2 starving adults and 2 fussy children made to feel very welcome in this movie inspired cafe. Breakfast was fresh cooked to your order so changes were easy. Good range of choices with vegetarian and gluten free on offer as standard. We had Scottish cooked breakfast and it was delicious. Huge plates of piping hot food. Kids loved the black... More

What an absolute gem. This cafe offers gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian options. I am gluten and dairy intolerant but my husband is not so it is rare to find somewhere that fully caters for all.

We popped in here on a drizzly grey day not expecting anything great for lunch but we were so pleasantly surprised when the staff and food (& coffee) were just perfect. Would definitely recommend it to all who like food and good customer service.

I've been to 'The Rendezvous Cafe' in Inverness. It is a lovely place with great food. The best coffee in Scotland. It is beautifully designed with many black white pictures from classic movies. There is always a movie on the screen. Lovely people are coming there. The service is very generous, the prices are great as well.

A nice traditional cafe. I've only eaten breakfast here, but the menu has a huge variety. If you're looking for a full Scottish breakfast or just a bowl of museli, it's the place to come! The place is full of locals and tourists so it has a nice buzz. The staff are friendly and service is quick.

We called for breakfast and were greeted cheerily by the staff and our order was quickly taken. The full breakfast was top-notch, but if you want something less calorific but equally as delicious, try the porridge. There are lots of tasty toppings to go with it, too. A great rendezvous indeed.
