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.

It's reasonably priced (plus, there's always a deal on somewhere!) and I love having a...more
After a nasty encounter with a Cafe Rouge fish dish (Greenwich branch) a few years ago, I don't tend to eat main meals in Cafe Rouge, but as a place to go for coffee, the Blackheath branch is good. Last time I dropped in, I got an excellent coffee, and - after a short wait - a large, well warmed croissant in its own basket complete with a mini jar of jam and some some butter. Top marks for...more
Part of the chain but quite nice due to proximity to the Heath and a Cosy feel inside. A safe bet if that's what you want.more
As far as chain restaurants go, Cafe Rouge is usually pretty reliable. Offering anglicised French fare, one is usually guaranteed a decent meal. I particularly like the look of this branch o Cafe Rouge from the outside as with the facade adn the lighting it looks a bit more typically French (at least in my mind).
