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.

Not being from England I asked where to get a traditional English breakfast. Well this place more than filled the bill. The food was very good and the owner was a real character. He alone was worth going there. I had the eggs, toast, bacon, ham, tomatoes and potatoes--all well prepared. Price was also reasonable and the surrounding neighborhood interesting.... More

Me and a few of the lads popped to London for a birthday pub crawl, after 6 hours on the bus overnight this hit the spot. Food was excellent, character was endearing and ambience is what one would expect from a cafe. The geezer who owns the place shouts like nobody else.

We returned for a second helping and were not dissapointed. We had steak and chips again which was lovely - especially the chips which were proper cooked and homemade ones. The steak was thin and cooked well and was not chewy. For afters we had a great big slice of hot apple pie and custard and a massive chocolate donut.... More

Let's not get too over the top here. This is a real working person's breakfast and lunch shop. Plastic booth, zero decor feel, straight ahead high carb breakfasts and lunches. That said: a real great bargain. Full English breakfast (one egg, two toast, tomato, ham AND sausage) just 5.5 pounds (half what you'd pay in a place in tourist sections.... More
