two flavours. My wife tried the macadamia and was delighted as well. I... More
