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?
