My family an I went shopping in blackburn but we're unimpressed with the places to eat during our trip. We saw a sign for the crypt and went in. The cathedral is stunning but the food was even better! We enjoyed drinks and food at very reasonable prices and the portions were very good. Staff made the experience even better. Very accommodating and very tasty food. Will definitely be going again.

So different to your normal cafe, even the walk through the cathedral is nice to reach the cafe which is downstairs.
All diners seemed happy, and their portions looked a good size, order at the counter, and go to your table.
Home made Broccoli and Stilton soup was delicous and the Roast beef sandwich was good too, at £6.45 value for money.
They have a good number of specials and you get the feeling they will be special here, staff are pleasant, nothing is too much trouble.
Lots of locally sourced food used as well, cannot wait to visit my brother again soon in Blackburn, no doubt we will eat there again.
A very relaxing place, well done.

Well, without a doubt this is the best place in Blackburn. Everything is made to order. The Mediterranean veggie panini is the best I have had, the portion size, well you know you have eaten that's for sure. My daughter had the biggest ham salad I have ever seen. The atmosphere is calm quiet and just lovely. This is not a fast food eat up and get out place, order at 12 food on the table at 12.05.It is a take you time enjoy the atmosphere the food and chat, even partake in a glass of wine if one so wishes. Such a relaxing place. If you have tried the rest go here and sample the best. You won't be disappointed.

We went to Blackburn to visit the new market, we were not impressed a lot of the old character had disappeared.We had a walk around the town centre had a great coffee in costa Coffee very nice.Then we came upon the Cathedral advertising the crypt cafe we went in not expecting what we actually found.The food was excellent the choice was so varied spoilt for choice. Would recommend this to anybody visiting Blackburn.
