FIT FOR A Queen
Queenies, the favourite haunt of the Freeman’s Bay set, is a Conscious Consumer café, and serving food and drinks to match.
Queenies Lunchroom – so named due to owner Allana Owen’s long-time fascination with a character of the same name from a Barbara Anderson novel – is a feast for the senses. Owen puts it best: “This is what it is to be a New Zealander as far as I’m concerned. It’s not Kiwiana, it’s not iconic – it’s simply organic.”
She refers to the building itself – built just four years ago, but in the style of buildings of our classic historic suburbs – and the décor: try deer antler chandeliers, antique birdcages, early portraits of the queen and Maori aristocracy, royalist memorabilia and water served in 600ml milk bottles.
