Café Rouge has launched an experimental new format at its latest site in Victoria Place, with a focus on food-to-go to tempt commuters and shoppers.

In a nod to its position in a transport hub, the new site features free WiFi and a large communal table fitted with power points for commuters who want to work while they eat or drink.

Customers can choose from the French-style dine-in menu or a takeaway menu of fresh pastries, baguettes and croques. A rotisserie – the first in a Café Rouge restaurant – offers freshly roasted chicken for customers to eat in or take home.

In another Café Rouge first, the site features a shop full selling French treats such as olive oil, wine and champagne, craft beer, Café Rouge coffee bricks, hot chocolate tins, as well as bread boards and copper pans.

Edyta Pytel, general manager at Café Rouge Victoria Place said: “Victoria Place is right in the middle of a transport hub, with tourists, local residents, local employees, commuters, shoppers and the pre-theatre crowd passing through – a huge potential audience, and this has encouraged us to create something a little different for our new site.

“We wanted to provide more of a grab and go offering for the thousands of people who visit Victoria every day but may not have time to stop for a meal, while our shop is a completely new venture for us and one we feel will prove popular with those looking to create a French feast at home, or pick up a quick gift.”
