“Great Coffee”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

We needed a coffee at about 11.00am Sunday morning. Pulled into Muse as the sign said it was open and were the only people there. We were treated as if we were there for a full meal not just a coffe. It was served the way coffee should be served not just dumped in front of you. This is the 2nd or 3rd time we have been there just for coffee and have been served the same way evey time. Will certainly go back for a luncheon sometime soon.

“average cafe trades off superb restaurant's reputation”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

We went to muse cafe with high hopes after previously really enjoying dinner in the restaurant- we were disapointed. I know that they are not the same thing nor trying to be but the cafe was nothing special and with so many other great choices in the area I would not return.

It was a lovely day and a pleasant spot to sit looking over the vines out open bifold doors.

Our waitress asked after our New Years ("fine thanks, and you?") and then she proceeded to tell us....at length......eventually she took our order ("no thanks, I don't need to write it down") and was so busy remembering her New Year's I guess, that we never received our order of bread and dips.

Entree was ok- me- mushroom pasta- pleasant but not matching the description in the menu, my partner rissoles- ok, as you might make yourself.

Main was better- a nice, well cooked small piece of snapper with brocolini

It was ok but at $20/entree and $30/main from the team that bought us muse restaurants I would expect better.

The bread did not appear on the bill

“Absolutely amazing - highly recommend!”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

My husband and I have eaten at many of the restaurants in the Hunter Valley, but I have to say, that Muse is absolutely the most enjoyable of the lot! The service was exceptional, and the food amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this restaurant, and will definitely be back!
