“Outstanding venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

A very nice location to relax over a leisurely breakfast. Great tasting coffee and an interesting menu. A bit fancy, so if you have plain eaters they may find ordering a little difficult. Mind you our waitstaff were more than happy to accommodate a modified menu item. The grilled haloumi, avocado, mushrooms and tomato was great. Well worth stopping!

“Breakfast, Lunch or just a break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

I'm a local living in Cessnock I have eaten at The Deck Café a few times since it opened last year. I have found the atmosphere to be very friendly, the service excellent by the staff. Meals were well presented, filling and yummy and took no time in getting to the table. The last time I was there had the best chai latte, I didn't want it to end. I have no hesitation in recommending the Deck café to my friends please come and visit, you wont be disappointed.

“What a Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

on a recent trip to the Hunter Valley, we were taken to a marvelous place called Gartlemann's Winery. Wonderful wines, friendly amazing people and the attached The Deck cafe. We returned the next day, the atmosphere was compelling and the food was wonderful. Highly recommended.

“Great Mezze”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

We just wanted a small meal so the mezze plate was a great share plate. There was not enough bread for all that was on the plate but that is the only criticism. It had a wonderful selection of foods that complemented each other. Will eat here again
