Know what you’re in for at Café de Marquis, an independent coffeehouse in downtown Royal Oak--one does not get assembly-line service here. It’s the perfect place to enjoy specialty selections, such as coconut latte, banana frappe, or ice cream while the relaxing and artistic atmosphere conjures images of an extravagant tropical vacation.
What sets the Century Club apart is the attention to detail. The menu features solid favorites, heavily weighted toward meat-lovers, as well as vegetarian crepes and two fish entrées. A word of warning though: There are two theaters in the same building (the Gem Theatre and the Century Theatre), which can jam up the reservations desk especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
