Regency Cafe is one of those places that you either get, or you don't. It is an archetypal greasy spoon with large portions of food served swiftly and with a genuinely unique system to notify customers that their meal is ready i.e. a haunting and booming voice bellowing your order number until it is collected. One can always spot the... More

We read reviews of before finding this place. We are glad we took the effort to do so. The breakfast and atmosphere were just what we were looking for to start our day in London. This place has real character about it. A great breakfast at a great price.

No Macbooks, even no laptops at all. Really good full english breakfast or steak pie. A completely different saturday morning breakfast compared to going to Brixton market. And you need the victoria tube for both destinations anyway. Highly recommended. Open from 7 am to 7 pm, closed sundays. Closed from 2.30 to 4 pm in the afternoons.

We came here on a weekday, around 9am. A male staff was at the counter but asked us to wait for a while, with a smile. We were left at standing by the counter for a couple of minutes while they were busy with other stuff, before another lady staff came to the counter with a slight smile and hello!... More

Does exactly what it says. No nonsense english breakfast (and lunch options) for 5.50 you get a full english - sausage, bacon, egg, beans or tomato, bread or toast, coffee or tea. Perfect. Other options to add hash browns, bubble and squeak. This place hasn't been updated or redecorated in a long while but it doesn't need it. I took... More

This place has become my day-off treat. There are loads of cafés in the area, but none quite like this place. The Regency Cafe is an institution, famous for being a fashion-shoot and film back-drop thanks to it's enduring old style cafe charm. The best time to go I have found is around 11am when the breakfast queue dies down.... More

Very clean, highly efficent service, good hot food rapidly delivered. Only important drawback... No toilets nor hand washing facilities for customers.

We had an English Breakfast and it was perfect. The only negative point is the space between 2 tables... not so much.

Thanks for introducing us to a proper English breakfast!!! The tomatoes were as fresh as any I have ever eaten and I was raised by a tomato grower in a tomato state. Everything was perfect.

You can pay 20 quid a head and more going to great places like Simpsons or the Goring or you can go the Regency Cafe and get a fantastic breakfast for around 6 pounds. At 7.15 on a Saturday morning it was packed with locals eating before a day's work. The friends from across the Atlantic I took with me... More
