Some things just pair well, whether it’s bread and butter or oysters and champagne, one such classic is café fare with a thriving garden atmosphere. The Verandah Café at Poppy’s Home and Garden can be found South of Newcastle on Oakdale Road, where weathered railings frame a sheltered deck area overlooking a courtyard rich with luscious saplings, shapely hedges and marble statues. Interior furnishings are kept bright, matching the light beaming in from wall to wall windows, resulting in a peaceful backyard ambience. Herbs and greens from the garden show up in tempting choices like quinoa and coconut crusted barramundi, with baked kipfler potato, blanched green beans, dill salad and avocado tomato salsa, on a menu subtly offering a partnering wine, in this case Kakpuka Sauvignon Blanc.
