Went to this shoppe after reading and hearing about how delicious it was. My friend and I both ordered 2 different lunch crepes ($10.00+ each). BOTH were dry, very little filling and very bland! Neither of us ate half of ours, such a disappointment! I would suggest sticking with the dessert crepes if you must go here but we both... More

I would have taken a photo but we ate things too fast. I had the Philly, which was terrific, then had the Nutella with ice cream. Amazing. Daughter had the strawberry shortcake so tasty. Will be coming back soon

My daughter and I are gluten free and we eat at this restaurant at least once a month. All of their crepes can be made gluten free. The indoor space is cheerful and clean, the staff is always friendly. The crepe toppings are always fresh. There is seating both inside (cafe-style) and on the sidewalk outdoors. As a side note,...

Always a treat to come to this special place ! When we have out of state company, it's a must that we take them here. Owners are very warm & friendly. The wife's mother also works there to help prepare crepes. Nice variety to choose from; breakfasts or lunches. Wide variety of teas & I think coffee. Chunk lie Monkees... More

I love their variety. Favorite crepe is the Omega one. Very fulfilling and doesn't make me feel yucky and bloated. Also tried the mango smoothie which tastes very fresh and natural. The only downside is that it's quite small and it can get crowded.

The Mother-Daughter duo (from Kyrgyzstan) offer an authenticity to their crepes that you'll rarely find anywhere. They not only own and operate the Royal Cafe but actually prepare the food. And have come up with an impressive menu of entrée and dessert crepes. Plus, they are really neat people to boot !

Just popped in the other day for a quick coffee at the end of a hot day! Staff told us that they ground their own mix of coffee beans - excellent americano and mocha! What's not to like!!!!

Went for the first time last week. My husband and I each got a different dinner crepe and split a dessert crepe. They were all delicious! We will definitely go back again soon.

The cafe is tucked away on the left as you head down Matthews Station Rd. It's a very casual, euro style, cafe and the crepes are made in front of you. This was our first trip to a creperie and we were all expecting a wide assortment of dessert style crepes. These were available but the Royal Cafe also offered... More
