Queenies Lunchroom had been recommended to me by a few people who had said "it's very you". I can see why - the staff are friendly and relaxed, the food is wholesome and down home and the decor is vintage/retro/kitsch kiwiana - pacifica mixed with royal memorabilia. Yes, very me.
The food is a bit on the expensive side, but worth it. I had kedgeree, which was delicious.
I highly recommend their meringues, which are the best I've ever eaten and are good value for money for their size and presentation. Note that they are definitely meant for two.
