    The scramble with basil is out of this world... I have dreams about it. Also, the brew over ice coffee is like crack and makes me bug out, but it's also the most delicious in the neighborhood!

    The old Cafe Royal has become Cafe Edna. Wifi is much improved, there are lots of plugs, and a full food menu. Coffee is courtesy of Toby's Estate. Great, quiet place to work.

    Music was fine actually. Some post punk and first wave xm radio station. Nice place to read and sip on a cafinated beverage with an array of desks and tables. What you expect from a modern BK cafe.

    Near the end of June, the old Cafe Royal became Cafe Edna, reopening with a new coat of paint, better wifi, and now offering Toby's Estate Coffee.

    New owners, now called Cafe Edna. Awesome outdoor seating, friendly staff, delicious egg wraps still the same.

    Tofu Scramble Breakfast Burrito is ultra delicious and not at all skimpy despite its 4$ pricetag. This just became my go-to.

    Be careful! They're really able to spoil your day charging $55 tips from $6 order and fixing it pretty lame if (!) you suddenly notice it. Bad coffee. Soy milk just made it worse. My last time there.

    Iced coffee is great for summer and the peppermint patty is amazing in the winter!

    The chicken/coleslaw salad is so good. Kale potato soup is amazing for snowy days.

    Wifi is now limited to number of hours versus the amount of money you spend (I.e $10 for 2 hours of wifi.) It's stupid slow and shows crazy packet loss. Time to find a new place to work, over it.

    Sad. They revamped the place and in doing so lost a huge amount of character. No more mix n match chairs or funky school desks. The metal tables and dark wood chairs seem West Elm-ish.

    The back/side door in the room with all the tables doesn't open; despite the postit that says so, 95% of patrons will try unsuccessfully.

    I have officially stopped going here because of the untrained staff and their disappointing (lousy) espresso drinks. Do not - I repeat - do not order anything made w/ espresso or you will regret it.

    Try the orange brioche, it's light and fluffy but also filled with the glorious sin of gooey custard!

    Stick to the drinks here. The food, while it looks appetizing and so promising, leaves much to be desired. Portions are small and the flavor doesn't warrant the prices. Coffee, however, is fantastic!

    Seems like a def improvement over cafe royal. No one is here, but can imagine in a few weeks it might be very decent and busy.

    Avoid the breakfast scramble. It's a greasy pile of future dyspepsia.
