Great for coffee or lunch, I have been here on 2 seperate occasions and loved both times. It is a great place to relax when in the hunter and the setting is lovely.

Having planned to stop for lunch, we arrived to find no body sitting at tables, no staff visible, no menu anywhere and just a solitary chalkboard advertising banana bread. Was the place open? It was difficult to tell at 12.30!

Hi Sue, thanks for providing feedback, as you would have seen our cafe is in a beautiful setting with tables inside and out overlooking bushland and water, perhaps your wait person was outside at the time of your visit - we were certainly open:-)
Our menu is located at the service counter and is handed out as we welcome our customers to ensure we provide the service (either retail or food service) each individual customer requires. What a shame we were not able to show you some of our Hunter Valley hospitality and regional food - we hope you enjoyed your Hunter Valley experience..

Just very average - but the main reason I will never go back and why I would steer everyone else away is that they do not use free range eggs. For a cafe that lauds its quality regional produce, in a region that is known for food, it just amazes me that they do not care about the welfare of their animals.

Very disappointed with our visit here this time. No the variety that was once available and the staff seem a bit disinterested in you having a good experience. It all seemed a bit tired

A bit like a deli with lots of nice local produce. Loads to choose from, nice ladiesnto help you, great cheeses and gourmet food, all perfect accompaniments for the great wine down the road
