“Chocolate Cake of note”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

My aunt introduced us to Royal Hotel Coffee Shop. Im not too big on cakes but coffee can get me on a high at any time. The coffee here is amazing but then again, just about all the places I go to serve great coffee. As for their Chocolate Cake, I love it <3

“Fantastic Coffee Shoppe”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

One of my favorite place to have coffee at. It's expensive, but worth it! Usually stop there after the symphony when even at that time of night, staff are friendly and inviting.

“Quality coffee in a Royal setting”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Situated in the centre of Durban and overlooking some fantastic old Durban architecture, the Royal Hotel Coffee Shoppe is a great place to meet for a quick rendezvous in top-class style. Simply one of the best spots in Durban Central because of its class, location, and views. Don't forget to go exploring the upper floors of the Hotel and hit the roof for a stunning view of the city!

“Such insensitive opening hours.”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

How the only joint available to after concert and play patrons can close it door as you arrive for a welcome cuppa or tipple is beyond comprehension. Every time a coconut! How about a little liaison with the Playhouse and the City Hall, Gents? Profit beckons!!!!
