“The line out the door tells all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

If you want a great breakfast place this is it. There is always a line waiting to get in. Everything is good but would recommend the pancakes.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

Love this place! Great breakfast - especially the pancakes, though many love the French toast too. Highly recommend getting there at opening (8 AM) if you want a seat on the screened front porch.

“The most perfect breakfast in Rehoboth Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The service is always excellent, the food is wonderful. They must have the largest eggs, because a generous portion is described as 3 eggs, but it's more than a meal. French toast, coffee, bacon, all made to perfection. A trip to the Royal Treat is a must for my visits to the area. They've been around for 31 years, so they must be doing something right. Two big screen-in porches make the experience even more memorable.

“We All Scream for Royal Treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is by far my favorite ice cream place at the Delaware shore. Hershey ice cream is delicious with hard-to-find flavors like my very, very favorite peppermint stick and cappucino crunch. A kid's cone or kid's sundae is more than enough for this adult ice cream lover, and regular-sized portions are quite generous. Our group frequently order root beer floats which bubble over the top and are soooo yummy. Not to be missed is the hot fundge sundae - they line the glass dish with dark or milk hot fudge and the ice cream just settles in for you. Excellent! Given my lactose & cholesterol issues, I rarely splurge on such decadence, but when I do, Royal Treat is worth the wait! Sadly, they are open just for the summer season, but we look forward to each summer. There is also an icy cold jug of free water with cups around the side. Service is generally friendly and helpful. If you can snag a seat on the porch, it is great atmosphere, too. We've never made breakfast, but friends have liked it for years.

“First time in Rehoboth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great family atmosphere. Loved the porch. Ordered the creamed chip beef over potatoes. Potatoes were a little burnt but chipped beef was good.
