Queen Street Cafe is another one of my old favourite brunch spots that I used to go to nearly every weekend when I lived in the north western suburbs.
My weak mocha had a good balance of coffee and chocolate. The milk was nicely steamed and there was a beautiful layer of rich smooth creamy froth on top.
My freshly squeezed pineapple and mint juice tasted beautiful but really needed ice to make it cold and more refreshing especially since I was eating a piping hot meal.
I ordered the shakshouka. Eggs baked in a spicy tomato sauce with Spanish chorizo, thick brown bread toast, rocket, red onion and parmesan on top.
Now this is how you make shakshouka! The tomato sauce was well balanced, not too thick and not too watery, rich and deliciously spicy and the chorizo added a beautiful unique smokiness to the sauce. The eggs were also baked perfectly just the way I like it. Slightly set whites with oozing golden egg yolks. I could not stop mopping up the delicious sauce and eggs with my toast and the rocket and red onion just added lovely greenery and freshness to the dish.
It was so satisfying and so full of flavour. Such a simple dish yet so tasty!
Queen Street Cafe is still as good as it was back then the first time I discovered them. I am so glad that nothing has changed. They are still consistently dishing out the great delicious food I remember them for. It sucks that I don’t get to come here as often anymore and I’m now wishing I hadn’t moved away from the area because it is such an amazing little cafe and also because Red Door Bakery is 3 doors down.
