Really good

A cut above your average breakfast gaff. Idiosyncratic service technique, but there's something quite atmospheric about having other customers' orders bellowed across the room at top volume. Sausage quality is surprisingly good.

Go here for breakfast and gorge yourself on the Traditional English Breakfast - bacon, egg, sausage, beans, toast and tea. Enough food and calories to keep you going all day. But be aware, this is self-service and there are no fancy table-cloths or napkins. This is just basic quality food. And at busy times you may need to share a... More

With two of my esteemed colleagues I have to admit we enjoyed the best baked beans we had ever eaten. I also had my first ever black pudding. What an experience! Fabulous! This was our farewell dinner and we couldn't have picked a better spot to break bread together for the last time.

Really disappointed in this place. The building is attractive and I read a lot of interesting reviews. The options for vegetarians are seriously limited, and what I managed to order for breakfast arrived burnt so this place rapidly lost its charm. The bloke behind the counter really got off on being rude to customers, me included. He made us feel... More

We read reviews about how busy it gets in the morning since locals want to get in and get out, so we went for breakfast at around 10am. Although still bustling, it's easier to order without feeling the pressure from the rush. We got the breakfast set, with bread (as suggested by other reviewers), coffee with frothy milk, tomatoes and... More

Decent English fry up. Eggs were good, nice cuppa and great sausages! Would have liked mushrooms and perhaps a toilet in the building (you need to use one on the street), but for the price/location/quality I won't complain. We were well fed and would return again.

I lived on Regency Street a decade ago and used to frequent the RC on a Saturday morning, often nursing the night before. I returned this week having been abroad for a few years and discovered, much to my relief, that precisely nothing had changed. I was hugely cheered to find Marco still warmly bellowing out diners' names and the... More

My friends and I decided to start our day with traditional English breakfast and the Regency Cafe was the closest one open. I'm so glad it was because it was an excellent experience! The food was as good as classic English breakfast can be, the service was fast and atmosphere busy and pleasantly busy!

We had a quick lunch because it's quite busy, the place is nice not pretentious at all whit a very typical British menu (from beans to fish&chips, sausages, hamburgers, omelettes and so on). It's really cheap, the service is super quick (you have to pick up your dishes once they're done) and we had good stuff!

I had bubble and veggie Eggs Benedict. I loved the food, staff and atmosphere. It's an expertly run cafe and spotlessly clean.

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.
