    Sit back with an afternoon cup of Earl Grey and crumpets. On the go? In addition to a la carte dining, passersby can stop for hot bacon sandwiches and frankfurters at a take-out counter.

    The Delaunay is the new sibling of The Wolseley, and shares many of its key traits – a strong sense of occasion, smooth service, grand room, retro European menu. Read more

    The food arrives. Howard Hodgkin slices his frankfurters thinly and eats small forkfuls, adding a little mash, and delivers this verdict: “A great new restaurant, very straightforward.”

    Whatever you choose, expect to be served the most fine version of it. And most importantly the ambience will make you feel you are in a top class European capital.

    Weiner Schnitzel (Time Out London's 100 Best Dishes)

    New restaurant from the folk behind the Ivy & the Wolseley. Very much in the same spirit. Coffee and eggs benedict just as good but a lot easier to get a table - at the moment anyway...

    A bastion of London loveliness and brunch brilliance since 2003, it has been the backdrop for many a hedge fund lunch gone on five hours too long. Read more

    Try the chicken schnitzel sandwich with a Stiegl Lager. Delicious! The non-alc alternative: half apple juice, half sparkling water.

    Great sausage menu, very accommodating for fast prix fixe dinners. Lighting is quite bright, so not the coziest.

    Try the Wieber Schnitzel with potato salad and pickled cucumber for an authentic Austrian experience.

    Salt beef pretzel makes a light and tasty lunch, but watch out - the server was liberal with the hot English mustard.

    Jennifer Whitehead · April 20, 2012

    Try the salt beef bagel - a treat that lives with the Jan diet plan.

    Espresso was ok, English breakfast as well. Fine traditional interior design. Pastries are to die for especially the cheese cake - love it! Schnitzel with dip?? - it's a no-go! Sorry!

    Wiener Schnitzels, strudel, and Salzburg soufflé, served in an elegant space marked by wood-paneled walls, green leather banquettes, and lots of glistening brass fittings. Read more

    Great place! Very pleasant service! I had a steak and my partner had the chicken schnietzel. Both were delicious! Their creamy mash is amazing!

    Portions are overwhelming, my ghoulash would have fed the table of 4. Hate that level of waste and it's just off putting.

    Love this place, but the scrambled eggs are terrible. Too much butter and too finely chopped. Tasted like instant eggs with a horrible texture.

    Try the omelette Arnold Bennett, exceptional!
