Enzo warmly welcomes you to our charming sandstone restaurant. . . As the story goes, 'enzo' have been established since 1996, yes one of the original cafes in wine country pokolbin! When there were dirt roads 'n stuff! We are historically known for our alfresco dining and 7 days trade throughout our years! And now proud to extend that with introducing Friday and Saturday dinners - that's how much we love what we do! Over the years this once upon a time homestead, home to the Irelands, has expanded and evolved and become home to enzo. Original fittings of the kitchen areas and fireplace still remain untouched. Hand cut sandstone, laid by hand, and the hardwood beams from the wharf of sydney harbour, create the lived-in feel that people return for. We welcome you to our home of dining, celebrating and good times, and ask you to continue to share with us. Enjoy!

This café would have had 4 stars from us apart from a few things. First and foremost the dreadful, loud piped music and surprisingly basic toilets. Certainly the menu was good, service was fine and food in general very nice. We did have to ask for our chips to be returned as they were only half-cooked and soggy, which was... More

Great coffee and service. Despite being a little out of the way it is no wonder the place is so popular even mid week when we visited a couple of times

We enjoyed afternoon tea at Cafe Enzo after travelling up from Sydney. The coffee was smooth and creamy and the scones were delicious and enormous! We couldn't eat our last scone and we just had to take it with us so the waitress gave us some extra jam in a container. Cafe Enzo-excellent food and service!

Wow we loved this quaint little cafe. The atmosphere was lovely and peaceful, and friendly too. Lots of families and couples around, dining inside and outside. Food was delicious, would highly recommend it.

A lovely spot, good food and good service. But unfortunately loud pop music was piped out. I mentioned the discomfort this was causing my family, and the music didn't seem to suit the patrons or the environment. I was advised they would turn it down "a fraction". Can I suggest lower the level of music and use more lounge-style-cafe music... More

Food was good. We had pork belly, salmon and kids menu. All cooked well. Coffee was surprisingly good as well. The place itself made you feel comfy as well.
