This amazing café is a great find. It's well located, affordable and serves good food and should be on every tourist's radar. It's located in the basement of St. Martin in the Field church on the edge of Trafalger Square, just next to the National Gallery.

They have done a great job modernizing this cavern into a modern cafeteria. Possibly the cheapest English breakfast served here, in Convent Garden. There's also a great value lunch/dinner menu as well!more

The con - pretty much everything else. It is a pretty standard cafeteria with primarily pre-packaged foods, some fresh made options that get scooped up for your tray along the queue, and (in my experience) staff who would prefer if you could move along as quickly as possible. Even for...more
