About Royal/T Café

Royal/T Café is a playful blending of café, concept shop and art exhibition space. The space reflects the interior realm of fantasy that strongly influences the artists included in owner Susan Hancock’s collection. Royal/T Cafe is inspired by the meido kissa (maid café) phenomena of Akihabara—Tokyo’s electronic district. Recontextualizing the underground culture of Japan that celebrates cosplay (costume play) waitresses dress in maid uniforms, with a Lolita-esque touch and the café serves a fusion of French and Japanese cuisine with local and organic California style. The art space showcases curated exhibitions with a focus on Japanese contemporary art; and an inventive concept store emulates the collections’ sophistication—a fusion of pop culture and high-end design.
