Queen's Story

Queen's Café and Cake was first established in Hong Kong in 1952. Its founder Mischa Yu learned his culinary skills from White Russian master chef Kurilov in the 1920s, and was one of old Shanghai's best chefs of Russian cuisine. Mischa later moved to Hong Kong and started his own Russian restaurant and bakery which he named Queen’s, when it opened the same year Queen Elizabeth II was proclaimed.

Queen's nostalgic and warm décor remains to be one of its major draws, and the filming of Wong Ka Wai's famous film "Days Of Being Wild" at the restaurant has made it a popular attraction to movie fans and the public alike.

With its delicate bakery and confectionery creations as well as unique Russian cuisine, Queen's has become an iconic food institution beloved by generations of Hong Kongers over the years.
