We were here for breakfast twice on a recent trip to Inverness. The food is fresh and delicious and there is something for everyone including a plethora of gluten free options. The service is friendly and the prices are very affordable. Highly recommended!

In the two months since I moved to Inverness, this has been my favourite place for a traditional, cooked breakfast. Infact, it does a better breakfast than the famous local, luxury hotel my employer put me in for two weeks. A measure of a good cooked breakfast is the quality of the sausages and Rendezous's are very good. They are... More

Sometimes you need a fry up. Sometimes you need a good cup of tea, a choice of 6 breakfast components and a hearty start to the day. When you are gluten free it's always disappointing not to have toast etc. Here they give you the gluten free bread option across the menu and for once I don't feel like I... More

Perfect for a hungover cooked breakfast. Choose your items and a free sympathy coffee, maybe that was just for me! Central and reasonable

I moved to Inverness in January and wanted to find a friendly cafe which served wonderful coffee. I walked into Rendezvous Cafe on my 2nd day of being in Inverness and have been visiting the cafe nearly every day since I arrived. Giving myself extra time to walk to the cafe, enjoy my coffee and have a chat with the... More

I stopped for lunch here yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at the choice of Gluten free options available. I could order any of their sandwiches on Gluten Free Bread and chose smoked salmon with cream cheese; I was given a choice of coleslaw or salad to accompany the sandwich and I chose the salad which came with potato crisps. I... More

My girlfriend and I went into town for some shopping and decided to have a quick bite to eat for lunch. We were greeted with a friendly hello as we walked in and then everything went downhill. We sat in a booth by the entrance which had a stained table. The window sill was quite dirty (dusty, empty plastic bottles,... More

We had 3 lunches here and enjoyed the soup and cheesie sandwich combination. Wonderful soup and the brown bread for the cheesie sandwich is great. Owner is a very friendly guy who truly loves his business. Waitresses are superb. Prices are so very reasonable. We enjoyed the cauliflower soup and the broccoli soup. Just wonderful soups. All are homemade daily.

Late one morning, in a side-street near downtown Inverness, we chanced upon The Rendezvous Café, a great place for breakfast & lunch. It's small--7 tables inside, 2 outside--so you might have to wait awhile, but it's worth it. The menu features traditional Scottish fare like haggis, black pudding and tattie (potato) scones, but they also serve sandwiches, pasta dishes, and... More
