We stopped especially in Melany to have some ice-cream here. It was great, tasted like the ice-cream in Italy. The servings were of a decent size as well!

The chocolate gelato here was amazing. Great flavour, rich and not too sweet. Certainly compares well with gelato in Italy. I can't speak to the other flavors but they all looked nice as well. Could improve the cones however.

The ice cream is delicious. The range of cheese is superb. We stopped for an ice cream which is a “mandatory “ when in Maleny. Then we couldn’t go past the fromageri

Food was nice and a decent place to have lunch but slow service and the menu was a bit limited. Would try somewhere else next time.

I really love the ice cream and gelato here but over time the small size has gotten VERY small. Disappointing.

Whenever we travel up to this area, this is our eatery of choice. Wonderful sandwiches and light meals. Good coffee and great ice creams to finish the meal.

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.
