“Cafe Enzo” is positioned in a collection of shops in a village-like setting with a country style ambience and an enchanting courtyard being established in 1996.

  The cafe offers excellent coffee, amazing food and friendly, professional staff making it a must do when visiting the Hunter Valley. The meals are not cheap but are definitely delicious especially because the setting is peaceful and relaxing and  a walk down to the large pond will complete your day.

  Set in the Tuscan inspired Peppers Creek Village in the heart of the Hunter Valley, after your meal you can wine taste in the cellar door adjacent or browse through the Alpaca shop with its beautiful garments or pick up some gifts in the homewares shop which stocks many unusual items and canvasses for styling your home.

  Definitely a place to visit, unwind and enjoy something delicious from their menu, all of which is homemade and full of locally grown produce.

  We love all food but really fancied the fish and chips on their menu so ordered that. WOW!, we can really rate it up there the best. The rest of their meals looked amazing as well all fresh and yum!

  Cafe Enzo is a registered COVID Safe Business which is open 7 days although prebooking is a must at this popular venue.

Breakfast Sittings: 8am, 9am and 10am (1.5 hours allocated to each sitting)

  Lunch Sittings: 12pm, 1pm and 2pm (2 hours allocated to each sitting under current Covid rules)

  We decided to go out for lunch, then dessert at “Sabor in the Hunter Dessert Bar”, which we had driven past several times in the last few weeks.    Having taken so long to organise ourselves, it was a choice of lunch OR skip lunch and go straight to dessert and coffee!  Soooo dessert for lunch it was!

  Excitement mounted  as we drove to the venue as we had fantasized about this outing for weeks! On arrival we hoped they would have a table for us as we hadn’t booked but with Covid-19 there is always the chance that they may not have the capacity to accommodate you, so one is advised to book ahead for everything.

  Luck was on our side, they did have a table right next to the huge wall of window which looks out across the paddocks to the wonderful mountain range beyond with the blue sky pushing the white puffy clouds across the vista, it was just like an enormous painting.

  Choice was vast and quite difficult. The menu is lengthy and the cakes in the cabinet just don’t make it any easier to make your decision. I opted for a pecan nut tart and a cappucino. Michael chose the fruity waffles with homemade ice-cream and a caramel shake while our daughter finally decided to wait the extra 20 minutes for the chocolate mousse and ice-cream. Very decedent but fantastic choices all around. 

  Wow!!!!! Amazing desserts, rich, fresh and unique, and if you don’t want a coffee, they also come with wines – everyone is happy. While the music played  quietly in the background, we thoroughly enjoyed our desserts and the spectacular views  with the cows dawdled about in the paddocks below.

  “Sabor” is open Friday to Sunday and well worth the trip.
