“Top line for icecream and coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Iconic business on Maple Street Maleny. Award winning icecream maker, favourite Banofe when it is on. Coffee good food reasonable service fair.
Only problem is that Colin James is so well known, and one of the very few airconditioned cafes on Maple, that it can be very busy and difficult to get a table in summer tourist season.

“Best Gelato I've Ever Had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

My wife and I love our ice cream and gelato and the gelato here was fantastic! Definitely try the fig and almond, and the hazelnut roche, our favourites!

“Nice icecream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Didn't eat here but food like nice. Not cheap, but I don't think there' s a cheap eat anywhere in Maleny or Montville. Service was on the slow side ... but welcome to Queensland.

Icecream was exceptional. Our family tried the goats milk chocolate for the lactose sensitive kids and it was very rich but nice. Husband had the cinnamon and ginger icecream which was also lovely.

Would definitely return for a coffee and a treat.

“Great coffee and busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Coffee was excellent standard. Sat right in front of the airconditioner - freezing! Had no other options as it was incredibly busy. Staff were quick to come wipe down tables. Excellent cheese room with varieties from all over the world. This was a highlight of the visit.

“Great Ice Cream & Cheese Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I've never eaten at Colin James, but I've brought the ice cream and cheeses from time to time, and both are excellent.
