St Martin-in-the-Fields is a vibrant, open and inclusive church at the heart of London. Cafe in the Crypt inside the Crypt there is a warm welcome awaiting you with beautiful 18th century architecture brick-vaulted ceilings, historic tombstones beneath your feet and delicious home-cooked food to feast your eyes and stomach on.
Cafe in the Crypt is a very warm, intimate but also an active place inviting people in a hectic urban environment to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Underground location with no windows gives it a cave like feeling and increasing intensity. The heavy brick walls hide noise and increase the feeling of being protected.
As the cities grow horizontally in density, new directions are opening up for development. Instead of going vertically up, growing down underground is getting more and more popular.
