Leafi Kitchens & Event Catering has launched a new mobile take-away sandwich unit at its Smith Square Café & Restaurant in a bid to raise the profile of the venue.

Operating in the foyer of the restaurant, the new unit will offer a food and hot and cold beverage offer throughout the day. It is expected to draw more attention to the Smith Square Café & Restaurant itself, which is located in the crypt of the St John's Smith Square Concert Hall, a Grade I-listed church in Westminster, London.

The restaurant offers lunch on weekdays and dinner on concert evenings, and a choice of either waiter service or a self-service buffet.

Liam Farrell, co-founder of Leafi, said: "Smith Square Café & Restaurant truly is one of the capital's hidden gems, serving fantastic food and drink in an amazing setting. But its discreet location means that many people visiting the area don't know that it's there or that Leafi provides in-house catering for local businesses, be it breakfasts, lunches or afternoon teas.

"We think the mobile sandwich unit will help us address that by creating a presence that's highly visible at street level."
