Checking out Europe House

As part of the Charlemagne Prize, yours truly received an invitation to meet the UK jury that had picked and sent us to Aachen for the final round. So, for a few hours, we decided to put on suits and leave behind the bohemian life of a E&M editor, to be introduced to members of the European Parliament.

To celebrate our Britishness, we decided to kickstart the day with a hearty breakfast at Regency Cafe, 17-19 Regency Street. Unlike what the name might suggest, the place is truly down to earth. Breakfast comes in the flavours of "Omelette & Chips", "Ham Bagel & Chips", and "Sausage, Beans, Tomatoes and Chips", you get the idea. And it is actually really yummy!
