So, there you are exploring London and it’s time for lunch. (Or breakfast or dinner or a light snack). Of course, there are so many places you can go. But how about something a little different this time? Enjoy coffee in a crypt! In Central London, you’ll find the St-Martin-in-the-Fields Café in the Crypt.
Yes, this is a genuine crypt below the famous church. You’ll sit under the high vaulted ceilings and with historic gravestones underfoot as you browse the menu of dishes made on the premises from local and sustainable ingredients. You can also explore the art gallery and bookshop.
There’s even regular music – possibly the most popular being the Wednesday Jazz nights. The food is hearty and an incredibly reasonable price considering that you’re in London. And of course, there are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. And remember that you’re in England so of course afternoon tea is served!
Enjoy homemade sandwiches, fruit scones, cakes and more served with jam and Cornish clotted cream. Plus a pot of tea, naturally. For a surcharge, you can also add a glass of sparkling wine – now that is my cup of tea!
