I came across Royal/T by way of (amazing photographer) Bonnie Tsang’s food blog and immediately loved the branding, which I later found out was created by Goto Design. Royal/T is part café, part shop, part exhibition space, inspired by the maid café phenomena of Akihabara—Tokyo’s electronic district. Check out some more photos on Bonnie’s blog or Royal/T’s Flickr stream.
