Visiting Queen Creek, Arizona? Live in the Villages at Queen Creek? Hungry or in desperate need of coffee? Look no further than The Bistro! Conveniently located just south of downtown Queen Creek at the southeast corner of Old Ellsworth Road and Sierra Park Boulevard, The Bistro is an eclectic cafe offering delicious fare of flatbread pizzas, paninis, tasty grilled sandwiches and more. If you’re looking to get your caffeine fix on, The Bistro also provides a full-service coffee bar.
The Bistro’s coffee bar mixes up your typical lattes, cappuccinos, cold brews and teas. Including specialty espresso drinks like “the bistro latte” (espresso, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk and skim milk….oh my.) and “muldoon’s latte” (espresso, vanilla, white chocolate, cinnamon, skim milk…ditto on the “oh my” statement from earlier).
Now that we’ve covered The Bistro’s caffeine fix offerings let’s talk other drink offerings. You guessed it, this local QC cafe has what’s called “the bistro bar” which serves up adult beverages of white and red wines, sangria and cocktails. Don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging like that and not get into the mouth-watering ingredients of said drink list! Full disclosure, I haven’t yet tasted any drinks from the bistro bar. A travesty, I know. So going strictly off The Bistro’s menu, here are a few of their age-restricted drink items you’ll find.
Italian Prosecco & Pinot Grigio
Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand
House White (ask staff for further info)
Pinot Noir & Merlot vinted in California
Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec from Argentina
House Red (ask staff for further info)

the bistro cocktail – Vodka, Lavender Lemonade, Mint & Lemon (Ahh!)
the bloody bistro – Housemade Bloody Mary Mix, Vodka, Cucumber & Olives
the tropical cocktail – Tropical tea, Lemonade, Vodka
the rose cocktail – Vodka, Cranberry & Rose Lemonade
spanish soda – Red Wine & Coca Cola (Huh? I’m definitely intrigued!)
Kudos to you for waiting so patiently for the food. Mmm, the yummy food. If I had to describe The Bistro’s food overall in five words or less it would be; made fresh, distinctive, intriguing, tasty, more, please. Okay, seven words. Instead of me rambling on and listing the menu items, I invite you to give The Bistro a try and discover the goodness for yourself. Maybe first check out their Instagram page @thebistroqueencreekaz or facebook page @thebistroqc. The staff is consistently posting specials and tempting food pics. I’d be willing to bet your curiosity will be peaked to lead you down Old Ellsworth Road directly to this local eatery hot spot.
You can bet, I will be branching out on my next trip to The Bistro and perhaps will be giving the white wine sangria a try, versus my usual delicious iced vanilla breve latte. That being said, I may have to consider visiting in the evening for dinner, versus the morning for breakfast for this particular culinary outing. Ha!
