Breakfast at Queenies & Crumpets with Lemon Curd & Mascapone


I had breakfast at Queenies Lunchroom in Freemans Bay last week with Sasa, Sasasunakku and Sue, Couscous & Consciousness, it was to be a brain storming session for the conference in November but also turned out to be a bit of a farewell breakfast with Sue since she has decided to move to Nelson. Sue and her partner have been our neighbours for the past few months, literally next door and we will miss having them around but look forward to visiting them in Nelson particularly since I have never been before.

Queenies is a funky little cafe with a colourful mural painting covering one wall. They have a small but varied menu but it was the crumpets served with lemon curd, Mascapone and blueberries that caught my eye. And they were perfect, so much so I had to make my own lemon curd this week just so I could recreate the experience. It’s a nice decadent breakfast but a quick one to put together if you have your own lemon curd already or pick up a store bought one. I didn’t use blueberries as they aren’t in season but once berries are back I will be eating it again with berries.

No recipe for it as you see it but here is a Lemon Curd recipe if you want one.

  4. I really enjoyed Queenies when I was there for lunch on the weekend, too many things to choose from but crumpets with lemon curd would’ve been great, too. In fact I’ll have to try doing this soon… I love lemon curd!

    (Can’t wait for NZFBC by the way)
