What’s Open Queen’s Birthday Public Holiday | 2014 Edition

By Alice Raitt
6th Jun 2014

God save the Queen… and maybe give us a three-day weekend while you're at it? Yes, please, thank you! This Queen's Birthday doesn't have to be all tea and crumpets (although that doesn't sound too shabby) with our list of what's open this Queen's Birthday public holiday.

Recover from that Sunday sesh with Monday brekkie that doesn't have a 'Mc' in front of it – you're better than that and you know it. Take your pick of eggs in the morning from a cool cafe, amazing Italian pizza for lunch, or grab some hair of the dog at one of our faves below. There is definitely something for everyone and yes, we promise it will be open!

Without further ado, here's our handy, but nowhere near exhaustive, list of restaurants and cafes open on the Queen's Birthday public holiday.
