Came here for breakfast and it was a pleasant surprise. A small menu but everything we ordered was delicious and cooked to perfection The service was top notch. The coffee is also great. Well worth a visit, you won't be disappointed. They certainly have the Mojo!!!!

We had a deli picinic from Mojos today and it was just fantastic. Everything in the picinic was delicious you had everything you needed down to the plastic glasses wooden knife and fork and it was all wrapped and labeled separately. It was like a work of art in a nice looking wooden box we didnt want to open it.... More

Had brunch here on the weekend. The menu wasn't extensive but had all the favourites. The eggs were cooked perfectly and their "mojo" touches made the food extra tasty. They could do with updating their outdoor furniture but I guess it just adds to the charm of the café. Well worth a visit.

Baramundi to die for. Nice intimate restaurant with exceptional food and fantastic service. Would hazard to say one of the best in the HV. Adam (chef) is shy type but college training base shines through to his outstanding dishes.

Four ladies out for the night, lots of laughter and fabulous food, we were loud and raucous, they didn't mind, it's rare that everyone thinks the food is fabulous.

What a great breakfast stop. The corn fritters are to die for. This is a small team and service when there are a few people seems slow but the coffee and food are so good it will nicely round out your trip to the hunter and is worth the wait. Relax in the garden and enjoy a delightful breakfast berore... More

We hadn't been to Mojos for almost 5 years and it was as good this time as it was then. The food and service were very good. Nice surroundings, easy to park and open when other restaurants in the area aren't. Would thoroughly recommend if you are going to the Lovedale area of the Hunter Valley - especially mid-week.

While the food was tasty and well cooked the menu was dated circa mid 90s, as is the decor and music selection! Only 2 tables for a Saturday night but wait for food was lengthy. Serving size generous. Wine selection limited, many on list not available.

The food here is seriously delicious, amazing risotto and dessert was sensational. We seemed to wait forever for our entrees though & the gap in between serving the other courses was too long. There was a lack of vegetarian options on the menu which really does need addressing. In saying that the chef gladly offered to make me this beautiful... More
