Great Place, Ridiculous Lines for Breakfast

We love this place for breakfast...but we could NEVER get in due to the long lines...even on a weekday! We have enjoyed the "down home" fare for breakfast at Royal Treat, but standing in line for 30 minutes is not worth it.

Nothing fancy. Just your basic breakfast stuff, done well . . . and a lot of it. Leaves you feeling like a hog on the beach. (Just the way I like it).

My husband and I always make this our breakfast destination when we are in Rehoboth. The food is fresh and good. The service is friendly and fast. So enjoyable to sit on the front porch in the morning to eat breakfast. Very relaxed atmosphere. They serve breakfast favorites like eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, toast....great coffee. We will continue to go... More

Usually stop once or twice during our time in Rehoboth Beach. They have great Ice Cream in the evenings. Breakfast in the AM is good also.

What kind of "ice cream parlor" doesn't have sprinkles? Not to mention that there is nothing special about Hershey's ice cream. The place is extremely overrated if you ask me. We much preferred the 100 flavor place for ice cream.

After reading everyone's reviews, we decided to take the time for one breakfast out during our stay at the Beach View Motel next door. We got in early, so we didn't have a wait. We sat in the walkway between the front part of the restaurant and the back room. The floor was stable and our table kept rocking and... More

Royal Treat was located right next to our hotel so we knew we wanted to try it out. We were lucky one morning and were able to walk right in as we didn't have a preference to sit on the porch; the next morning the line was backed up to the sidewalk, so we were glad we went when we... More

Asked for eggs over medium, they were over easy. Asked for crisp home fries, they were burned black. Had to ask twice for butter and finally got butter so cold it wouldn't melt on the French toast. A server (not ours) came over to fill our water glasses and was intercepted by another server (again, not ours) and she told... More

Although there was a line to get in at breakfast time (opens at 8:00 a.m. - would recommend going very close to 8 or a little before!), the food was very good, and the servers were able to keep up with the crazy pace. The atmosphere was just ok, but hey, it's breakfast!
