s far as classic, good-for-everything establishments go, it’s hard to beat the Wolseley. The breakfasts here are an essential London experience, and you’ll get brownie points for life if you take the in-laws here for afternoon tea. It’s an impressive space, all high ceilings and marble columns, which is also part of the fun. If you’ve never been, definitely go for the pastries (the Cannelés Bordelais cakes are winners) or the omelette Arnold Bennett.
