“Senior Citizen Prices and Portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

More than 90% of their business seems to be driven
by the senior citizen crowd (this is Sun City, after all).
We ate supper there and I do not remember seeing
a single child, although this would be a good place
to bring children.

The prices are also geared toward retirees,
with many dishes and specials under $10.
They also offer 99 cent desserts.

The downside is that the portion size is also
geared toward seniors;
the quantity is slightly less than you would
get at a normal restaurant.

The quality of the food is outstanding,
just like homemade.

The quality of the service is also outstanding;
the entire staff is efficient and attentive.

“Old fashioned and freindly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We've been to the Royal Cafe a few times and for some reason we keep going back. The servers are friendly, the food is good, and the prices are very reasonable. If you'd like to step back in time to the 70's go to the Royal Cafe.

“A Winner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

The restaurant is in a strip mall. Nothing fancy to see, The place was packed therefore the service was a little slow. I believe it was slow because they were running a $3.99 dinner special that night. You have to have patient but the wait was very worthwhile. This family oriented restaurant has reasonable prices and good food.

“Cheap Prices, but not cheap food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

My husband and I have been patrons of this Cafe for 4 years and we know the wait staff by name and what area they are in and wait for them if they are busy. The food is really good, never have had bad food. We usually go on the night that they have Navy Bean soup, my husband's favorite. And they usually have specials but I would get there early for the Prime Rib night, they do tend to run out. During the "snowbird season" mornings are usually packed. With the main entree you get 3 sides not 2 sides. Definitely recommend this place anytime of the day.
