Description: 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!

As locals we are always looking for somewhere to go for breakfast. After visiting this restaurant on a weekly basis we have finally gotten around to putting on a review. Enzo's always offers some of the best food and service in the Hunter. The staff are always attentive and always accommodating. The latest change in the menu is nothing to... More

We arrived at around noon for an early lunch. The venue was already busy and we had to sit outside. The waitress was friendly and professional and we received our drinks and meals in a timely fashion despite the number of diners. The Tiger Prawn linguine and John Dory was lovely.

Cafe Enzo is a charming cafe which I have visited about 3 times. The salmon and pasta was fabulous! And the scones are really yummy!!! I do prefer going there in the winter with their open fireplace, it's so cozy!!! The coffee could be hotter! The staff are pretty friendly. Would recommend this restaurant for sure!!!

These converted Tuscan Farm Buildings house Cafe Enzo in the main house, James Hook cellar door in the barn and The Alpaca Barn in another former barn. Start with Tasting session at James Hook who produces some of the best wines in the valley and his port is as good as a Portuguese vintage that would cost you twice the... More

One of the best spots to get breakfast in the hunter valley. My girlfriend and I were seated right away. The staff were very friendly to us. We ordered two cappuccino's, bacon egg and cheddar roll and the big breakfast, all of which were very nice and filling. Would definitely recommend for breakfast when in the hunter valley and after...

Quite disappointed. Food was standard when we had been told it was great. Good for a standard lunch in a quirky venue. But don't expect to any culinary genius. Purely on food basis, I'm Sorry cafe Enzo, Not sure I'll be able to recommend you. Area Locals

We decided to try Enzo after hearing several glowing reviews. My husband and I went for breakfast and really enjoyed both our meals. I got the ham plate, and my husband got the big breakfast. I think I won, great combination if flavours on the ham plate. The big breakfast was good but nothing stood out flavour wise. The decor... More

Cafe Enzo is located in idealistic surroundings however the staff were not interested in serving us as they mentioned they had had a private function and were closing. This was on a week day at 3pm. The cafe is advertised as open till later than this and the road board was still up saying they were open. There was no... More

Right in the middle of the Hunter Valley, this is a beautiful, tranquil, effortlessly cool cafe. Wonderful breakfasts, fabulous Campos coffee, super-cool music, and right next to David Hook Wines. What more can you ask for!! Best in the area.
