Thoroughly recommend this café for its food, atmosphere and staff. A quirky menu with a large choice of snacks, complimented by a special board. Food was outstanding and beyond expectation. Cosy, café atmosphere but décor may not be to everybody's taste - don't let this put you off.

After a night of interrupted sleep on the overnight train from london, breakfast at the best cafe in Inverness was exactly what we needed! A booth became free as soon as we walked in and we were welcomed warmly. Great coffee and great breakfast. Thanks!!

Very quick service and breakfast choices are a great idea, 3, 6 or 9. Food was very tasty, fresh and cooked to perfection. Will be back next time for lunch.

Went here for lunch with ma son today, which was great. He had to have the all day breakfast after all the great comments and he loved it, certainly filled his boots, what a plateful of stuff and tea and toast too, EXCELLENT! I had a baked potato with beans which was equally as good, but our highlight of our... More

We went there with a group of 5 people. The place is quirky and nice and the staff was pretty friendly. Food and drinks on the other hand were extremely bad. I had a macchiato which was a bit of brown water with some grey foam on top. I also ordered pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. The bacon was... More

Have returned here on every visit to the city. Great food, friendly staff and comfortable surroundings. Menu has a good selection, toasties are excellent. Staff more than helpful. Always a bustling little place. Already looking forward to my next visit.

First all day veggie breakfast I've had and it was really good! My partner enjoyed the meat version too. Friendly staff and quick service. I like the movie theme but would love to decorate the cafe to make it a bit cosier or put the posters in nice frames. Great selection on their menu. Definitely worth visiting :)

Returned to the cafe after a year for a breakfast with my children and husband on the way up to Embo. Once again the service was fast and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Love the fact they do not have Internet. You have to talk to each other or watch a classic silent black and white movie. Food was... More

I come in here regularly and all the staff are very friendly even when very busy. They are very polite and chatty whenever I am in. Food is lovely too! Will be staying a regular customer!

We visited the Rendezvous cafe before a day of sightseeing in Inverness and around Loch Ness. The "6 item" Scottish breakfast set, which comes with toast and a drink of your choice, was affordably priced, hearty and perfect for a day of activity. The cafe also had good vibes with its friendly owner and classy theme of retro films. Highly... More
