Vintage Parisian style runs through the veins of this mid-range French café, with its red velvet banquettes, etched mirrors and chequerboard floor. The theme continues on the all-day brasserie menu, which majors in classics like 35-day aged steak-frites, moules marinières and bouillabaisse, or a quick croque monsieur. Café Rouge makes a good port of call for early arrivals to the check-in desks. Ask one of the apron-clad staff for a table with space for luggage.
