Cafe in the Crypt, London

very popular London cheap eat is in a 300-year old...crypt! Yes! Cafe in the Crypt, in St. Martin-in-the-Fields church, offers nice crumbles, afternoon tea & much more under lovely brick arches.

You can pop in for live jazz or just enjoy dining atop bodies :) (Charles II's famed mistress, Nell Gwyn, is somewhere there).

kinda creepy but sounds interesting!

Jude said...

Hi Kat - that was my initial reaction too! But the butter pudding and crumble - and architecture - are worth checking out :)

HI Lisa - thanks so much (and also for, haha, sharing this *oddity* of a post on August Break :))! It's a nice spot, weirdly...hope you'll have a chance to visit (and I'm visualizing the amazing photos you'd get! :))

Now I want to go eat here.
Thanks for sharing this. The architecture is worth taking a peak.

Hi Ashley - yes, while it's not haute cuisine, it's lively, fun and affordable (for London!) - with the bonus lovely, brick-vaulted arches :) Thanks so much for dropping by!
