A lovely setting but really just like an office or school canteen. We didn't eat here so cannot comment on the food, but the coffee was certainly not to our taste. Left the coffee and made a quick exit

Cafe in the Crypt can be approached from a glass structure on the left side of the Church of St Martin in The Fields. It is a huge space with a fan vaulted brick ceiling. Food is very reasonably priced and good. They serve beautiful home made soups and bread, a limited number of main courses and a couple of... More

I didn't know the place existed until taken there by a friend, on the way the the national Portrait Gallery. Excellent coffee and snacks. Service was very good and the prices were very reasonable. I recommend the place without qualm!

Came here because of a recommendation but found the found passable but nothing to rave about. The space is unique and lovely to look at but would not go back for the food. Their warm desserts which many gave a thumbs up to I found underwhelming, the saving grace was the generous custard that accompanied the less than stellar berry... More

Recommended in Rick Steves' guidebook. We actually found this gem on Trafalgar Square near the end of our trip but still managed to eat dinner here twice. They had a Theater Special which included an entrée, dessert, and glass of wine for under 16 pounds. Food was excellent! portions were huge and they had lots of free ice water!

We popped in here twice during our stay in London. It is mediocre food, at best, in a great setting. It was the convenience and quiet that drew us back the second time (and the internet), but next time I'll just go across the street to the Pret a Manger.

Take an hour out and enjoy the architecture and the food at the cafe in the crypt. If you are lucky there may be a recital on at st Martin's in the field. The cafe can be busy, however, good food, good service and an enjoyable place for lunch or early evening meal.

We didn't eat here but rather came here for the Jazz in the Crypt Night. We had been able to reserve our table ahead of time and enjoyed a wonderful local group. We enjoyed them so much, my dad bought two of their CDs.

The Cafe in the Crypt offers meals all day long. We especially enjoy the mid-day offerings of soups and dessert. Bread pudding, berry dishes, all very fresh and hot. There is also a terrific gift shop on the same level. Upstairs, you can attend a noon time concert most days. And worship on Sunday! a great combination.
