Elm Haus Café

    This character-filled Mount Glorious café promises rustic mountain charm with all the comforts – not to mention amazing food, coffee and views!

    Elm Haus Café is a stunning timber building surrounded by trees, and located adjacent to the popular Maiala National Park.

    The café (open weekends and public holidays) offers breakfast and light lunches in a warm, homely atmosphere. Choose from seating on the large verandah overlooking the rainforest garden, or on a comfortable lounge by the fire.

    Keep the kids entertained in the children’s toy corner, with an assortment of board games to enjoy. The café is also wheelchair accessible and pet-friendly.

    Owner Karl-Heinz Woelkerling has aimed to bring a little piece of his European homeland to the mountain, including the German Farmers Breakfast – Bauernfrühstück.

    Elm Haus Café also serves traditional food such as lasagne, deep-pan pies, toasted sandwiches and delicious, locally-made cakes. Word is, they also have some amazing brownies and scones!
