We wandered out of our hotel for breakfast (they were charging 15 pounds per person!) and saw this cute little cafe. The food and service were great and the staff was very helpful. I think we ended up spending about 15 pounds total for both of our breakfasts plus coffee. The decor was super cute, too. Highly recommend!

This is a great cafe, the food is fulfilling and freshly cooked to order, so don't be in a rush. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are very friendly, value for money is an added bonus.

The Rendezvous Cafe is quite little and cosy, staff are friendly and it seemed to be mainly catering to locals on the Monday morning that I was there. I had pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, which went down well, and a cup of tea. It was perfectly pleasant and the bill was very reasonable.

Lovely place, nice coffee and reasonable prices and very friendly staff. Also loved the old silent movies that ran on the widescreen tv and would recommend it.

My mate and I were up at Inverness at the weekend to see PIL at the Ironworks. On the Sunday we went here for a breakfast before heading back down the road to Perth. Had the full Scottish and a couple of Coffees as well. Definitely got our money's worth here.
