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.

Greenwich is one of the many trendy bustling towns in London and the location of this cafe rouge takes you away from the busy side of life and makes you feel like your in a mystical land of good coffee and croissants.
Mouth watering french cuisine with an extensive menu of world wines. I cannot fault this restaurant one bit! The outdoor area is a reasonable size and very accessible - a nice...more
As a franchise restaurant, Greenwich's Cafe Rouge delivers consistently on the level of service and expectation one would expect from this type of establishment.
Great place to go for coffee, lunch or dinner and particularly wonderful if you have little ones.more
I'm not usually a huge fan of chain restaurants. There really isn't a huge need to go the them in London. Especially not when they look like fake Paris. But the Cafe Rouge in Greenwich is actually pretty great.
It's not like a Cafe Rouge at all. Seriously. There is another branch in Blackheath, and one over the river in Canary Wharf, and they feel plasticy. This branch doesn't.
