About The French Café
About the restaurant
With a kitchen commanded by an alumni of Westminster College’s esteemed course in classical French cookery, The French Cafe walks the walk and talks the talk when it comes to its esteemed, namesake genre of European cuisine. Yet, at the same time, owner and head chef David Healey has established a neighbourhood restaurant and cafe that straddles the southern border of south London’s Balham and the upper reaches of Tooting Bec that favourably lacks one sticky element of French gastronomy – pretension. Established in 2009 and counting a consistently approving contingent of the capital’s gourmets among its daily clientele, The French Cafe’s Ritherdon Road address is deeply in-demand for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and group bookings – beat the crowds and book a table today.
