With a combination of delicious food, great wines and a real ambience, Café Rouge has embodied the style and je ne sais quoi of French dining since it opened way back in 1989.Now with over 90 sites across the country it's just the place to mull over the morning papers with a cafe au lait and a croissant, pop in for a spot of lunch, share a post-work drink or relax over an evening meal.The menu covers a range of French classics from croques and baguettes, ideal for a quick and easy snack, to more substantial fare such as steak frites and boeuf bourguignon. Likewise, the wines are predominately French; many made by lesser known producers, and provide the perfect accompaniment to the food on offer.No hassle, no rush, no skinny- decaff-double-shot-to-go, just a vibrant atmosphere that moves with your moods throughout the day.

The location is perfect and the building suits, would go again and again!more
The best thing this branch of Cafe Rouge has going for it is it's location. This stretch of Hampstead High Street could easily be in Paris with loads of pseudo-French cafes lining both pavements.
Cafe Rouge is one of the original chains of this type and hasn't really changed since the 90's, I think even the menu is still more or less the same. Perfect if - like me - you are a fan of croque...more
When staying with a friend in Hampstead, we wanted to get a late dinner. Everything was closing down on the High Street, so we decided to give Cafe Rouge a try. The service was fast and efficient, and the food was great. Definitely a place I would come back to.more
Having lived out of the UK for much of last year, it is a treat to see London and the rest of this grey and peasant land with fresh eyes. One of the aspects of this that I particularly enjoy doing is visiting a lots of places that I would not normally have visited around London and the wider English towns.
Well, doing these things, it is often necessary to grab a bite to eat. Sometimes there...more
