Maple 3 Cafe - Maleny, Queensland

January 11, 2019

While trying to find a lunch spot that won't be closing anytime soon, allowing us to actually sit down and enjoy our meals without having to worry about the closing time.. we found Maple 3 Cafe. With the elevated seating area, we were able to oversee the bustle of Maple Street with locals walking around and about to their local supermarket or shopping.

Maple 3 Caesar Salad was bigger than I thought and was filled with lots of goodness, enough sauce, not too rich and not too much. It was just right. With crisp lettuce, bacon, croutons, parmesan cheese, anchovies with creamy dressing. I decided to order it with smoked salmon extra instead of the usual chicken and I reckon it would've been good without it just on its own.

The amount of parmesan cheese was definitely insane, poured all over the whole salad and after mixing it altogether, it blends in nicely with the creamy dressing. The anchovies were much bigger than what you would usually get in other Caesar salads elsewhere but I didn't mind it, I liked it.. it wasn't very fishy but gave that extra kick to the salad along with the smoked salmon.

Toasted Panini with Tasmanian smoked salmon, baby cos lettuce, capers and sour cream. Looked quite like a squashed and sad sandwich for some reason, it just felt plain even with all that sour cream but maybe due to the fact that the panini wasn't even as thick as the others and maybe because the soft fillings in it made it soggier than what it could've been.

Another Toasted Panini with Turkey breast, camembert cheese, baby cos lettuce, avocado, cranberry and sour cream. Either the bread used wasn't thick enough or they cut it thicker for the top than the bottom.. With the combination of cranberry, sour cream and avocado, it just made it all mushy in a way. Trying to pick the sandwich up made bits and pieces fall down from the other end.

Maybe all of the previous toasted sandwich should've been with a focaccia instead as it kept the whole bun in tact with its fillings. Toasted Focaccia with smoked ham, jarlsburg cheese, avocado, baby spinach and sweet chilli sauce. The sweet chilli sauce smothered the ham and avocado well and the italian herbed focaccia gave it that smell of freshly baked bread for some reason.
