This place was a short walk away from our hotel (Doubletree Hilton Westminster) and we wished we had found out earlier! We visited on a Saturday morning around 8:30am and found the cafe to be nice and quiet although I had read it can get very busy. We ordered and received our food within 5-10 minutes! A breakkie of 2... More

First morning after our first night in the Hilton we came across this little gem of a cafe. Absolutely rammed with people which is always a good sign of good scran. Cash only for those people like me who only ever carry cards! Whilst queuing for the food kept hearing someone shout the orders like a fishmonger, looked at all... More

As well as offering the best fry up in the area, if not the city, The Regency is a true local landmark having appeared in multiple films including Layer Cake. Its unique method of service (a man or lady yelling your name) draws in the masses and the decor is largely unchanged from when it opened - has to be... More

Another great meal at the Regency. We used to come here every couple of days as my old college is around the corner. Marco and Claudia are great people and really bring a lot of character to the place, it definitely wouldn't be the same without them! The Regency is a historical landmark and is always usually very busy. A... More

Great atmosphere, clean with prompt service. Food was a 3 but adding everything together it became a 4. Very busy for breakfast, line grew from 2 to out the door in minutes. Like others, the highlight is the short powerhouse behind the counter. Taking your order she sounds like a typical English mum. Only seconds later when belting out orders... More

I've been here a few times after a friend recommended it - and it is fantastic! The food is great and really good value. Always a queue but it goes fast and is worth the wait. I think it's one of the best breakfast spots in London and I've introduced it to friends and family who are also impressed. Will... More

The experience was not what we expected. Food is great for locals. Enjoyed the lady at the register she was a multitasking employee. She also called out the orders for pickup and we thought it was a man! To our surprise it was her as well. Very entertaining!

I used to come here fairly frequently asked I worked round the corner and the food was always excellent so popped back earlier in the year and it was just as good. Large hot portions at reasonable prices, friendly staff and authentic decor. Worth a visit!

After 24 hours flying, all we wanted was a whole sum English breakfast, the Regency Cafe was perfect. Great food in an authentic English mans cafe, real fun and a short walk from Vauxhall train station.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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.
