Called in yesterday for a lazy lunch after a drive up the Hunter. Great food, inexpensive, great service. Same applied to the drinks. Would highly recommend for a lunch. Cannot comment yet, on dinner. A good experience though.

The food is fairly average, nothing too special. The service unfortunately also follows the same trend. Convenient if you are staying at the Pokolbin village, but I wouldn't make a special trip.

My mum and I stopped here for afternoon tea. We had seen so many places advertised in the Hunter Valley with the beautiful desserts and afternoon teas. This is NOT one of them. The waitress was disinterested in serving us. She didn't even both to get a menu for us to read. She just stated that there was carrot cake or a lime tart. We asked about devonshire teas and she said that it was only in the mornings or until they ran out of scones. We thought this to be strange as chefs were standing in the kitchen but none of them could make a scone. We ordered the cakes and when they came out we were very disappointed. The cakes were tiny and the cream that came with it was out of a can. We could not believe this was the standard of the Hunter Valley. We have had better cakes at McCafe for half the price. The staff were so disinterested in the customers. They didn't even come to give us the bill. I had to go and ask where to pay. The tables around us were not cleared from previous diners. It was a terrible place with terrible service. There are so many wonderful places in the Hunter Valley. Don't waste your time and money on this one.

The food once we got it was great, getting it was the issue. All of the staff seemed bored and did not want to serve anyone.

Sat and ordered drinks - 20 minutes later they arrived. Ordering our meals immediately saw another 40 minutes disappear before we saw food. Was there follow up for more drinks in that time - NO.

Then paying for the meal, that was another experience that we will not do again.

This is a shame as this cafe is in prime position within the village close to several wineries and lots of visitors like us. If you had top notch service both in front and behind you would have a goldmine.

It's called italian but there is not much italian about it. Poached eggs for breakfast were both hard not soft . My friend had an omelette which was like rubber, overcooked. Food is bland. Would not recommend for breakfast.
