Always going that extra mile for extraordinary flavours
If you’ve ever asked the question ‘where can I get a quality cup of coffee in the Hunter Valley?’ there is one name that would have surely been dropped pretty quick, and that's Café Enzo.
Since 1996 this enchanting sandstone building has been delivering the goods, not only with the coffee beans but with an incredible menu that seems to get better on every visit.
Open for breakfast, lunch and even those necessary in between eating times, Café Enzo ticks every box when it comes to looking for that quintessential Hunter Valley dining experience. The beautifully manicured outdoor dining area is perfect for soaking up the lunchtime sun, inside is the larger than life open fire that you’ll need in the cooler months and then there’s the menu.
For the uninitiated, you’ll find Café Enzo nestled within the gorgeous Peppers Creek Village on Broke Rd. Established by Melissa Blanch way back in 96, Melissa, together with her business partner of 17 years, Pug (below), have continually evolved and pushed the business to become the iconic dining experience that it is today.
Since coming into the business Pug and the team have made it all about quality and the produce, just ask Pug and he'll be more than happy to tell you where your prawns, fish and pork all come from, and why it's so important to go that extra mile and source Aussie only produce. The result, extraordinary flavours, order the Tasmanian Smoked Salmon with Truffle Green Peas or the Linguini with Tiger Prawns and you’ll understand what we're talking about.
Extensive and flavoursome there’s no theme as such just a menu that Pug himself loves to deliver, and with more than 30 years of experience in the food industry, it’s a beautiful representation of his passion for all things locally grown and Australian sourced. Small warning, the meals aren’t for the faint hearted, but be sure to leave some room for that Tasting Plate, the duck liver pate is to die for.
Once you're done with eating make sure spend some time checking out the collective of businesses that make up the Peppers Creek Village. From wine tasting at Comyn's & Co and David Hook Wines, to shopping at Pukara Estate Providore Store and the Australian Alpaca Barn, a visit to Cafe Enzo will surely be on your every visit to the Hunter Valley.
