Best cafe Polinas Cafe in hunter-valley for 2016

Balanced coffee in a rustic setting. Also had a freshly made breakfast tart which was awesome. Would recommend this place!

Lovely spot after a hard day at work. Wish we'd gotten there earlier to enjoy it more. The owner is lovely.

service and atmosphere ok however coffee was not good. milk was stretched ok but crema was brackish.

Best cafe Little Black Pony Espresso in hunter-valley for 2016

Neat little place serving a Melbourne brand. Flat white was good quality.

Located in a business area but makes you feel relaxed and in a coffee mood. Delicious full bodied coffee.

Best cafe Munkeeskins Café in hunter-valley for 2016

Best cafe Worn Out Wares in hunter-valley for 2016

Good cappuccino and piccolo. Using Peaberry beans. Atmosphere and staff a little quirky. Only bad thing is set up. You have to order at the rear of the store, then walk back to the front to pay and then walk back to the rear to pick up order. 😩

Best cafe Grinders Espresso Bar & Flowers in hunter-valley for 2016

Great atmosphere, lovely coffee that has a smooth finish and complex flavour and my husbands long black was perfect with great creme. Certainly a fresh vibe for Cessnock. Busy for a reason. Highly recommend.

Not good. tastes like McDonald's coffee. served in a t/away cup even though we dined in. way too hot.

coffee bitter, poached eggs were hard, service was good and quick. Place was busy but disappointing just the same.
