This place has the best Gelato! Many flavors to choose from and you get to select 3 Cant go wrong there They also have homemade soups that are very yummy as well. They also added a nice outdoor seating area that is nice in the summer

Stopped in with a friend and was able to taste before I bought and then you can pick 3 different flavors for your bowl!!! Service was friendly and informative; slow but friendly! The gelato was top notch!!! Made homemade on site. I have recently traveled to Italy and had many a gelato; Royal Cafe's gelato can go toe to toe... More

We have visited this place many times while in Fairport. They never disappoint! The flavors are a blend of unique and traditional but always full of flavor! A small is a great value! It is plenty big and a great price! We always enjoy going here and the ladies who work there are really sweet!

Stopped in here by happenstance, a very friendly young woman took care of us. She answered our questions and had a very cheery attitude. Gelato wasn't my first pick, but I thoroughly enjoyed stopping in and getting some. I'd recommend the pineapple!! I'd definitely come here again :)

I stopped in for a quick lunch and I loved their tuna melt. The warm flatbread, tuna and cucumbers was perfection. Their Gelato looked really tempting.. I'm surprised more folks walking and riding the canalway trail do not stop in.

many flavors and the chance to sample them before making your decision as to which one(s) you want to buy. Very friendly, customer-focused family run business

When we want a treat I take my girls to Royal Cafe. It never disappoints. For a small dish of gelato you can sample 3 different flavors. It's great to be able to sample ahead of time which they will gladly do too! The women who run it are kind and sweet. They brought over free cookies to try while... More

Having spent 7 weeks in Europe last year, I was able to have more than my share of gelato, both in Italy and in other parts of Europe. The so called gelato at the Royal Cafe was a far cry from anything I've ever had. It was very disappointing.

What a great place to find gelato! It is right on main and the gelato is made right there. You even can get spagetti gelato complete with meat balls! We found it by accident and have been going back ever since. The gelato reminds me of being in Italy!

I ended up missing the bus back to Buffalo, so my friend and I went to Royal Cafe for gelato at his urging. It's a short drive from Rochester, and in a beautiful canalside community called Fairport. The owner was in the middle of closing due to the day being cold and overcast, but gave us a chance since we... More
