A camel train of stars come for the always-on show spectacle and soaring elegance at this bustling Viennese-style grand café on Piccadilly. Framed with 1920s black laquerware, this all-day brasserie, a few doors down from The Ritz, begins its long decadent days with breakfast at 7 am and serves highly dependable Dual Monarchy delights until midnight. Don't be shy to turn up on spec (they hold seats back for walk-ins) to enjoy such highlights as Hungarian goulash, Austrian
pork belly, chicken soup with a salt-beef sandwich, eggs Benedict, kedgeree, or breaded Wiener schnitzel. For dessert, go for luscious kaiserschmarren—caramelized pancakes with stewed fruit and raisins—and don't forget to book a return table to savor the Viennoiserie pastries at one of their classy £10.75 to £23.75 Afternoon Teas. Reservations are recommended.
