Drove a friend almost forty miles to introduce her to it - only to find it closed and a sign in the window from November saying that they were moving. No indication of a relocation address. So disappointing.

So sorry for the inconvenience. We had a sign attached to the front porch with our new address. After being informed by other customers that there wasn't a sign as to where we moved. We checked it out, someone Removed it. Our new address is 1451 S. Memorial Dr.. More

Admittedly we did not get the full Cafè Royal experience. Occasionally my family passes through New Castle on day trips and my wife and I like to get coffee on our trips. We stumbled on Cafè Royal and are glad we did! With kids we were glad to see they had a drive-thru. The service was quick and the coffee... More

Only "BETTER" as in, visibility, for 1st time travelers, space, as for parking & # tables. It's the same EXCELLENT food !!! Their "homemade" soups, breads, & other foods, are the best. We travel a lot, and this is a favorite stop. Locally owned & operated, the owners assure it is all done right, and reasonable prices !!!

My husband loves chocolate coffee and he discovered black knight mocha, sublime dark chocolate. While I prefer black, no cream or sugar, I don't mind helping myself to a few sips of his decadent, sublime black knight. It is truly fabulous and I am glad we don't live closer or we'd be there several times a week. The food is... More

I came here on a Friday and had the tuna salad special. It was delicious and the employees behind the counter were very nice and friendly. Since I am new to the area and this is a small business, they patiently answered what I'm sure were many annoying questions I had about this and that in the community. I did... More

Cafe Royale has become an especially popular place for a reasonably-priced snack or lunch. Walk up to the counter and choose from one of their specials posted on the small chalkboard noticeable upon entering or one of numerous ones on the boards on the wall behind the counter. Place your order, get your drink, and go find a seat. A... More

Atmosphere is important to me while working on my laptop. The flavored drinks are all top-notch. Food is great also. The one thing I did not like at all is there coffee. Very bitter even with sweetener in it. I had to put 3 sweeteners to tolerate it. That's why I recommend only their flavored coffees, which come in hot... More
