Cafe Below

You will find a number of brunch spots near St Paul’s Cathedral, and our first choice is just five minutes away on foot. Cafe Below is found in the medieval crypt of St Mary le Bow Church, and is a breakfast spot with a difference. We recommend their amazing home-baked rye bread or, if you fancy something a little more luxe, their river farm smoked salmon and brioche French toast is a treat.
