What is not to like?! The place has been around since 1902, it has an old fashioned FEEL, complete with ripped naugahide on the booth banquet I asked a customer leaving if the breakfasts were good. He said yes. So, we entered. The food was not all that great. I had a nice feta -Greek- omelet. But, the grits were certainly not made by any self respecting southerner. The grits were tasteless and watery. The ham is excellent. The pancakes rubber like. This has all the potntial to be a hidden gem. It ain't there yet

This spot is a hidden gem diner. Great for eggs, bacon and home-fries for breakfast. They make fantastic poached eggs. The grits are also very tasty. Good breakfast buffet on the weekend.

Decent food, especially breakfast. Competent service and good prices. Off-street parking. What's not to like?

The chef makes the best omelets on Saturday and Sunday while the restaurant offers it's large breakfast buffet.

Where in DC can you get a full breakfast for only $7.00? The Royal Restaurant. I have only had breakfast here, but it is delicious!
