Nice cool place to refresh on a hot Summer's day

It is a help yourself type of cafe , gets very busy at lunch times but quite down for a refreshing cuppa in the afternoon. Prices are extremely good and the cakes look home made.

Visit this historic site, take the tour, and support their mission and outreach while eating in the historic Cafe in the Crypt. This award winning Cafe uses sustainable resources when possible, has a fresh menu each day, in an atmosphere of 18th century architecture with history all around you (literally beneath your feet).

This is typical cafe fare for the UK. The coffee and tea ok, the hot meal of the day interesting and worth having. We had the veggie special of the day (gnocchi) and enjoyed it. The surroundings are what makes this cafe special. The crypt is fabulous, in great shape and cool when it is hot outdoors. The loos are... More

Wedding Anniversary Mini Break Review... Went to the Crypt restaurant on our first morning in the city (22/7/15) and it was one of the best breakfasts ever. The service was superb, smiles and greetings which matched the food of a extremely high cooked standard by expert chefs. Looking amazing on the plate and tasting amazing it was a full English...

Stumbled across this cafe and must recommend. The food was simple but very good, the staff were wonderful, the setting great and the prices very reasonable. All profits go to the church. You would not want to visit a chain cafe when you can sit outside and relax before continuing your tour of London. Search this cafe out you won't... More

great place for a chicken Panini or coffee with a seat in the sun ( inside if you are trying to stay cool), all profits to the worthy cause at St Martins. Lots of seats inside under an atmospheric roof. Efficient service.

We love the good and healthy food served there with a great amount of friendliness. Many people love to come there and the those working there never seems stressed. My only complaint is that the chairs are very low in relation to the tables so that it feels a bit awkward to eat in that position. But the prices are... More

Sat outside in the outdoor cafe, staff very professional and service tip top, food great and not badly priced. Great spot when the sun is out and a lot quieter than other spots in the centre of town

I used to love this place and was really looking forward to eating there but it seems to have gone downhill. Vegetarian meal came with overcooked and tasteless broccoli which was yellowing and old, and a limp salad. Fish and chips didn't look good. An elderly woman on the next table complained to about her hard and dry apple crumble... More
