Delightful cafe & excellent service - highly recommended!

We've been coming here regularly for the past two years, always a delight. The vintage cinema really adds to the ambience and provides a unique bygone type of entertainment.

Had two great breakfasts here January 2016 on our trip to Inverness/Highlands. The owners were very nice - Gave us excellent advice for things to see in the area. Exactly what we needed! We hope to be back!

We had an amazing breakfast here while travelling through Inverness on the 5th of December. Full Scottish breakfast plus great coffee. Service was excellent with friendly staff. Serves breakfast all day along with lunches. Will definitely go back.

Went by for brunch on a rainy day in Inverness - it's a tiny place (smaller than a US Waffle House) that holds perhaps 20 people. The staff are really friendly and the food is excellent. The 6 item Scottish is really filling - 10 would be too much! And the pancakes taste more like cake, so be warned -... More

Stayed overnight in Premier Inn, but didn't want their breakfast. So planned to go to the Rendezvous for a light breakfast, which we did. Coffee (a really lovely generous Americano we had) with toast. Just what we wanted to start the day. There was plenty of other food to choose from, but we were trying to be good! The staff... More

We have visited the Rendezvous on several occasions now while on holiday and have always found it welcoming. The film based decor is a real talking point and keeps the kids guessing while the food is prepared. Food tasty and freshly prepared.

This is to my knowledge the only public place in Inverness to serve breakfast before 10 am which is why I ended up there prior to a shopping spree. I ordered the Full Scottish Breakfast with 10 items, which is great value for money. Service was speedy and friendly. The food was very good, I would have preferred my eggs... More
