We were Greeks visiting London. As Greeks we know about food, and Regency's English breakfast managed to surprise us with that breakfast. Top Staff! *PS: The photos cannot describe how tasty the breakfast was!

Quick service in a unique location and good value. Always busy and well worth a visit for the food and the experience. I.be never been here when it's been quiet..always busy so you need to be in early to get a seat or be patient to wait for one.

Never lets me down, always a good meal. Get there early otherwise there's a long queue. And take ear plugs! Has featured in many photo shoots and films.

This "cafe" trades on its reputation as being true to its roots in the 1950s. Well, food and service were terrible then, too, and it lives down to these traditions. Staff are surly and disinterested; tea is awful; choice is limited; prices are high; and food below average. My partner ordered fried eggs on toast (they don't do poached!) which... More

Every part of this fry up is perfect. Bubble and squeak is great. Often busy and you may have to queue but I guess that is just another endorsement.

I challenge anyone to come up with a better breakfast venue than this. The experience and food is simply amazing!!!! Be warned though - don't dare sit down before you've ordered or else suffer the consequences...

I walk past this place everyday on my way to work and it never ceases to amaze me that the queue for it is out the door. People get dismayed by this but you shouldn't it goes down very quickly. the cafe has a strict order your food first before taking a seat policy which I like so it means... 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.
