The Passage Café

About The Passage Café

Tucked away on the cobblestoned Jerusalem Passage in Clerkenwell, near London’s Farringdon and Barbican tube stations, The Passage Café is a bijou French/Belgian fusion bistro serving up tasty Gallic treats. The restaurant has a cosy neighbourhood café atmosphere, and is popular with local office workers for working lunches during the day, hip locals for relaxed evening meals, and The Passage Café hosts cooking lessons every Monday night. Popular items from The Passage Café’s short but sweet menu include the classic Maroilles cheese soufflé with sauce vierge; the savoury Crêpe Provençale made with aubergines, courgettes, tomatoes, garlic and basil (available at lunch only); and the selection of desserts - our favourite is the crêpe Normande 'au Calva'.
