Regency Cafe. London, United Kingdom

A traditional 'caff' or 'greasy spoon', the Regency Cafe has been serving customers from builders and politicians to tourists and schoolchildren since 1946. It was also recently voted as one of London's best eateries - above many more famous and expensive restaurants.

There's a method to eating here. Queue up at the counter, place your order, pay for it, find an empty table, then return to the counter to collect your food when Italian owner Marco (with an extraordinary memory for who ordered what) shouts out the orders. Follow this sequence and you won't get into trouble.

Tea is proper builder's strength and can be ordered as 'strong' or 'normal'. I had the £5.50 English breakfast deal while my husband created his own breakfast, including homemade bubble and squeak. The food is cheap but good quality, the decor true vintage and it's fun to eat here.

Mon-Fri 07.00-14.30, 16.00-19.00
