Queen Street Café is a great place to enjoy a good variety of sandwiches, breakfast dishes and café-style dishes. In addition to the dishes on their menu, they also have specials listed on the boards around the café. The name is a misnomer because it is not located on Queen Street. Instead it is situated on Elizabeth Street in Croydon.

A dish that was offered as a special during our visit, their Poached Eggs with Spanish Chorizo, Spicy Tomato Compote, Rocket and Dark Rye Bread had soft poached eggs with gooey yolks contrasted wonderfully by the toasted rye bread. The smoky taste of the chorizo complemented the eggs well with a delicious tangy flavour provided by the tomato compote.

Presented in a form of an open sandwich, the chicken in their Chargrilled Chicken with Pesto, Provolone, Aioli, Avocado, Rocket and Tomato on Turkish was cooked just right with the pesto really bringing out its flavour. The rocket and tomato partnered well with the chicken with the aioli and avocado tying everything together.

For those who prefer a more "traditional" sandwich, their Crispy Bacon with Tomato, Provolone, Relish, Aioli and Rocket on Turkish is a good choice. The bacon was cooked to the degree of crispiness that we liked with the creamy taste of the provolone and aioli helping to balance out the smoky taste of the bacon.

The café had a cosy, rustic feel with a decent amount of seating available though they fill up quickly during the peak lunch hour. A large number of parking lots are available on the streets close to where the café is located.

Did you ask about the name? I wondered if it was in Brisbane.
