Introducing our new and improved RR branded keep cups!
These stainless steel insulated bad boys have been designed for lasting drinking pleasure on the go. Wether you’re busy ploughing fields, carting goods across the country or off for a quick surf, these will keep your tasty brew hot or cold for hours.
Available in 6oz and 12oz ☕️


Beauty morning for a brew in the sun 😋☕️


Our new Instant Coffee basking in the morning sunshine!
Yes it’s instant- but not as you know it!
Our instant is 100% coffee, there’s no additives, fillers or fluff. You’re probably not going to swap your lines in the book at your local RR for a jar of our instant, but it’s a tasty, quick and convenient alternative- especially good for coffee emergencies and travel!
I’m short- prepare to be surprised and delighted!
Come and grab one in store and online ☕️💥


A few changes ahead, Royal Whanau.... For the next 4 weeks, we will be closed on Sundays.... But never fear, you can make the short journey to Wainui Rd and get your dayly fix.....

Looking unreal in the morning sun 😍☕️


To our AMAZING Royal Whanau and loyal community hub that we have out here in Matawhero...
It comes with a very HEAVY heart that the Royal Matawhero will be closing it's doors...
Unfortunately due to not being able to find a super team to run our kitchen, we have had to make a heart breaking decision to close the Royal bar/kitchen... Brews from the coffee shack will still be flowing (So don't stress people, you can still grab that coffee fix)
Myself and my amazing team would like to thank you all for your amazing support, aroha, and friendship over the past 3 years... We have some beautiful and pretty frigging special people in this community that after 3 years would call our Family... So from the bottom of mine and my teams heart I thank you ...
