    Wonderful place! Love it at any time of the year, month,week and day! Love the desserts and by all means the breakfast menu, ask for French toast even if it isn't on the menu, the chef is very kind! x

    We tried all types of eggs and all of them tasted good. The bread was nice also the pancakes were one of our favorites. We decided to come here to celebrate Eid and it was the right choice👍🏻👍🏻

    Great place for any meal of the day. They have a vegetarian menu if you ask. They keep the room on the left open for walkins, and you can have a drink at the bar while you wait if they're full.

    Such an institution in London. Perfect for breakfast or high tea. Environment is very Art-deco and peculiar. Staff are brilliant with their service and yes they serve the 'best' pancakes in town!

    This is absolutely one of the most charming breathtaking restaurant in London! From a showroom in early 1900s to a phenomenal european restaurant! Afternoon tea is a MUST!

    The space is really nice! Reservation required. Pancake with berries was good but the consistency of the pancake is not what's expected. Croissant was good. Scrambled eggs, not all that!

    Beautiful interior enhances the cappuccino and Eggs Arlington. The coffee and food is fresh, well prepared and nicely presented. Taste is average but this a nice place to start your day.

    One of the best places to have your breakfast or brunch. Always make sure that you book before you go or you will wait at least 30 mins. Their food and service is on spot everything is wonderful

    Had the afternoon tea here. The finger sandwiches and scones were delicious. The pastries were ok. Be sure to ask for fresh pot of tea if you want a refill. Otherwise they just add hot water!

    Good spot for breakfast/brunch. Great staff. The Arlington was amazing; the muffin was just perfect. Pancake was good too. Mozart hot drink wasn't all that.

    They made a mistake with our order but insisted on making it up to us by comp’ing the meal. The manager went above and beyond to make things right. More importantly the food was AMAZING!!

    A legend. Breakfast here should be on everyone's list, arguably the best in London. Steps from The Mayfair to compliment a glam stay. Invite your entourage for eggs Benedict. 5 star experience!

    The black and gold decor means most people look lovely there. Their clothes don't clash with the environment and it's all so understated. Not pretentious at all. Just perfect.Well priced and delicious

    A must try for breakfast in London. The egg florentine was delicious the pancake was not fluffy at all. The service was extremely slow. Will definitely come back on weekdays only.

    Lovely setting, no dress code, extensive menu including bruch, small options on most dishes, a little pricy but well worth it. Pastries made on site. Good speciality coffees. Delicious eggs benedict.

    I love the ambiance. Very much grand cafe a-la-florians. Best breakfast in London in my view. The pastries stand-out. Tables get very crowded...

    Choco sandwich had a nice crunch but dry (needs more chocolate), passionfruit meringue perfectly tangy with an excellent tart base, the crumble is great (sourish) tasted more berries than apples.

    Beautiful, great food and such friendly staff. I told them I was looking for sticky toffee pudding (which they didn’t have) while in London and they found a place nearby and gave me the info!

    Lots of options on the veg menu. The soufflé Suisse was delicious, as was the treacle tart. Don’t worry much about the dress code—some people were pretty casual and some quite dressed up.

    Housed in a former car showroom, and later a branch of Barclays bank, it has vaulted ceilings, polished marble, an art deco interior and the odd celebrity. Read more

    The place for the poshest kind of breakfast. The haggis with fried duck eggs is my favourite! Or if you want something sweet, go for the pancakes.

    Make sure you have the butter croissant and almond croissant, an angle of Paris. Outstanding pancakes too! Can be super busy on weekends so you should book in advance

    You could look inside this place and think it’s been around for a century, but in fact it only opened as a restaurant in 2003. Breakfasts here are a firm favorite among London’s movers and shakers. Read more

    The salmon eggs Benedict remains top notch throughout the years. The salmon rich, eggs perfectly runny, the muffin excellent and the hollandaise sauce just right.

    I was lucky enough to book the very last table for lunch and it was worth the hype. It is noisy, but just like elsewhere in London. I had a tender Welsh lamb and a glass of rosè. Really enjoyed it

    Decide why you want to go. Go for the beautiful building, ambience and relaxed pace. No dress code too. But don't go if you're after good service or stand out food, as there it fails.

    When going for a breakfast, a top recommendation would be the baked bread basket of pastries to share. Their eggs benedict are to die for especially with bacon!
