Queens is a beautiful and romantic brunch spot that’s especially perfect for dates.

We didn’t try any of the cocktails as we weren’t feelin’ it at 9 in the morning, but the Cappuccino and Latte were fantastic, and even came with adorable little soft serve cups.

We both got the Queens Breakfast, which came with eggs, bacon, chorizo, lemon ricotta pancakes, and potatoes.

The bacon and chorizo were out of this world, and the lemon ricotta pancakes were amaze.

Be sure to ask for hot sauce as well – they brought out a locally-made one called Ouchie Mama from Crystal’s Can Co, and it was so dang good.
