I can’t believe it! After 31 years the Espresso Royale café is closed. There are no signs explaining what happened. This was a great place and there was always a line of people buying coffee. It was warm, spacious and just smelled downright good. This...More

The atmosphere is great here; they have board games and cool local artwork. The coffee is a little pricey, but no more so than Starbucks or Caribou, and is very good.

That's about it. What else do you need? I worked at the UMN eastbank campus and visited this place regularly. The staff is consistent, the wifi reliable, the coffee good and it's a quiet and comfortable place to work or meet.

I used to sit here for hours writing short stories and plays and screenplays swilling coffee and scoping out the honeys during my college days of yore. I always return older and not so wiser and I still love the coffee.
