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 love Cafe Rouge! The Duck was always my favourite but what I had today was very disappointing.
The duck was served with chopped up carrots, in cleaned asparagus, French beans and boiled potatoes ..... Hardly gourmet.
The old menu was MUCH Better!!!more
Fantastic staff. I left my corporate credit card here after breakfast one day and went back hoping it had been found. Not only had they found it and put it to one side in a clearly labelled envelope, they had tried to notify me by email. I was very impressed by how seriously they took the situation and how well they handled it. They even gave me a cappuccino on the house!

One of the worst Cafe Rouge locations, ever. It's close to LSE for an alternative to the normal lunch options. Yet, with Bill's just opening across the street, I'd rather go there.
The service is sad. The waiters constantly look like they want to just quit their job as they don't want to be there...which is rude to patrons.
Ordered the steak and frites for lunch- frites had way too much...more
Holborn Branch, You are the weakest link, good bye.
This is one of the bigger cafe rouge's I've visited, (as opposed to the one in Canterbury) and I'm disappointed.
My entourage (Fine, Friends) and I rolled in for a REEEEAAAALLLY late lunch at 3pm, the restaurant was pretty empty, and I'm guessing the wait staff were pretty tired but STILL, some professionalism, guys?! We waited 20 minutes...more
