Regency Cafe is a well oiled machine. The man behind the counter (I assume is the owner) runs an efficient brigade delivering solid English food.
Arrived at 1030 on a Saturday morning. Joined the queue and ordered from the owner. When my order was ready, the owner called my name in a deep commanding voice. I gave my thanks and he gave me his. I had my first bite by 1100.
I can only speak of my experience eating the breakfast set with all the extras. Everything was cooked and seasoned well. Portions were generous. I could hardly finish everything. (33 yo male, 170lbs). Coffee could be more strong, but that's me nitpicking.
Great place! I didn't even finish my meal and already wanted to share. Local business, great good, good price. The clientele is a funny mix of tourists (myself included ) and locals. Monday morning around 7:30 is not crowded, and food came fast, with perfect eggs. Lovely, and I'll return for sure.
I really do not get the hype about this place. I work in the area and yes, it always seem busy, granted. So I decided to pop in a see what all the fuss was about.
I got a bacon and egg sandwich, £3.75?! Then it's not even brought to you, to woman behind the counter just screams your order and you have to go a get it yourself?? Also this cafe uses that thick bloomer bread - such a gimmick! Because now it's more bread then filling! The egg only filled one half of the sandwich! I read other reviews about the prices being reasonable? No way.
The cafe across the street is 10x better priced and you get more for your money.
Cash only! Be ready to order.
I wonderful little corner cafe if you want an authentic experience. Not expensive, good food.
Loved this place. Came here for the first time and what I call a proper cafe.
Service was top and the woman at the front was very welcoming.
The food tastes good and I will for sure come back
