We've been here multiple times. Their pastries never fail at being great. Their customer service and food can be iffy. Orders have been lost/forgotten with no apology. Pastrami sandwiches have had one, ONE, slice of meat for $9. So while it does have a good...reputation for us it's all about the pastries to prevent disappointment.More

The Rendez-vous Café is a hidden gem. It’s hidden in plain sight in a nondescript strip mall on the forgotten side of Las Cruces. As a French bakery, it’s fantastic. As a breakfast / lunch diner it’s also fantastic. Image having French onion soup, a...Rubin and an éclair for lunch! Each item outstanding. Service was quick and friendly. The décor simply and functional. The restrooms clean. The prices were very reasonable. A fanatic value for an excellent meal.More

This is truly a find for authentic French baking. We had breakfast one morning and pastries and coffee today. Superb!

We've had breakfast and lunch at this wonderful cafe. The staff were very efficient and friendly. They went along nicely with my husband's attempts to order in French. The pastries bring back memories of our 7 years in Belgium. The pastries go quickly, so if...you want some to take home, order them while they've got them. I keep missing the Almond croissants, darn it. Over indulged for breakfast, but well worth it .I had the continental breakfast with a wonderful croissant and scrambled egg with green chile and cheese (French restaurant, yes, but this IS New Mexico). For lunch, I had the Pate Maison. I could have been back in Masnuy St Jean, Belgium, it was that authentic. Nice place also for coffee and pastry with friends...or solo. I love the decor and the staff is always very friendly and professional....also apologetic that there are, alas, no more almond croissants aujourd'hui.More

I had the wonderful salad with pecans, cranberries and apples, topped with melted brie en croute! I may have licked my plate. It was delicious.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast - split a Breakfast Sandwich - and then enjoyed a yummy almond croissant; it was difficult to make a pastry decision, as they all looked wonderful. The coffee is strong and delicious. Service was excellent. We will definitely become regulars...when we move here.More

We went to lunch with our friends and were delighted with our "find". I ordered the onion soup and a salad which was excellent. My wife had the the avocado eggs benedict which she enjoyed also. Our friends had the 3 egg omelette and the...eggs benedict also very good. The restaurant has a bakery section that we purchased some delicious tarts, fudge cake torts and tiramisu. Wow, what a find!More

Even though Le Rondevouz is nearly a 100 mile round trip for us, it's a lively treat on a Sunday morning. All the menu is enticing, but I can't pass up the avocado eggs Benedict with crispy hashbrowns. The live music adds to the ambiance,...even though it's a noisy little space with all the chatter. Of course, the French pastries are exquisite, and you must take some home.More

We drove by this lovely little restaurant and then turned around to have a look inside. Quaint. French. Lovely. Beautiful pastries in glass cabinets and happy customers around small tables. We ordered pastries. Then we noticed someone’s quiche and salad. As a posted sign inside...states “Eat dessert first”—we did. Then ate our quiche. We loved this little shop and will return.More

I’m so glad that I ordered my favorite, EGGS BENEDICT. It was eggs-traordinary! I also 💗 love the dark chocolate mocha ☕️
