delicious plantbased wholefoods - Edit

if you are looking for wholesome fresh and filling foods then this is the place to be! highly recommend the ice chai (comes with coconut ice cream, yum!)
I'm generally a junk food vegan but even I can't stay away from the salads and raw tart! they source the produce from local farms and it is all spray free too.

Pros: friendly staff, delicious food, great prices

Cons: only con is they offer dairy milk as an option for

What a RAW Food Experiance!!! - Edit

Wow.. We found this amazing place in the hinterland of Sunny Queensland Australia (Maleny). The food and Raw cakes were out of this world and "exceptional" Andy, the owner was the best host I've found in a Raw food café. He went out of his way to make our raw food journey memorable and exciting. The café had a great energy too... Andy is a Vegan ambassador for Australia and holds regular "Health Food Talks". Well done guys.

Pros: Great Raw Vegan Food , Amazing Host and Staff , Health Education

Perfect Afternoon Tea Treat - Edit

My partner and I visited Maleny last Saturday - such a beautiful drive through the hinterland. We came across Live Foods Cafe by chance - how lucky were we! The food is amazing (we had a dessert treat, duo of salad and a green smoothie). The food was delicious and filling. Next door is also a wellness centre which is perfect! The owners had a great chat with my partner and I and both were full of great knowledge of raw foods, nutrition and gut health. Can't wait to visit again!

Pros: Beautiful Food, Wonderful, Positive Peple, Location - Next to the Wellness Centre

Amazing!!! - Edit

Wow what can I say?! Officially one of my favorite vegan cafes. Andy was so lovely and friendly, the food is absolutely amazing... So full of flavor! I was too full to try any of the deserts but they looked so good! The atmosphere and location of the cafe is just beautiful, I wish I lived near here so I could go more often. They sell a small selection of books, nuts and nut cheese too.

Pros: atmosphere, big selection of food

Truly what the name stands for - Edit

Wife and I ate lunch at this very nice location during the Easter break. The food is great and fresh. They have a great variety of desserts too, though we didn't try them. The fresh juices are amazing. We can't wait to go there again. The reason for 4 stars is mainly because of my crazy appetite, so I would appreciate a slightly bigger quantity but that might be too much for others.

Pros: Quality of food, location, service

Thar's Gold in them thar hills - Edit

Went here for lunch on my birthday and it was absolutely perfect. Its a beautifully decorated cafe up in scenic Maleny. The owners and staff were cheery, welcoming, chatty and efficient despite being busy. We tried two different raw pizza slices and a trio of salads and all were delicious and filling. So many unusual but phenomenal tastes - these guys really know how to add special touches to make food look and taste fantastic. Since it was my birthday we decided to force ourselves to eat cake and these are great too - really up with the best (raw) desserts I have ever eaten.
