Simply AMAZING!

We decided to go here for breakfast one day over the Memorial Day holiday week. We arrived shortly after opening (opens 8am-11am for breakfast). We were given the option to dine inside or outside on the porch. We opted for the screened-in porch and were immediately seated. We were given the... read more

My wife and I start our day at the beach at Royal Treat. The food is great and the service and atmosphere is wonderful. My wife loves their frech toast and pancakes. You better get their early though or you'll be in a very long line waiting to be seated.In the afternoon we will get their root beer floats, mmmmm.... More

They have the best ice cream sundaes, and an amazing breakfast, this place has been a family favorite for years and is consistently good. Once you go to the Royal Treat you'll never want to go to another ice cream place in Rehoboth again. Try the french toast too!

Best Homemade Ice Cream I've ever had. Unfortunately, no Rocky Road...yet.

Royal Treat serves a mean breakfast, which is so delicious. They close for an hour between breakfast and ice cream, so make sure you get there in time. The owner is a nice guy, who makes sure everyone has large scoops. The ice cream is Hershey's, which I don't think alot of people know. Numerous places in Rehoboth serve it,... More

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
