The Cafe in the Crypt at St Martins in the Fields

Sure it's an uber-tourist trap but the Cafe in the Crypt at St Martins in the Fields is atmospheric, and though a little expensive, it's very convenient if you find yourself in Trafalgar Square and hungry.

We are told that all dishes are prepared and cooked on site, using the highest quality and freshest ingredients sourced from local and UK based suppliers, and their afternoon tea, where £5.25 will buy you a scone with jam and Cornish clotted cream, a slice of madeira cake and double chocolate fudge cake with tea or coffee, sounds very reasonable for this area of town.

The cafe is open Monday - Wednesday 8am - 8pm, Thursday - Saturday until 9pm and sundays from 11am - 6pm. For more information, visit http://www2.stmartin-in-the-fields.org/page/cafe/cafe.html

  1. Cuando estoy en Londres me encanta comer o merendar en la Cripta de St Martin.
    El menú varía a diario y aunque es un poquito caro merece la pena. De postre recomiendo el Crème brûlée, ¡está buenísimo!

  2. Funnily enough I went there on Monday, having been once before, ages ago. The food is fantastic, and very reasonably priced. Brilliant venue too.

  3. I must visit again soon as last week heard a very interesting lecture by Eric Parry of the architectural firm in charge of the re-design.

  4. I lived in London a couple of years and I had many opportunities to visit that place but i didnt know about it until now,... By the way I am from Madeira and I think you mean "a slice of madeira cake" not "a slice of madiera cake"...
