“Pleasant surroundings, friendly, efficient staff”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in Woodend for a brunch. Coffee was good. Service friendly and quick, seating comfortable, but tables rather close together and bathroom facilities basic. Interesting decor. Restaurant also sells take away meals prepared by chef. Spices, sauces, chutneys, bread etc. also on sale, but rather pricey and not necessarily of local origin. Well situated in centre of town. Worth a visit

“Good food and interesting decor”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Maloa is a cafe, delicatessen and homewares shop so it makes it a really interesting spot to have a meal. The food is great and coffee is not bad either. There is plenty to choose from and you can also buy lasagne, pies,quiches and salads to take home as well as some lovely homewares. It is definitely worth a stop for a meal and a browse. There isn't a lot of seating inside so make sure you get there early to avoid missing out.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

My husband and I stopped here while staying at Woodend on a very hot day at the start of January. We popped in mid-afternoon for coffee and cake and couldn't have been happier. We sat at the comfy bench seating and the waitress was very cheerful and polite and service was swift. The Orange and Coconut Cake was delicious and the coffee strong and tasty. The ambiance is wonderful - very relaxing and attractive. Surprised anyone would think it was pretentious. Very much recommended.

“MALOA HOUSE”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Maloa House is my stop-off point for a coffee when I visit Woodend. The coffee is almost always good, the food interesting. The shop is also a providore and housewares store.
