I've reviewed this restaurant under its new name but had to add this one too The Garden Cafe used to be pricey but good. Unfortunately, it's now been taken over by Benugo and its rubbish. Not sure why Benugo have got all the museum and park contracts, their standards are very low. Come to this beautiful location for decent coffee... More

My brother ordered the fish and chips. Usually this dish is served with the whole fish fillet, but they only gave us half, so it's not worth the price. I ordered the chicken caesar salad - it looked physically unappetizing, portion was too small, and the amount of chicken served was selfish. 100% NOT WORTH the price of £12.50. The... More

There is plenty of oom especially on a fine day when you can sit outside. There is a good range of food and the staff are friendly and efficient. Excellent toilets.

Lovely location. Calm oasis . almost hidden away in quiet corner of the park. Good place to grab a light snack and watch the world go by or take a book and read!

I used to go to the cafe with my grandma, and have coffee and ice-cream. When she passed away we went there on what would have been her birthday, and it's become a full-on restaurant. Food menu was really good - though a little bit limited for vegetarians. I was with about 5 smallish children, under 12 years old, and... More

Great kids meals and a nice simple menu which is tasty and hot for adults - lovely views of the park and great staff. Nice drinks menu - released vibe, not rushed - could have stayed there all afternoon.

We always stop at the cafe when visiting Regents Park. We usually get some tea and a sweet. We hadn't been in a couple of years and the cafe has changed a little. More people seemed to be eating meals than just a quick bite. They now offer wood fired pizzas and a grab and go section. We visited on... More

Have had morning coffee/afternoon tea many times in this restaurant. Have always found the staff very helpful and choice of food good value. Toilets very good. Tends to be busy in the summertime with locals.
