My partner and I had a really lovely meal there over the weekend. All the food was really lovely and the waiter James was attentive but not too attentive :) Very friendly. Will definitely go back. Thanks James.

It was very busy when we had a meal at Cafe Rouge recently at lunchtime, and although James was the only one serving he was charming and very helpful. The food was delicious and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Nice atmosphere too.

Nice breakfast - sourdough toast, avocado, spinach, cheese ... sat outside on a sunny morning in the Lanes which is a nice area of Brighton. Friendly and fast service. Two breakfasts and a cup of tea was £15 not including service.
