Royal/T in Culver City is a cafe, contemporary art gallery, and shop all in one—and al united by a love of Japan. Staff wear coquettish maid uniforms as a form of cosplay (costume play) popularized in Japan, and the walls of the bright, high-ceiling cafe are often adorned with Anime. The menu lists more than 24 teas and coffees, including the mild-tasting Royal/T milk tea—a black tea with rose petals, fruit, vanilla, and soy milk. Breakfast and lunch (the only meals offered) include Japanese-California fusion dishes. Much of the art on display comes from owner Susan Hancock’s private collection.
