About Us

Food. Service. History. What’s Our Story?


Welcome to The Royal Cafe! This restaurant is owned and operated by Devika Gillette. We wish for you to enjoy the warm feel of this 106-year old venue with period decor and a varied menu that is located in beautiful downtown Chilliwack and within The Royal Hotel, a heritage hotel built in 1908.

Our menu has something for everyone. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whether your preference is home-style comfort foods, selections from our Mexican menu or our Fiji-style rice bowls, you will find something you like and maybe something new. We cook fresh for you and look to local producers for our ingredients. Sometimes it may take a little longer, but we believe you will taste the difference fresh makes.

Devika loves to be creative and our Catering division offers you an abundance of options. From our basic menu outlines to themed dinners such as Greek, Mexican, Indian and more, there is something for every occasion.


If you are looking for some royal service, fun times, and good food, stop by or contact us. We are here to ensure a trip to the beautiful, historic downtown Chilliwack is fun, tasty and adventurous!!
