Coffee doesn't just come black or white anymore

Whether you like your coffee hot, cold, sweet, black, frozen or bubbly, Queen of Pops has the answer to all your caffeine cravings.

This new hole-in-the-wall café on the corner of Bayview Terrace and Drane Street in Clayfield is from the team behind Dandelion & Driftwood, who decided their luscious coffee popsicles, ice creams made from real espresso coffee, needed a home of their own.

You can pick up coffee any way you like from the adorable sidewalk café (which looks as cute as sounds) and even in a few ways you've probably never heard of before.

There's the usual long blacks, cappuccinos and lattes, in sizes of prince, queen or king (sticking to the theme), but you can also get nitro cold brew. The trend that's taking the coffee world by storm, nitro coffee is treated with nitrogen under high pressure to create coffee that is cold, bubbly and almost fruity, and comes on tap like beer. Not a coffee lover? Try the nitro cold brew tea, a blend of cherry, hibiscus, rosehip and blackberry which is sugar free but tastes curiously sweet.

And while it might not sound appealing right now, their frozen coffee popsicles will make this summer buzz. Having been perfected over months of recipe testing, the popsicles come in flavours of long black, cappuccino, mocha and chai latte and are a frozen kick on a stick.

Sweet treats to pair with your coffee of choice included cupcakes and cookies, while hunger busters include toasted sandwiches and bagels that can be eaten in the outdoor seating or taken away. Kids will love the gingerbread 'popsicles' and the Pop Soda – not to mention the mixed lolly 'jewels.'

Queen of Pops is open Monday to Friday from 6.30am-4pm and Saturday from 7am-12pm.

I don't like traditional coffee, but this sounds like something that might be nice.

What an ingenious idea! This is great for hot summer days when you want your caffeine fix but don't want a hot drink. Never heard of the nitro brew before but am checking it out.
