Never let's me down..

Whenever in the area I ensure I pay a visit to the Regency. The food is great, the price is great and the atmosphere is great. If you are stuck up you should avoid.

A friend who has been coming here for the past decade took me here one morning, before I had to begin a day's journey back home. I recognised the interior from various TV programmes and photoshoots that had taken place here. The interior is what you'd expect of a traditional British greasy spoon, sadly been overtaken by overpriced hipster eateries... More

A good old worker's cafe with simple but good food. No fuss But friendly and welcoming staff and reasonably priced. I've visited a few times and I'm sure I will again.

Don't expect it to be fancy. I believe this is the true English breakfast experience - get in, order food, sit down, eat, leave and go about your day. Simple, nostalgic, good food.

An old style posh builders café with a high quality gastro touch serving breakfast and lunch on an industrial scale. Every time I am in the area I make sure I give it a visit.

A charmingly, nostalgic, unbelievably busy, greasy spoon London experience. Considering the constant stream of customers, the cafe is organised and extremely efficient. The lady who kept the service of an exceptional standard, did so with the most amazing voice (which can only be described as the lady who swallowed the microphone) Great experience with fabulous memorabilia!!

It was all about fish and chips today for our Fry-day lunch! Our "team leader" told us to get ready to queue at 11.30am for lunch service and all the tables were already gone by them, but then one table became available, luckily. The chips are super crispy and the cod came with a lovely crunchy batter that kept the... More

Good old fashioned greasy spoon cafe. Delicious breakfast in there, the chips are just like chip shop chips too. Recommended.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
