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!

Great Breakfast

Had a great Mother's Day breakfast. Food was excellent as was the location. The restaurant has very good service and they also served a very good coffee. Certainly worth a try if in the Hunter Valley.

Dropped in here for a light lunch and as usual were not disappointed.We have visited a number of times before. Lovely stone building with a courtyard and fountain where you can eat outside on a nice day.Internally there is a large wood fire for those cold or wet days that happen. We opted for the salads which were quite large,fresh... More

Cafe Enzo provided an excellent venue for relaxed dining while touring the Hunter vineyards with the added comfort of a warming wood fire. Menu was extensive and meals selected were very generous. Highly recommended.

Just stopped in because it was next to a celler door I was visiting - expected to just have an expresso. I was tempted by the foie gras /salumi combo appetiser and I was not disappointed. The salumi's were very tasty and the foie gras was fantastic. It came with a red berry jam and some local feta like cheese,... More

The friendly staff managed to fit us in on a busy Sunday and we were very thankful after enjoying giant campos coffees and sensational eggs benny; a perfect way to end the weekend.

Cafe Enzo is tucked away in a lovely courtyard at Peppers Creek. We sat out under the umbrellas and enjoyed the sun. Service was good and friendly, food just delicious. Very relaxing.

The Hunter has many great fine food restaurants, but very few good cafes. However, after my 2nd time to Cafe Enzo I've found the standout cafe for both a creative breakfast (especially the board options ... see the many photos from other reviews) & fab lunch options. This trip was for lunch with the linguini with tiger prawns (w/ fresh... More

Arrived at 10 past 11 on a Sunday to be advised breakfast was finished, only to sit and eat some dull in between menu cheese and toast to watch others being served eggs until midday. Alannis morrisette was blaring far too loud, presumably for the enjoyment of the owner but no-one else. We were places on a sofa and had... More

A lovely setting, inside and out, with the great food and coffee making this a very enjoyable experience. Friendly staff and service time was spot on. The secret is out though, this is a popular venue so be sure to book.

A great lunch spot! We went a couple of times, the linguini (vego or prawn) was especially good, as was the coffee. Might be worth making a reservation as we got put out near the kitchen which wasn't at all bad, just not as nice as in the main dining room
