Nestled in the heart of Little Italy, San Diego, you will find this historic Victorian house that was built in 1905. Queenstown Public House isn’t the average restaurant you would find in “Little Italy,” but is actually a New Zealand style of restaurant. It’s corner location with NZ flags and usual long lines of patrons waiting for a table, makes it easy to spot. It is open for lunch and dinner, but most importantly, brunch on Saturday and Sunday’s. The dog friendly, outdoor patio, takes up most of the restaurant as it is located in the front and sides of the house. If you have a pup, be sure to bring them as they will love this location as well. Upon arrival, you can stop for treats at the hostess stand or wait to be greeted at your table as they deliver special treats to your four legged fur child.
They even have their own house dog – Clark the Frenchie. Be sure to check out his own Instagram!
Once you take seat, take a look around and you will be transported into a greenhouse. I love what they have done with the design of QueenstownPH – it is colorful and inviting with windows made of doors, old rocking chairs, market lights, watering cans filled with plants, upside down hanging tulips from the ceilings, colanders for lights, and a rustic canoe on the wall of the inside bar!
