I go here often because I enjoy the food, coffee, and atmosphere. It is a great local coffee shop with a wide selection. If you're on town, check it out!

Cafe Royale has become an especially popular place for a reasonably-priced snack or lunch. Walk up to the counter and choose from one of their specials posted on the small chalkboard noticeable upon entering or one of numerous ones on the boards on the wall behind the counter. Place your order, get your drink, and go find a seat. A... More

Atmosphere is important to me while working on my laptop. The flavored drinks are all top-notch. Food is great also. The one thing I did not like at all is there coffee. Very bitter even with sweetener in it. I had to put 3 sweeteners to tolerate it. That's why I recommend only their flavored coffees, which come in hot... More

For a cup of coffee and a simple sandwich it was just under $8.00 The atmosphere was pleasant. Menu was plastered all over the wall and hard to read. When I was there a religious group was conducting a meeting in one area, and then there was another meeting in the far back. There was wi-fi and there were electrical... More

If you want a good quality coffee, this is the place to go in New Castle. They also serve lunch and although have not had the chance to eat anything here yet, I have heard great reviews from many other people. Maybe that is something you would like to try?

They have awesome espresso's at this place. My kids both teenaged now like their panini's and grilled cheese. Nice place for small meeting or face to face with old friend. I think there espresso's are better than Starbucks!

My husband and I were in the New Castle area for a few days a frequented this cafe 3 days in a row. It's honestly that good. They have great low carb and sugar free variations of their drinks to enjoy with no guilt. Cafe Royal offered endless coffee creations and fresh and unique foods. We enjoyed the atmosphere immensely!... More

My hubby and I love that they have a drive-thru. When we are out running errands we like to grab a cup of coffee. They also make a great Reuben sandwich. We haven't tried the gelato yet but I'm sure it's delicious.

We travel "IN 3" versus I-65 & I-69, to miss the Indy "traffic jams," & also to catch some small town eateries, such as this. I'm hooked on their various types grilled cheese & soups, while my "date" opts for more of the large choices of fresh prepped food. Besides being hard to find, for newcomers, & limited parking, I...
