Mockingbird Café Hunter Valley

Delicious food & incredible service.

Mockingbird Café is the lovechild of husband-and-wife team James & Tess Borg – the creators of the multi award winning catering company Fennel & Co. Catering. Their passion for delicious food and incredible service have earned them a reputation throughout the wedding industry as the best caterers in Newcastle and The Hunter Valley.

The success of their Fennel & Co. Catering eventually led them back to their initial dream of owning their own café/restaurant – and in early 2018 Mockingbird Café Newcastle was hatched!

Tess & James aimed to create a café that was warm and welcoming, with creative menus and attentive service. Their cosy nest quickly became a favourite among locals and tourists. As good news travels, the reputation of Mockingbird made its way out to the Hunter Valley to the family run business that is Tatler Wines. The idea was hatched between the two families and this little birdy spread her wings and flew to Lovedale to build her second cosy nest in the heart of wine country.
