Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Off the well-known tracks of suburbia, down a little road, off Maud Street in Norval Court, Maroochydore, you'll find Macan Cafe. Macan Cafe have only been going for a few short months, but have a wonderful philosophy to life, wanting to leave memorable imprints rather than scarring footprints.

This new Cafe also uses locally owned and ethically sourced Kai Coffee, who sponsor children in need in countries like Africa, Asia and South America. This is accomplished by sponsoring a child with World Vision, after every five kilogrammes of Kai Coffee being sold. Kai Coffee also have an orphanage in Uganda called the Shepherd Center that they support through their very own espresso bar.

We visited Macan Cafe on a Saturday and as this is predominantly an office/industrial area, were delighted to find easy parking and the Cafe virtually all to ourselves. With indoor and outdoor very comfy lounge furnishings and a fireplace burning brightly indoors, the ambience was one of welcoming comfort. All I needed to do, was order our coffees, kick off my shoes and curl up on to a couch to enjoy the relaxing surrounds. I must mention here that the day we visited it was a gloomy, rainy sort of day on the Sunshine Coast. Hard to believe? I know.

Predominantly a very comfy coffee outlet with free wi-fi, Macan Cafe don't have a menu but have a range of sweet and savoury delicacies to enjoy with your coffee. With weekly and daily specials, you might be tempted to buy a wrap for lunch and get your coffee free (this was the Monday special advertised on the day we visited).
