The absolute definition of a traditional greasy spoon cafe with traditional charm, clean concise food and a unique place in London.

Spotted this cafe in TripAdvisor, and dropped in rather than pay £18 for breakfast at the nearby hotel I was staying in. This place is great. It has a good atmosphere, and offers a really cheap and tasty breakfast. Highly recommended.

A Great British cafe. Everything it should be and more. The staff, the decor and the other customers all make it a totally-London experience (in a good way) plus a great breakfast. Recommend the bubble and squeak.

I found this place as staying nearby, a great find as really cheap and good value. Atmosphere is like what a typical London cafe should be, the owner shouting your order for collection is great and adds character. Lots of choice for breakfast and does some good lunch offers too. It's not a 'meeting' place as there is an essence... More

We have been popping in here on and off for about 8 years. Mostly on a Saturday morning, we have experienced both the man and the lady. One of the most entertaining cafés I have ever been too. We hadn't been in for a while, the man was in today, and somehow seemed to remember us, which is nice. They... More

If you are a tourist with a traditional English Breakfast on your to-do list, Regency Cafe is the place to go. Unbelievably hospitable host. Great atmosphere without a lot of glitz and glamor. Located about a mile from Big Ben. Yes, you can walk from there if need be. The best things about this place are: they will serve you... More

We had the great fortune of living right next to this wonderfully genuine little diner. The owners take orders and shouts out ready ones loudly over the crowd of people standing in line. The guests range from tourists to regulars and there's always someone in line waiting to get their breakfast ordered. The breakfast is traditional English with a standard... More

Busy and packed London cafe off the Victoria rd. Anything and everything you require in a English cafe. Line up at the counter and order food before you sit. Don't dare sit down before you do. Your order is shouted out and you collect from counter. Everything cooked well . Bacon wasn't done the way I prefer but hey it... More

There's little to say that hasnt been said. The Regency is absolutely unique and caters in its own special way for everyone - commoners and kings. It is in a quiet part of town that houses every type of Londoner from labourer to Lord of the Realm - all treated to the same friendly efficient service and terrific range of... More
