Queen & Rook Game Cafe is now open at 607 S. 2nd Street at the site of the former Hikaru restaurant. We have a game library of more than 1,000 new and vintage board games, a retail section, small plates, local drafts and a full liquor license.

In terms of food, Queen & Rook Game Cafe will offer a healthier, more future-oriented, mainly plant-based menu. They will serve the small plates and appetizers people love to snack like nachos, mozzarella sticks, and french fries; but will also offer vegan sliders, a vegan cheese plate, deluxe salads, and many gluten-free options.

Jeannie Wong, a founder and a vegetarian for more than 25 years said, “The future is happening now with meat alternatives and healthier, less environmentally damaging food and drink. We think people want something really delicious without having to feel bad about what or where they eat. It’s about a commitment to have plant-based options, local sourcing, allergen-friendly foods, globally-inspired offerings, and foods with a smaller carbon footprint.”

Queen & Rook Game Cafe is open 7 days a week from 11am to Midnight Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Weekend brunch plans are in the works as well, plus a few surprises in the fall.
