My partner & I visited Maleny Cheese on Saturday (weekend just passed). There was no pressure to purchase anything or guilt/obligation that sometimes comes with sampling things. Staff were friendly, cheerful & knowledge about all of their products & how they are made. Cafe area overlooks cheese factory floor, which adds to the experience. Try: A tasting plate, ($10 for small, $20 for large) which comes with a good variety of hard & soft local cheeses, some crackers and some relish. We found the small tasting plate more than enough for two people, and very good value at $10.

My wife and I dropped in to the shop/cafe to get some cheese. Plenty of parking, nice cafe area and gardens. Great display of cheese with tastings on offer. We tasted a few which were all good (we do like all cheeses). The staff were very cheery and pleasant and very helpful in our tastings. We got a couple of soft cheeses and left happy with our experience.

That was great to read your comments about our garden and café atmosphere too, as well as the cheese. I'll be passing the feedback on to the garden team especially.
Hope you get an opportunity to visit again one day

On our way back from visiting the Maleny Botanical Gardens, our Australian hosts said that they had to pick up some cheese from their favourite cheese producer. The store and plant is something to see because you can look down into the production plant and see the staff working with the cheese products. You can get in line at the sales counter and sample or drool over the huge selection of different cheeses. I choose the wasabi cheese as a sample and after that, I was hooked and just had to buy some. The prices are more than reasonable especially when you consider how fresh and unique each different cheese is. Our friends bought several different kinds that they love. We could hardly wait for a little wine and cheese time back at the house. Overall, the atmosphere is great and the service and food is fantastic. Go there and let your food senses run wild.

We always stop here when we visit Maleny and have never been disappointed. The cafe is quite small but the food is very good. Make sure you pick up some cheese and yoghurt, it's really good!

We went on a Saturday so the cheese factory wasn't in action, which was a bit disappointing.

We had the large cheese platter with a warm baguette - the bread was fresh and the cheese were delicious.

The service is friendly but lacking a bit - it looked like they could do with more staff given how busy it was. It was so busy, that I didn't want to return to the counter to select cheese to purchase - I picked it up at the Maleny IGA instead. The brie is especially good! Don't go expecting any kind of ambiance, just lots of cheese!
