coffee, done right.


A cafe and restaurant serving seasonal pastries and full-course dishes, as well as a coffee, beer, and wine menu that captures the bi-coastal variances of leading culinary locales.


A notorious 18th century Parisian coffeehouse known for their vices and excesses, the original Au Tambour Royale hosted such boisterous characters as King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

We wanted to bring a little of that tasty tomfoolery to Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, with Royal Drummer.

Every month we re-envision our menu, offering new sandwiches, salads, and coffees highlighting a collection of artisans from the Pacific Northwest and further afield. Above all, we look forward to serving you.
