About us

The French Café is an independent, all-day venue owned and run by Chef, David Healey, who mastered French classical cuisine at Westminster College. Before opening The French Café, he ran a bistro in Wimbledon which was voted into the Top Ten in London by readers of The Good Food Guide.

David is passionate about food, ‘I try to offer delicious, reasonably-priced food, in feel-good surroundings for my customers to enjoy. In fact, I’m aiming to be recognised as one of the best-value restaurants in London’

The French Café is tucked away down a tree-lined side road, but still thrives due to its consistently high standards of food and friendly attentive service.

The menu is authentic French bistro fare, prepared using local, top quality ingredients. The robust French flavours and classic dishes are what David loves to create. “I am not looking for Michelin stars – just very happy customers who keep returning.”

The French café opened in 2009 and has built a strong reputation, which has led to it being voted best local restaurant in Tooting and receiving the Trip Advisor certificate of excellence 3 years running.
