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

Well worth the effort to visit a classic caff. It's the scarcity of places like this in London that's regretted. Not greasy at all! Friendly staff and amusing cartoons/photos. Set breakfast is at an amazing price including toast/tea or coffee. We actually liked the sausage which can often be disappointing. Additional choices if required including chips for the workers who... More

I wanted a "traditional" English breakfast, and saw this was a high rated eatery, so I decided to check it out. I got there about 15 mins after it opened and the place was very busy already. I ordered eggs, bubbles and squeak, hash browns, sausage, bacon, tomatoes, and toast. Everything was amazing. Have a hangover? This breakfast is greasy,... More

Traditional greasy spoons are something of a dying breed. This place is a true classic, and long may it live on. The food is good quality old-school cafe fare in an environment that harks back to the days when these kind of cafes were much more common. Orders are taken and then you take a seat. Once your order is... More

All the good things said on this site about this little Oasis in time and Westminster are true. I've been coming here for 15 years and it's cosmopolitan charm, social inclusiveness and brilliantly done comfort food remain unchanged.
