Hunter Escape: scones at Enzo

Located in a quaint little village of sandstone buildings, Enzo boasts sundrenched outdoor seating replete with shade umbrellas and a cute water fountain. Their breakfast and lunch menus both sound enticing but we are here with only one thing in mind – scones!

After hearing both Betty and Karen sing the praises of Enzo’s scones, it quickly got added to our Hunter Valley “itinerary” (food stops form part of the travel plans, okay?). I had strategically left room for scones after lunch at Firestick Café, whilst Monsieur Poisson just can’t resist another cup of coffee when we spot that familiar Campos logo emblazoned on some of Enzo’s shade umbrellas.

His cafe latte comes with a few cute teddy bear biscuits on the side but it’s Devonshire tea for me as I enjoy my scones with a cuppa. And the scones! They’re served warm dusted with icing sugar and have a thin, soft crust. They feather-light without being cakey, yet have a nice, soft crumb. Plenty of whipped cream and berry jam are served alongside and we agree that these are the best scones we’ve ever had.

We didn’t get a chance to sample any of their breakfast or lunch fare during this trip unfortunately but, um, anyone fancy a drive up to the Hunter? Perhaps for some scones as well?

happy eating!


  1. I absolutely love Enzo's scones but their breakfast and desserts are also worth saving room for. Definitely need to try their lunch menu next too. Road trip to Hunter? I'm down with that :D

  2. Yum scones! I love the seats outside, especially that pretty cushioned bench by the door!

  3. We went to Cafe Enzo for breakfast on Sunday. The muesli was nice. How cute is the sunny courtyard and fountain.

  4. You're definitely not alone in that food forms part of your travel plans. I do food research on my destinations as throughly as I research accommodation! Good to hear you had such nice scones - nothing worse than a cakey or tough scone.

  5. sconessssssss!!! im craving it so badly right now. i definitely want to drive to the hunter again, esp to see the garden and for the smelly cheese :P

  6. Hey Karen, need to plan better and schedule in a breakfast or lunch visit to Enzo next time I'm up at the Hunter.

    Hey retrodaze, they have indoor seating too but their outdoors is just so pretty!

    Hey Anita, I really need to get myself back there to try their breakfast now!

    Hey Keely, or you plan your accommodation to be near good food places! =p

    Hey sugarpuffi, after multiple trips to the Hunter I actually haven't been to the gardens! *gasp*

    Hey Angie, coz it's not that far, really...

  7. All these post of the Hunter make me want to pronto! Love the tiny teddies with the coffee (there's a cafe in Redfern on the way to uni that does that too) and these scones look fab!

  8. Hey Phuoc, I feel like going back right now too. It's so quiet and relaxing up there and you feel like you have all the time in the world *sigh*
