This landmark church crypt with its brick-vaulted ceilings, pillars and gravestones on the floor is not a place one would put a cafe there. St Martins in the Field Cafe is the home for the Cafe at the Crypt, certainly strange and a bit disconcerting sitting at talbles and chairs placed over and amoung the gravesites of people long ago. We arrived early to have a traditional "English Breakfast" for very little money.

Typical Prices in BPS (British Pound Sterling):
Hot Main Course 5.95-7.50 includes three vegetables
Main Course Salads 6.75
House wine 2.95 per glass or 11.50 per bottle

Opening Times:
Monday - Wednesday 8.00am - 8.00pm
Thursday - Saturday 8.00am - 10.30pm
Sunday 12 noon - 8.00pm

Favorite Dish: The traditional English breakfast consisted of: beans, scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, black pudding, and mushrooms, the 2 latter items I graciously declined. Kristi (dabs) who is what I would classify as an "epicuriean" tried the black pudding prior to asking Stace (beach_dog) what is was. She did not finish it but I give her credit for a good "try" which is more than I would have done.
