Royale Burgers & Beer Captures the Spirit of a 1950s Diner

This downtown dining spot serves up comfort food like fresh burgers, milkshakes and house-made doughnuts and pies.

Designed as a 1950s diner, Royale Burgers transports you to a bygone era — with one modern twist. Instead of retro posters, here you can spot graffiti on the walls. If you’re in need of comfort food and a setting quiet enough to let you hear the conversation, this burger joint provides a safe haven in a sea of buzzing downtown dining spots. You can expect the burgers to be fresh — the local grass-fed beef is cured and ground in-house. The spacious and well-lit restaurant also serves craft beers and a rotating selection of house-made doughnuts and pies — and, of course, classic milkshakes.

Try the Buttermilk Fried Chicken sandwich with bread and butter pickles, lettuce, tomato and Buffalo hot sauce. It  brings just enough kick to give it a rich flavour, yet isn’t spicy enough to leave you breathless. Pair it with the crispy onion rings for a savoury and filling meal. And, if you prefer your burgers with beef, and your comfort food loaded with cheese, consider this: The Royale With Cheese beef burger made especially for you — it comes with plenty of melted aged cheddar and mozzarella.
