Food: The Cafe In The Crypt

LondonEating & DrinkingCafes & Coffee Shops

I LOVE St Martin-in-the-Field’s café in the crypt. It’s so wonderfully weird.

Yes, it’s a café in a crypt. Yes, underground. With old tombstones on the floor.

You might think it sounds a little creepy, but it really isn’t. Café in the Crypt is cosy, quirky and charming. They serve refreshments pretty much all day, with meals available at lunch and dinner. Whilst choice of food is fairly limited (one meat/fish dish or one vege dish, or a selection of cold salads etc.) it is always top notch quality, and reasonably priced.

Yesterday, as they were in the area, my mum, aunty and I went there for a lunch of fish and chips, with mushy peas and freshly made tartar sauce. Far too big a portion to finish on one’s own, and only £8 for the privilege. The menu changes daily.

It’s a buffet cart affair, so don’t go there expecting table service.

The Crypt also has a gift shop, art gallery space, brass rubbing and host live music events (notably their jazz night’s). Well worth a visit.
