WHETHER IT’S A CASUAL FIRST DATE, A LAID-BACK PARENT’S GETAWAY, OR LUNCH WITH THE FAMILY, THE RELAXING ATMOSPHERE AT TASTE OF THE COUNTRY MAKES THE PERFECT SETTING.
The award-winning café and retail outlet is located in the shopping village at Hunter Valley Gardens and is a must experience. Enjoy an outdoor table overlooking the village or eat inside while you take in the country style atmosphere. The quirky signs make for a fun read and you can buy your favourite to take home to the mancave.
It makes for a great place just to sit down for a coffee and a chat. Oh, and did I mention the hot chocolate is made from real chocolate that comes on a stick and dissolves in your mug (or in your mouth).
BUT FOR ME, NOTHING KICKS OFF A PERFECT DAY LIKE THEIR BIG BREAKFAST WITH BACON, EGGS, SAUSAGES, MUSHROOMS AND HOMEMADE THICK CUT BREAD.
Now I’m a little fussy when it comes to breakfast, but I can honestly say that at A Taste of Country the chef delivers every time. Last visit I forwent the big breakfast and instead opted for scrambled eggs and bacon on thick cut bread. This clever thinking allowed me to still have space for a plate of their scrumptious pancakes with banana and all the toppings. Sweet!
The missus went for the Chicken Burger with avocado and salad which she rated. I’m pretty sure the main reason she chose it was because she knows how much I hate avocado and wanted to make sure I didn’t end up eating most of her meal like I normally do!
Once you finish your meals, take the time to check out the local shops in the village, before heading over to the park for some more chill time, or try your hand at a game of aqua golf. Taste of The Country Café should be on top of your to do list for a leisurely day out. Thank us later.
