Fodor's Expert Review The Wolseley

$$$ St. James's Austrian

A glitzy procession of famous faces, media moguls, and hedge-funders comes for the spectacle, swish service, and soaring elegance at this bustling Viennese-style grand café on Piccadilly. Located in a former Wolseley Motors luxury-car showroom, this brasserie begins its long decadent days with breakfast at 7 am (8 am at weekends) and serves Dual Monarchy delights until 11:30 pm. Don't be shy about popping by (they welcome walk-ins) for dishes like Hungarian goulash, Austrian pork belly, chicken soup with dumplings, or Wiener schnitzel. For dessert, go for the luscious Kaiserschmarren (caramelized pancakes with stewed fruit and raisins) or Black Forest gâteaux, and don't forget to return to savor the Viennoiserie pastries for classy Afternoon Tea.
