This is my other spot that I always stop at when in London - lowest level of Church of St. Martin in the Fields, simple but delicious fare - soups, pies, roasted veg, and wonderful sweets. Quiet place to enjoy a yummy and economical lunch or dinner, then up the stairs to enjoy a concert in the church (free concerts... More

How many times have I walked by the glass entrance to the Crypt café and ignored it? Yesterday a friend recommended we lunch here, and I've found a new favourite. The food is scrumptious and the prices very reasonable; the staff are friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is friendly and there is something about the vaulted ceilings that is almost... More

We stopped here with our two grandchildren whilst taking them to London for their first trip. I explained to them that it is best to support cafes similar to this one, rather than Costa and Starbucks etc. Although the cafe was packed we easily found a table and drinks were served quickly after a short wait in the queue. We... More

Brilliant location for gallery space next to this cafe. I went to see an exhibition by Annulus and it was just fantastic. Great art showcase.

Te only tin I like more tan crypts is cafes in crypts. The food was lovely and not touristic in quality or price. It's good value in a very touristy neighborhood and an evocative historic location. And it subsidizes the free concert you may have Just listened to upstairs. There is a terrific gravestone exhibit if you're in the mood... More

This cafeteria is right next to National Gallery. You can find an affordable and healthy meal here in the very expensive area.

I usually eat here before or after my visit to the Royal Opera House. I love the ambience and setting. The crypt has been fully restored, and the pillars and arches are a marvel to look at. The atmosphere is very relaxed: you can take your time and chat or read a book or a paper without being made to... More

Whenever we attend concerts at St Martin's in the Fields, we eat in the cafe before or after the event, as well as when we are in the area on other occasions. On the most recent visit, a friend and I ate boxed salad lunches (Tuna Nicoise and Chicken Caesar respectively) in the Cafe in the Courtyard on a sunny... More
