Located in the crypt of St Martin’s, at the edge of Trafalgar Square, this welcoming and hidden café has been a favourite of tourists and locals alike for 30 years.  Original brick-vaulted ceilings and historic tombstones lining the floor provide the backdrop to a varied selection of freshly prepared, value for money food throughout the day.

We're back!

The Café in the Crypt is now open again.

It is the perfect place if you’re looking for somewhere quiet to sit and work or have a small meeting.

Covid safety: Our Crypt benefits from a good ventilation system which circulates fresh air from outside into the space via pumps/extractors
