Royal bakery has the best bagels in the metropolitan area. Outside of NYC, you won't find any better. Pastries and donuts look outstanding in the showcases. Original owners from NY and current owner has kept the same quality while also increasing the variety of sandwich selections. Royal may have a small seating area but they are big on taste.

This bakery has obsolutely delicious Deli and breakfast foods including pastries. Best for take-out or catering; not much seating place.

The selection of baked goods is extensive, fresh and top quality. The counter service is excellent and our fresh order was prepared and delivered quickly. The consistency of this neighborhood bakery is evident by the local support, and is well deserved.

Really good deli fare. Delicious donuts and pastries, too. The bagels are good enough to serve from a cart in NYC. THAT good. It's a little difficult to get to and can be difficult to park, plus the store isn't conducive to lines, but the service is fast and efficient.

Second time I've been there. Which is saying a lot since I live in Montana and this place is over an hour away from family in the 'area'. It is worth the drive and hassle of traffic. Their sandwiches easily feed two people...they do not skimp on the meats and cheese (Boars Head). I enjoyed an Italian one this visit... More

Went to Royal for breakfast. Had the Nova Platter. A little less NOVA no lettuce but more tomato. The bagels were fresh and good, the Nova was very tasty, good quality. The owner is doing okay with the place, notice not so much stock out and the doughnuts are smaller now. But still a good value and decent food, best... More

Love coming in and seeing the glasses cases full of Italian bakery items. The pumpernickel bagel was soft inside and firm outside. We took a variety of desserts to family at home who enjoyed them all. When I asked about an item they offered to cut it up and allow my family to try it.

Yum!!!! All kinds of sweet treats and delicious foods reminiscent of a true new York deli. Bagels are the best but my favorite is the Apple fritter.
