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.<br/>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.<br/>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.<br/>No hassle, no rush, no skinny- decaff-double-shot-to-go, just a vibrant atmosphere that moves with your moods throughout the day.

I am living locally and went there for breakfast at a weekend. It was not too busy, the food arrived not too fast, but it was really okay. It was not the best breakfast I've ever had, but it was delicious enough to please me on that...more
As all cafe rouges, this one offers the same old same old menu.
Staff at this branch is friendly, and tolerated our slightly rowdy (or speaker-deafened from the previous night's clubbing) lot very kindly.
With quite a bit of competition from nearby Vicky's, Raoul's, Baker & Spice and a few others, I must admit I'm surprised Cafe Rouge get any clients at all. Still, they do.
Cafe Rouge makes a refreshing change from the mass consumer chains of coffee stores that seem to have engulfed us in England over the last couple of years.
With free wireless internet available to customers, it's a great place to conduct a business meeting or just as a freelancer to go with your laptop, get out of the house and work on a few pieces. Cafe Rouge serve a selection of home made...more
