I came here with 3 friends as we live locally and often walk in Primrose Hill. We were looking for somewhere for brunch and stopped off at The Queens. After ordering food, it took 30 minutes for 4 breakfasts to arrive. During this time I ordered a coffee which also took about 15 minutes to arrive. Once she had dropped off the last plate, the waitress asked us was everything ok. My friend commented that her food was very cold. As I had ordered the same thing the waitress turned to me, without apologising to my friend, and asked if mine was also cold. When I said yes, it was, she replied that hollandaise sauce is supposed to be cold. I asked if the toast also supposed to be cold. To which she replied it had been delivered that morning and was lightly toasted. But did not respond to either of our comments on the temperature of the food. The plate being cold did not help and I understand that sometimes hollandaise sauce may be served cold if that is the chefs preference, however I have eaten a lot of eggs Benedict in my time and I have never had one where all components of the meal were stone cold. I was surprised at the reaction of the waitress. Both other parties at our table commented on their food being adequate at best. Given the cost of the meal, we felt the entire experience was greatly overpriced. To add to that, one of our coffees was put down as more expensive then the other, for the same thing and we were overcharged by £2, although this was returned only after I questioned the waitress. I would not return here due to the unapologetic, unfriendly service more then anything.
