At Queenside in Dulwich Hill, the location is good, for despite being on New Canterbury Road, it is away from the strip of cafes and restaurants and thus quieter and easier to find somewhere to park.
The cafe is buzzing with customers and the vibe is fun at friendly. It’s still doing takeaway and also selling groceries despite the easing of restrictions across NSW, but we are happy to grab our food to go. Service is fast and staff are lovely.
Their menu is extremely reasonably priced and super creative with interesting options. We love that all the menu options are named after the strange Covid19 situation we all find ourselves in, like Fiona The Isolated Queen (avo & feta on toast) with sweet potato sourdough with smashed avocado, beetroot hummus, creamed feta, pickles, radishes, garden herbs and yuzu sesame seeds for only $10. There’s also The ‘We’ll Fiesta After This Is All Over’ burrito with mexican spiced brown rice and beans, red pepper salsa, avocado and coriander for $14. That’s just to name a few. They also have granola, toasties and smaller snacks too.
Our friend Pete ordered the Okonomiyaki waffles!
We found it hard to decide since there were so many appealing options. But it was a cold day and I had my heart set on porridge which sounded amazing, and it was. The Smurfo’s Komodo Slayer was a bowl of warm chai spiced rolled oats porridge, made with oat milk (dairy free), poached pears and rhubarb, bee pollen and topped with nuts and granola for $14.50. Super smooth and incredibly tasty.
Kurt opted for the Wurst. Year. Ever, a soft warm bun filled with Scrambled eggs, cheese and weisswurst sausage, Drunken Sailor’s bourbon onion relish and shallots for $14.50. A tasty and well seasoned filling brekkie choice.
The cafe alternates the coffee weekly, using their house blend, Coffee Supreme, Fat Poppy as well as Grace & Taylor. On our visit, the bean was Coffee Supreme. A good blend and perfect as a latte.
A top cafe that we’ll be sure to return to.
