Commerce and spirit can live together harmoniously. Here’s an off-the-beaten-track place only 10 feet from the throngs. The Church of St Martin-in-the-Fields is right on Trafalgar Square. Underneath lies Café in the Crypt, now a cool and welcoming café. Tables are on top of ancient gravestones. The atmosphere isn’t creepy, but instead very historically remarkable.
