“A proper Caff”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I took the family for breakfast rather than pay over the odds at the Double Tree Westminster. It's not chic, but it's stylish in it's own way and serves up simple, good, honest food at a great price. The Boss went out of his way to make sure that we got exactly what we wanted and has that rare gift of making each customer feel special. We loved listening to his deep baritone voice almost singing out the orders as they arrived. It's a great place to people watch too: all sections of London society go there to eat. It's reputation is richly deserved. GO!

“Brilliant greasy spoon”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Stopped by the Regency Cafe for breakfast twice last week. What a great find. Loved the traditional cafe atmosphere (est 1949) and all the photos and memorabilia on the walls. Had the cooked breakfasts and a mug of builders tea with the locals, ordered at the counter and served when the owner called out "two eggs two bacon on bubble two toasts" to order. Very good value and an enjoyable start to the day. Not posh, not sophisticated, but a taste of London in more ways than one. We loved it!

“Good food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

There is always a long queue but it's worth the wait. Once you have finally reached the counter where you can place your order, the food comes quickly. The scrambled eggs are light, tomatoes and mushrooms are well grilled. The atmosphere is friendly and the setting interesting.

“Film buff will love this cafe - featured in many films”

Good food, good atmosphere. Listen for the lady who shouts out your order - she is tiny but sounds like a man, very amusing.

“Perfect place for breakfast”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Superb cafe. Outstanding typically british atmosphere. I really like its breakfast sets: free range eggs are fantastic, beans are tasty, pudding is perfect and bacon is great. Superb place. One of my favourite cafes in London to have breakfast. Worth visiting even if you're not staying in Pimlico. Worth coming here by tube.
