This resturant is only open for breakfast and then offers ice cream until 10PM. Only accepts cash/traveler's checks. Very attentive service. Breakfast on the front porch was not as hot (climate) as expected. Food was good - it has a long-standing reputation for good breakfasts. Always a crowd; get there early if you have a large party.

Stayed for 2 nights/3 days in the rehoboth beach area and visited this place 3 times. Twice for breakfast and once for ice cream. The food is terrific. The italian french toast is great. You have 2 choices with sausage: links or patties (I got the patties and they're great). Bacon is nice & crispy with no fat. The only... More

The ice cream is absolutely delicious, and the scoops are HUGE! I had the banana split, which was enormous and it was definitely worth the money. It came with 3 scoops of ice cream, your choice, a whole banana, and your choice of 3 toppings, and whipped cream and a cherry. I definitely recommend the cappuccino chip ice cream. Besides... More

We had a nice breakfast here; it's cute and the food is plentiful and well cooked. The staff was lovely and we enjoyed the setting. Keep in mind though, it's CASH ONLY.

We love the Royal Treat. While there is no shortage of ice cream on the boardwalk the Royal Treat is just that. Take a step back to the days of Ice cream parlors and sit on the porch and enjoy the Hot Fudge Sundae!

Reminds me of an old time ice cream parlor. Nowhere else at the beach can you get such good ice cream and service for a fair price. MUCH better than an ice cream cone on the boardwalk!

Without a doubt the best ice cream in Rehoboth. The service is great, the restaurant is impeccably clean and the ice cream sundaes are to good to put into words. What I thought was great, was that the tip jar is tucked away behind the counter, when I asked kids behind the counter about it being out of the way... More

This is a special place and there is a reasons for a line, though it moves fast. We went here for ice cream several nights. The ice cream was delicious as was the old school atmosphere and service. They have a child size cone, which was perfect for us as we have a little one and she can never finish... More
