Great place to get local cheeses & meats...keep going back to stock up the fridge 😀 Food served in the cafe is pretty average & the wait can be long however. Ice cream is lovely Well worth a look.

We drove around the hinterland yesterday and had read that Colin James had won a number of awards for ice cream so who could pass that up! We actually ate a toasted sandwich and club sandwich first for our lunch - both were very good- then shared an ice cream (passionfruit cheesecake & chocolate) which was worth the stop alone....

Enjoyed a simple meal and an ice-cream on my return journey from Kings Beach to Toowoomba. Very good quality. I was particularly impressed with the fromagerie where I managed to locate some of my strong, smelly cheeses, especially the difficult-to-find Limberger.

The Cherry Ripe Ice Cream, The Tiramisu ice cream and the Classic Chocolate were all winners. Incredible ice cream. Good, friendly service.

We go there every week-end for our morning coffee with some small biscuits. The biscuits are very poor value for money. It is a very popular venue and their icecream is the best you will find anywhere.

The shop basically sells Colin James ice cream, a few deli items, cakes/muffins and has the fromagerie as a side attraction. But it is ALWAYS full, and we even saw them try to turn customers away just after 4pm when they were trying to close! What does that say about this business? Its great and very popular. And the ice... More

This is a must visit ice cream store whenever up there! Tasting is available before purchasing. Cafe style meals are also well presented and delicious. Would not hesitate in recommending. Always a worthwhile visit.

This little coffee shop/cheese shop is very popular and has a good reputation well outside of the Maleny area. It was very busy when we were there at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon. We managed to get one of the small number of tables to eat our delicious ice cream. The Cherry Ripe ice cream is delicious. They have a... More

There is a very good reason Colin James has won so many awards for their ice cream. It's simply amazing! The fromagerie is also amazing. You cannot leave Maleny without making a purchase here. The coffee is good too.
