I am a former, long-time Oakland-area resident, now living elsewhere. The Royal Cafe serves the best omelets, benedicts, potatoes, sides, and other breakfast/brunch delights, plus a terrific cup of strong coffee. I've lived in various places in the US, and I have never found a better place for breakfast or brunch. Sunday mornings were a ritual when my kids were very young: we'd wait out there for as long as it took to get a table -- and we NEVER do that anywhere else. It's funky, but it's great! I'd kill for a place that is half as good. In a word: Go!
