A popular cafe for many years, the Royal Cafe must have seen many renovations in its time. For this refurbishment in 1937, the cafe was closed for three weeks. The article lists many of the changes and improvements, including a novel ventilator for the stove, an insulated and refrigerated cold room, and lino floors. The color scheme was deep cream and orange. The cafe operated well into the 1960s, and while I don’t remember much about the interior of the cafe, I do remember that they had the best pineapple chicken balls in town!
