What People Say About Us!

Kelly H. San Francisco
“I absolutely love this cafe! It’s a secret gem for those working in the area. The staff is very pleasant and to me the food is fantastic. The chicken curry sandwich and the grilled cheese are two of my favorites on the regular menu but I’m always tempered by the fabulous specials. Thank you to the staff and chef for the wonderful service and food :)”

“I wandered here for the first time with a co-worker and was pleasantly surprised! Beautiful sunny atmosphere and friendly service. (…) I’ll definitely be back. I also LOVE the restaurant’s mission to help people in need in Silicon Valley get training for meaningful employment and wages. Way to go!”

“The atmosphere at Rendezvous Cafe, which opened in the fall at the Sobrato Center for Nonprofits in Redwood Shores, may look and feel like a hip, power-lunch hotspot, but it all started with a mission to give back to the community.”  Read more
