Al fresco dining in our sunny courtyard, inside is cosy in winter and air conditioned in summer. Winners of the Excellence in Customer Service award in the 2013 Waipa Business Awards.

We serve breakfast until 2.30pm daily, lunch from 11.30am until 2.30pm, and cabinet food until 4pm.

Our coffee is second to none, or you can sample the wine and beer on offer. We’re also well known for our cinnamon brioche and delicious sandwiches – made on our own rye and grain breads.

We work hard to serve what we think of as the complete cafe experience – fresh, tasty food, delicious espresso coffee, good wine, great service and a stylish, relaxing atmosphere.

Our mission at Rouge is to provide all this in a way that is good for the community and has a positive impact on everyone we deal with. We are a certified conscious consumers business, and use only free-range eggs, bacon, ham and chicken.

Our practices were acknowledged recently when we received the Excellence in Sutainability award at the Waipa Networks Business Awards 2014.
