Wait, that might be bad.

The Cafe in The Crypt is a little hidden gem hidden in plain sight. It rests, as most crypts do, below a church. St. Martin In The Field to be exact, the giant church across the street from Trafalgar Square (you may have passed it many times without realizing that's what it was called.)
