Café Rouge was launched in Richmond, London, in 1989 by Karen Jones and Roger Myers, foodies on a mission to recreate real French food and wine in a Parisienne bistro style setting. Rouge was also the fave hangout for Bridget and friends in ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’, the novel that helped make us a household name. Today we continue to recreate core classics like Steak Frites, Poulet Breton, Moules and Confit de Canard as well as croques, salads and baguettes available to enjoy... with a gorgeous glass of French wine.
Our chefs and our food are at the heart of everything we do. Duncan McKewan, Executive Chef, is constantly checking our kitchens of excellence and liaising with head chefs to ensure all our authentic dishes are the best. We use great fresh ingredients, traditional French kitchen cooking methods and classic Rouge recipes all day every day.
Something wonderful happens each time you have a cup of coffee at Café Rouge – we donate 5p from every coffee sold direct to NSPCC.
