The cafe is tucked away on the left as you head down Matthews Station Rd. It's a very casual, euro style, cafe and the crepes are made in front of you. This was our first trip to a creperie and we were all expecting a wide assortment of dessert style crepes. These were available but the Royal Cafe also offered... More

We stopped here some months ago and decided to give it a follow up visit. If possible the food is even better. I had the Lean Machine which I can highly recommend. Good prices and fresh ingredients make for a tasty combination

This is an amazing place! The crêpes are just divine but their teas are even better! I had the rooibos-chamomile tea and it was delicious!

This is my treat to be able to go to the Royal Crêperie! First of all, the staff is so friendly! I also love all of the savory crêpe options, as well as the sweet ones. My favorite is the Omega 3 crêpe! Try the gluten free crêpe option, you'll love it! Also, get one of their awesome coffees or... More

Crepes are delicately thin pancakes that can be filled with either sweet ingredients (strawberries, Nutella, chocolate) or savory (chicken, vegetables, cheese, etc). Besides this unique and fun food, this cafe also has many varieties of coffee and teas. The owners are passionate about their food and very willing to help you fill your crepe and cup with delectable contents. You... More

I stopped by today as we had never visited this sweet spot in Matthews. I was highly disappointed and we won't be back. I start off by saying my crepe appeared to be undercooked. It was underwhelming and actually below average although I gave them 3 stars for "average". It really was bland. To be honest with you, I am... More

My wife & I always stop in at the Royal Cafe & Creperie when we visit our old neighborhood in Matthews. The oh so MANY choices available - whether for breakfast or for later dining - are mouth watering, indeed. The staff - and particularly the owners who work on site - are delightful to converse with. And it's sooo... More

We had lunch at Royal Cafe. Overall, we enjoyed it and we are eager to eat there, again. My Mediterranen crepe was quite good--if just the tiniest bit dry--I might have liked a little more filling in my crepe. However, dessert was excellent! The real standout was my Tiramisu crepe. It was completely delicious and I loved every mouthful. Royal... More

My wife and I paid a mid-day visit. It was pretty busy, but we managed to place our order at the counter and find a table. We shared a Hamazing Crepe (Ham, Swiss cheese, Sautéed Mushrooms, Onion, Lettuce, and Mayo) and a Royal Trinity Crepe (Bananas, Strawberries, Nutella, topped with Whipped Cream, Chocolate Sauce, and Powdered Sugar.) Both crepes were... More
