    Longtime Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey usually has his Sunday roast--an early-afternoon meal of meat and potatoes--at this café, located on London's famous Picadilly Blvd.

    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

    Even though this restaurant doesn't specialize in traditional British goods, there are still some classic dishes (like the treacle tart) that are to die for.

    Don't forget you can always rock up without a reservation, have a drink at the bar and get a table. Shhhhhhhh.

    The Wolseley's ever-glam, eclectic space and the "beautiful people" crowd make for happy dining. Their decadent afternoon tea is one of the most stylish in town. Read more · October 25, 2011

    I love the food at the Wolseley. Famous among the stars, however, they do live up to their expectations. The price isn't shocking and the service and decor is a thumbs up from me.

    This Mayfair cafe serves a classic English breakfast complete with baked beans and black pudding.

    The old Wolesley car showroom on Piccadilly. Best tables are at the back of the room up the stairs. They're like little Salon Privés looking down on the restaurant and are great for people watching! Read more

    This formal restaurant is a great place for breakfast or afternoon tea, and has a surprising extensive menu! The excellent staff will really make you feel welcome. Be sure to book a table in advance!

    Decent eggs florentine, delicious pancakes with berries! Even without adding maple syrup. Can be crowded, better to book first

    The Croque Monsieur is excellent in quality but lacking in quantity! Menu says 'No Photography' so technically this photo is illegal :-)

    Very strict time limits on the tables. Only eat three courses if you don't mind indigestion.

    Try boiled eggs and marmite soldiers. Highly recommend

    The Eggs Benedict is a great starter. Rib eye steak was tender, but for melt in the mouth meat, go for the lamb.

    Very nice place, great ambience and posh good food.. Celeb factor, if it matters for you.. The scallops, cauliflower mash, food and wine are fine! If you like, Schnitzel is the best in town they say

    I know this place is supposed to have great service and food but I have to call it like I see it... Service was average at best, food was slightly better than service.

    This Viennese style cafe has been popular for decades. Be sure to observe the beautiful marble floors and winding staircases. If you are interested, you should stay late for caviar and lobster!

    If you go for a steak and like yours medium (pink) consider ordering medium-rare which is pink, rather than reddish.

    The chicken and tarragon salad is fantastic (ask for dressing on the side!)

    Often cited as one of the best places for afternoon tea, but I'd only give 4/5. Best to book in advance on weekends. Staff friendly enough. Good boozing and brunch to be had.

    Go on Wednesday for lunch or dinner and try the 'plat du jour' : a fantastic Carbonnade of beef. Simply amazing.
