The Royal Hotel and the “Shops around the Corner”

Mill Street, Chilliwack

Around the corner from the historic Royal Hotel, quaint Mill Street offers plenty of shopping and eating options. Here are the “shops around the corner” from the Royal Hotel, on Mill Street.

Served in bone china cups and saucers, afternoon tea at Apeldoorn’s is a relaxing, elegant way to sip and savour after shopping. Apeldoorn’s also serves light lunch as well as traditional high tea complete with Devon cream and fancy little sandwiches. I love the vintage tables and chairs and the cozy ambiance of this popular lunch spot. https://www.facebook.com/Apeldoorns
