Great price, awesome food!

My boyfriend and I had done quite a bit of research trying to find great places to eat during our trip to London, but this was truly unexpected! It was great because the cafe was only a few minutes walk from our hotel, and then another short walk to the tube station. It was fairly busy the morning... read more

This place is a must visit not just for breakfast, but for good honest food at good honest value for money prices. The chips are home made, the pies likewise, the bread & butter pudding just like mum use to make. I have clients from Hong Kong, Who have to pay this place a visit every time there over here....

The food is good, but they don't take reservation and there can be long queues. However, it's too cheap for the quality and you can taste the full English breakfast, one of the best you may find in London. But be aware that they close around 1 PM on Saturdays, so arrive early.

We wanted a true English breakfast and think we found it. We enjoyed the fry food (kids said it was the best ever), hashbrowns, saussages, eggs, toast, and much more.... We enjoyed the atmosphere, including the guy with a loud projecting voice calling the names of customers to pick up their orders, and the fact that the locals seemed to... More

It's hard to find food this cheap in London and even harder to find cheap food this solid. Regency serves traditional British food that is both good and reasonably priced with a classic cafe feel. I enjoyed my meal there and felt I had experienced a real English meal.

If you want a decent breakfast at a great price with a little bit of charm thrown in, then you will love this cafe. Food was excellently cooked and there was plenty of it.

I work in the local area so have gone to Regency Café quite a few times, it also appears on TV quiet a lot. Regency is probably one of the best greasy spoon cafes in London. The fry breakfast is second to none, the lunch is great, I am particularly fond of the scampi and chips. The atmosphere is great,... More

A place not to be missed if you are craving for a meal of authentic British breakfast. Tucked away in a neighborhood not far away from Victoria, you will be spoilt for choice which are served at a reasonable pricing. It's policy of having "all seats reserved until your order has been made" may seem different from the norm but... More

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.
