We were on our way to Starbucks when we saw this adorable restaurant. It has been raining so they weren't serving outside. However when the owner saw that we had our little dog with us he immediately set us up on the patio. He was so gracious! The menu was amazing and it took a long time to narrow our choices. My daughter had Huevos Rancheros and I had ham and eggs. My potatoes were crisp and my eggs perfect. Hers included beautiful fresh tomatoes and green onions, and had just the right amount of spice. They also brought us homemade raspberry preserves and yummy green salsa.

Great menu. Waffles are on point. Salmon scramble had very good portions of salmon. Burgers and fries were old fashioned and delicious. REAL maple syrup! Thick sourdough toast! Very sunny, big windows! Outside seating available. Nostalgic decor with classic photos and advertisements. Fun place.

Cool place with antiques from 50s. Nice little foyer for waiting. I ordered huevos rancheros, bene on fire. Bene on fire was good. The house potatoes are nice and well toasted. The huevos were very tomatoey and runny. Didn't quite like it. I am used to Mexican style huevos with beans and scrambled eggs on the tortilla so this didn't match my expectations. The service was alright.

Delightful decor for a hustle of a morning! This place is the breakfast spot in town. The line is worth it. Plan to wait 30 minutes. Come with a group of 8 or just by yourself!I tried their famous scone, served with a lemon sauce. Perfectly crumbly, and totally messy. I also got their homemade granola with soy milk and let it sit to soak up the soy and get soft. Delicious. Matt got a breakfast omelet with cheddar, bacon and avocado.Real maple syrup is on the tables along with salsas. Those details matter! Free coffee refills and the servers are on it, never had a cold cup.Credit cards accepted here. The decor feels like you stepped through a time machine. They even have a little display full of antique items when you walk in - juke box, old cameras and cooking ware.

First time here met up with our friends and they had been here in the past. Seems that the place was quite popular but less expensive back then. I had looked online so I knew what to expect from the menu. The eggs Benedict were alright. My muffins were pretty hard underneath the hollandaise sauce. I think the one pancake I ordered could have been fluffier. Chicken and waffles were not all that great. Batter on chicken was falling off the chicken,o so it wasn't a hit. But maybe we will try the place again.

It was okay. The raspberry table jam was excellent and the latte was beautiful. The service was blah. Everyone seems to be wearing whatever street clothes they want so it's hard to tell who works there. Which is a bit alarming when someone comes to take your bill and payment, but you're not sure if it's an employee or someone you should be running after. Most of the staff is a bit slow in comparison to a traditional diner. Some seem to just mosey along without a sense of urgency to seat you or check on tables frequently. The food was okay, too greasy to finish, but other people seemed to enjoy it.

Royal Cafe has consistently good food, service and a clean yet retro decor. The service is always spot on, it is like the can see the level in my coffee cup. Good homemade sausage, no nitrates. Love their homemade salsa. Small parking lot, which can be challenging but personally the food and service are worth it. I try to avoid this place on the weekends due to the crowds, though they move fairly fast.

Great place for breakfast! It can get pretty busy, because their food is great! The oatmeal is good as well as the eggs Benedict. The decor is fun - it’s almost a must-see place... Sometimes, it’s too cold and drafty inside though. And there can be quite a long wait on weekends.

Great place for breakfast/brunch. You have to try the scone with lemon curd, available as a toast alternative with many of the breakfast entrees.
