Good breakfast. Nice atmosphere. Attentive staff. Available to the public, even though it is on The Royal property. I recently wrote this review, but addressed it to Chef's Plate. I did not visit Chef's Plate. Sorry for any confusion.

Good choice in dishes and drinks and the tacos from Rincon Mexicano next door are good for filling up the corners.
