The food is great, the service is even better!
We stayed here for quite some time catching up with a dear friend and no one hurried us along - they just kept bringing us water.
Many options in the area, very happy we chose this one.

Breakfast in the artistic town of Maleny at The Old Bank was great. Serving my toasted fruit bread on a bread board was a great touch. The GF got her mushrooms on Turkish bread on an equally aweshine enamel plate
Good coffee and the service was lovely
Snaffle an outside table if you can

We have just discovered this fairly new restaurant in our annual trip to Maleny. Just great food, fabulous wines, coopers beer on tap, good service and open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Can't wait to try the soft taco night on a Thursday night. Look for the coopers sign. Will definitely be back.

After just completing a 30 km bike ride through the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland (and not falling off) I was ready to try a 'new-ish' cafe in Maleny for Sunday breakfast. Okay, so I actually couldn't read the menu! The writing was too small and I don't carry my glasses on the bike! BTW this is a pet hate of mine - how difficult is it to make the type larger!! Fortunately a conveniently located specials board told me that 'Lambs Fry' was on the menu and nostalgic memories of childhood had me deciding on this dish. It was good -perhaps a little over-cooked but then who wants bloody liver? Friends enjoyed the 'Omega breakfast' a nicely presented smoked-salmon, avocado and srambled-egg with sour-dough. Not sure if the eggs were free range as couldn't read the menu. When it comes to coffee in Maleny expectations are low, however the coffee expert with us was happily surprised with his 'long black'. Overall had a pleasant time and thought the dishes interesting and well presented.

Hi Lyliot,
Thanks for reviewing The Old Bank Cafe, we really appreciate your feedback. I was interested to read your opinion on the small font. We have it on 12 point font to keep it all on one page but I see your point! How would you feel about a large font menu available on request? Do you think that would work?

Hope to hear from you again (and even more to see you one day!)
Cheers
Liz

Looking only for a light lunch came across the Old Bank Cafe. We decided to share a pizza which was an excellent choice between two as we weren't all that hungry and it was just enough for us. Great service, very clean cafe and friendly staff made for a very pleasant experience. Pizza and 2 coffees $21.50. Very enjoyable would definitely go back whenever in Maleny.
