Standing out on Colchester’s High Street with its red frontage, Café Rouge serves a menu of delightful French cuisine. Housed in a traditional English building, Café Rouge’s cosy interior complete with red banquettes reflects its Parisian origins.

As part of the nationwide chain of Café Rouge restaurants, this branch offers their range of classic French dishes such as confit duck, beef bourguignon, steak frites and mussels. Smaller dishes are also on offer for a lighter bite. Particularly good value for money are the set menus for lunch and dinner (available most days). To accompany the food there is also a good range of French wines, many from less well known producers.

In true French style, breakfast is also an important meal at Café Rouge. With croissants, pain au chocolat, omelettes and croques, as well as hot chocolate, tea and all types of coffees, it makes a great start to the day.

In the heart of Colchester, Café Rouge is a 5-minute walk from the Lion Walk shopping centre
