The Old Bank Cafe is a great find in Maleny amongst all the weekend hustle and bustle on the main street. Nice casual spot to enjoy a meal in the air conditioning. The service was great and the food was even better. The beef burger is huge they definitely don't skimp on the ingredients!

So pleased we chose The Old Bank cafe to have our Sunday lunch. We go to Maleny every so often and recalled the cafe but not the decor, apparently it's recently changed owners and there have been changes e.g. licenced and Friday Jazz nights. I ordered a Quinoa salad which was wonderful and my husband had to BLT which he... More

Saw the special sign for their burgers, sounded good so went in and we had one each. Very, very nice! Nice bun, large, quality burger, great salad filling, homemade tomato relish and finished with aoli or mayonnaise. Served with fries, it was a great burger at a great price. We also had a iced coffee, also very, very nice. Service,... More

We stopped here for lunch, large menu choice with one Vegan dish available. Left that, went for a chicken pasta while my wife had salmon. Both really nice, my wife found the fresh pickled vegetables particularly nice. Service nice, prices ok, location good in that parking is available around the corner near the library if the main street is full... More

The big breakfast here was very good, plenty of bacon and eggs. It was delicious. The coffee was the right temperature and the service was friendly and quick. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the footpath in Maleny's main street watching the world go by. There's also seating inside. Parking is a lottery, we were early and lucky and parked in the... More

A favourite on a weekend. Beautiful veggie breakfast! Very generous serve! Mum is a sucker for the scones and jam. Lunch and the warm duck salad... now we're talkin! Gluten free? Vegetarian? This is your go to.

Very disappointing, ordered pasta it was so overcooked it was breaking off the fork and was not what the menu described. People had told me that it was not the best but being new to town thought we would give it a chance. We have not been back

Hi Stephanie. I apologise that your food wasn't up to our normal standard. Our Permernate chef was on leave and we were short staffed over the Christmas holidays. Again I apologise and if your back in Maleny please pop back for a FREE meal. I'll keep your name at the till. Many thanks Andy More

Food was average & over cooked. I ordered a $15 mojito and it came with no mint and loads of lime which tasted awful. When I questioned why there was no mint I was told they had run out! Very cheeky but they then offered to go buy some which I took up.

Went for lunch as a group of 4 (2 couples) & this was just the worst lunch experience! We placed separate orders & our friends meals came out in good time. Our meals didn't arrive & we waited patiently for ages! When we finally managed to ask where our food was, we were told it was coming, they were plating... More
