Originally from England but now residing in the US, this was a family trip planned so as to allow my brother and I to show my wife and her American family the sights of London.

Excellant food and once you've ordered - hot and fresh. Make a point of taking friends from UK and especially "Over the Pond" for a fantastic authentic good old English fry up.

I am a Mockney that is now living in exile in Manchester, so when I get the chance to go back to London I am always keen of a few reminders of what I am missing. I was down to go to an Arsenal game and had heard great things of the Regency so thought I would pay a visit.... More

Visited the regency cafe after a recommendation from Esquire magazine and we are glad we did!! The cafe itself had a terrific atmosphere and the table/good ordering method worked with so much precision! The set breakfast was amazing and well worth the money! Wouldn't bother getting an expensive hotel breakfast again!

Great value English Breakfast. You can order the components of it that you want and the price is based off of that. I can't eat gluten but they still had some options I could eat.

Yummy food, great prices for the amount of food you get, and nice service at the counter. Be aware that it's cash only. We went here twice during our 4-day stay in London and enjoyed it both times. Appreciated that it wasn't very touristy. Would definitely recommend for a true and delicious English-style breakfast!

We found this place on Google maps, and it is very widely recommended on restaurant rating sites. The place was packed with locals lined up to the entrance. It's not the place to go for a relaxing quiet meal, but it was quite fun, and the food was very good and very inexpensive. They serve mainly eggs - fried, omelet,... More

The Regency is tucked away in the backstreets betweek Westminster and Pimlico about a 10 minute walk from Parliament square. The exterior is tiled and harks back to the deco period. Inside it is perennially busy with a seemingly permanet queue. You order at the counter and pay before selecting your table. The set breakfast includes egg, bacon sausage beans... More

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.
