“Very average.”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Even though it's a sit-down coffee shop, it's pretty expensive. The coffee isn't worth raving about, but it isn't awful. There are a few flavours of the day, and they're usually pretty good. They also serve one kind of lunch per day, and it's decent but pricey.

The service there is hit-and-miss. Some barristas are better than others, and I've definitely encountered some who are less-than-friendly.

What's really annoying is that their bathroom isn't accessible to the public. I get that it would be horrible to clean, but after drinking coffee and sitting there for a half hour, I really need the can!

Overall, not a bad place, but could for sure do with a few improvements.

“Average coffee for too much money.”
Reviewed December 31, 2010

The service is usually competent and friendly. The coffee is average, though there is a lot to choose from. The lunches are expensive, but are actually quite decent. Desserts are good, but really fattening. There is not a lot of room to sit, I guess they expect you to get your coffee and go--they don't even provide a washroom.
Roy Lane is good for its variety, but it's not a good place to go if you want high quality coffee for a reasonable price.

“Great food, and coffee!”
Reviewed October 20, 2009

Roy Lane has a wide selection of coffees and teas to choose from. They also have a variety of delicious desserts.

Roy Lane also serves lunch during the weekdays. They have one item but it never disappoints.
