We enjoy a good cooked breakfast and it's amazing how many hotels get it so wrong. We were staying at a 5* hotel in town and thought we'd give their poncy and very expensive fare a miss and track down somewhere else to go for a classic British fry up in honest surroundings.... And we found it at the Regency Cafe.

I have to say its not easy searching for a decent breakfast cafe and I happened to find a forum elsewhere that mentioned the Regency. It's a pity Trip Advisor doesn't include Breakfast in their search filters. Anyway perhaps it's a good thing as it would be a shame if this place became overrun with tourists.

If you follow the owners rules on ordering, you'll be just fine. The breakfast choice is great, catering for all combinations and however you like your eggs done. The portions are generous and satisfying. The bacon is cooked perfectly, just a little crispy and the fried eggs were spot on, not at all overcooked with a runny yolk. The tea is a good British brew too.

Thoroughly reccommended!! We'll be going back for sure!

Step back in time for the best breakfast in London. Walk up to the counter and order the set breakfast - bacon rasher, sausage, beans or grilled tomato and an egg with choice of toast or bread and butter, and of course coffee or tea. Take a seat and once it's ready you'll hear a deep bellow to pick up your breakfast!

This is a regular stopping point on a Saturday for a group of us.food is good,cafe is spotless.about correct value.few points for first timers..Don't take a seat before ordering,that's not allowed.remember your order(& who had what in front of you if possible)itll be shouted up when ready.take your own cutlery from near the tea urn.in winter try not to sit near the front door or you'll get an artic blast everytime someone enters.if you want a second cup of tea you don't have to queue up again just go to front & order it.all in all one the best cafes of its style in London.theres not many left like it.italian one on bethnal green similar

There's a guy that shouts your order, louder than my father when he was mad! But the food is good, it all looks clean and nice, decoration is very good, and food is just what you need! Neighbors go there very often, so is a good sign! Just be careful, is a breakfast place, closes at midday and reopens later

Second time here and really enjoyed it both times. A good old mug of strong tea, two thick slices of toast and a plate of really well cooked, good quality fry up ingredients....Perfect! It's all served in a typical London cafe setting, with sometimes a man or sometimes a lady that shouts orders; interestingly they have the same voice- are they related?!
