And the Winner is Oscar’s – what a strange name for a restaurant! Situated on the edge of the main lawn area at the Hunter Valley Gardens Shopping Village, the cafe/restaurant pulls in the crowds. More of a self-serve cafe than a sit and be served restaurant, the main feature of the place is the extensive outdoor seating area that’s more than double the inside area. One of several cafes serving scones, that are all within ear shot of each other, Oscar’s pumps out the creamy and fluffy variety. However, it seems you can’t excel at everything and the spray shot of can cream and average jam proves this. Go for the lively atmosphere.
Tea: A standard selection of T2 tea bags served in a lovely teapot.
Overall: Good location and buzzy vibe.
