Espresso Royale Caffe and I have a lot of history. I would sit for hours with a latte or tea, bagel sandwich or vegan brownie and read.
ERC has several locations and each has a hipster feel to it, local art and some great baked goods including toffee cookies. The baristas are very consistent, but do take sometime crafting each beverage.
ERC serves bagels from Bagels Rising and offers tofu spreads, hummus, breakfast bagels and some specialties such as turkey avocado and sandwiches with chia seeds.
The machine is 23 years old! I had a sencha tea, but Espresso Royale has good selection of loose leaf teas from oolong, green to black.
I really enjoy the hand painted tables. One table in the Huntington location has Muffins are for Lovers and a cute muffin painted on the green background. Local art is featured and sold at Espresso Royal Caffe.
