The apple walnut bread and banana nut bread are perfect for a light breakfast, especially with a 20-ounce cup of Guatemalan French Roast coffee. The locally made blueberry and poppyseed muffins are also very good. My fiancee had a toasted whole wheat bagel that she enjoyed very much as well. The chai unfortunately was a little weak - stick to the coffee. "The Blend" also has a good selection of herbal teas, dessert coffees (including the delicious Bananas Foster), cookies, biscotti, and chocolate covered espresso beans (very dangerous). While you're eating/drinking, you can browse through the local music and events guides that are available by the inside tables. As much as I love Cafe du Monde, you'll definitely feel more like a local at Royal Blend.
