70 S. Royal St.

70 S. Royal Steet, better known as Sundae Royale, is located in a non-contributing structure of the Church Street East Historic District. It is currently sandwiched between two restaurants, one of which is the contributing building Veets. Its proximity to family-friendly sites like the Exploreum Science Center makes this site the ideal place for a sweet treat. Visitors like the Perez family will have a hard time deciding between classic flavors like Rocky Road, Chocolate-Chip Mint, and Tutti Frutti. But, no matter what fills their cones, twins Marco and Polo will be sure to get extra sprinkles!

 

The updated facade removes the current stucco in favor of distressed brick. There is precedent for the metal awning on the building as Sanborn Maps from 1885 shows the street was lined with iron coverings and even as recently as 2005 this site had a canvas awning. The neon sign and larger windows are a lively, modern addition to make Sundae Royale stand out in a busy area like Royal Street.
