“Lunch in a Crypt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Had a very good lunch in this cafe in the crypt. Was busy but able to find a table. Was a unique area to eat a lunch in. We have found while traveling that if a church has a cafe, try it. Most times it will be a good choice food and pricewise.

“Great Location & Ambience, Really Good Food, Inexpensive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Historical St Martins in the Fields church is deservedly world-renowned, partly for its wonderful acoustics and regular concerts (often 'free at lunchtime' 1pm) by leading musicians and groups; well worth a visit and located right on Trafalgar Square...in the heart of London and just by Chinatown (also has worship in Mandarin and Cantonese). Undiscovered by many is its excellent Cafe in the Crypt...underneath the church itself...open daily for breakfast, lunch, tea, or dinner. The food is quite good (won Les Routiers UK 'Cafe of the Year' 2012 ), cafeteria style, and seating is beneath lovely, graceful arches supporting the main building. If mobility is a concern, use the North side ramp and 'lift' (futuristic elevator)...don't miss browsing the tasteful gift shop or trying a brass rubbing... all profits support charities. Charing Cross is closest 'tube', less than 5 minutes away. Highly recommend...a real favorite every London visit!

“Excellent fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The cafe serves excellent fresh food at reasonable prices. It is busy but friendly and one could comfortably eat there alone.

“Tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

It was fascinating to know this cafeteria-style restaurant is where there were crypts housed. A unique experience, and good food!
