The Royal Street Cafe is one I would recommend for anybody who is looking for a good meal at a good price. We always enjoy coming here. The food is not fancy or gourmet, just hearty. The staff is friendly and efficient. Among other reasons we enjoy this place is that it has a homey atmosphere. You don't feel like... More

Wish I could rate this place higher, but I can't. First let me say the service and friendliness is tops, it's the best. I also like the atmosphere, just laid back! However as much as I thought the breakfast was going to be tops, it was a let down, nothing special. First the grits is the big test and to... More

We stayed at a hotel across the street. We were looking for a place for breakfast and were recommended this place by locals. The outside of the building isn't impressive, but don't let that stop you. Prices are fair. The food is good and the service was good.

We stayed at the Candlewood across the street and stopped here for breakfast before leaving town. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend.

I basically have two favorites: Breakfast in a Cup (grits with sausage, egg or egg white & cheese) and the Salad Duo (it's such a large portion that it serves as both lunch & dinner). Their black bean soup and taco salad are my co-workers' favorites. Someone always checks for their daily lunch specials via FB. Kevin & his crew... More

This place is very old feeling and needs to be updated. You get a Mobile dirty feel which is typical of most of the city. Everything in mobile is run down so I can't expect them to update when they get so much LOCAL business. All of the business people eat here for lunch cause it is quick and pretty... More

I was downtown for business and grabbed a quick lunch at this place for locals. The service was extremely friendly and very fast. The prices were pretty good. I ordered a cheeseburger and paid a little extra for a side salad instead of chips. The food didn't blow me away, but it was good. I was very impressed with how... More
