Yum!! Delicious flavorful flaky. Perfect.
These are the only baguette that remind us of France. We stop in to get them often. Love their other bakery, drink and menu items also!!
I have been going to Rendez Vous for years now and each time I go, I try something new and delicious. This last time I tried the almond choco croissant and fell in love with each bit! The flakiness of the croissant, the creaminess of the custard and the bits of chocolate was the best pastry I have ever had. I highly recommend trying something new each time you venture into the restaurant, you will not be disappointed.
I recently moved here and in my move I forgot to eat today, so I frantically looked for a something that was open.... I was happy to see this sweet French Cafe open.... it smelled amazing and the fresh pastries looked lovely too... it took me back to my college travels in the south of France.... I have never had or heard of a French Taco, so I ordered one. While it was being prepared, I ordered some decadent pastries for my family..,, We devoured everything without a crumb left on our plates! The French taco was absurdly good… I told my children I will have to get them those as well next time! If you love your tastebuds, and can't hop on a plane to France, travel on over to Rendezvous and treat yourself and your loved ones to authentic and ridiculously great food and a warm welcoming staff. Or get it delivered... I promise you won't be disappointed!
I love love love the croissants at Rendezvous! They are light, flakey and absolute perfection. I love any sandwich made with them and love adding some custard or just eating them plain. Sooo yummy! A great comfort in this challenging time where the little things make us happy. Yum. Getting more today! 💕
Iced coffee was awesome here - I highly recommend it with a pastry. It was smooth and with half and half it was creamy. Great atmosphere, excellent service. This is the breakfast place when you don't want to wait in a long line and have a great hot meal.
By far the best Almond Croissant I've ever tried at the US. 100% french ingredients making it extremely delicious and mouthwatering!
One of the most flavorful lattes I've ever had. The coffee is delicious here!
I love it!🥰
Loved my latte! The barista was very friendly and made my coffee exactly the way I ordered. The price was reasonable and it tasted great.
I visited this adorably inviting bakery cafe on May 21. I found it to be well staffed, clean and full of customers. The selection is huge and they also ha e catering and savory lunch items. Best croissants and macarons I've ever had. Friendly staff and outdoor seating.
Absolutely delicious bakery with the best almond croissants in town! Flaky, buttery and so satisfying.
We had this at our event and it was awesome. I got a ton of compliments from our group.
What a treat. YUM
This was amazingly delicious. I wasn't sure what to expect... I was pleasantly surprised. Very flavorful and savory, a delight to eat. You must order it!
Bought this my wife on her birthday! Let's just say I scored major "brownie" points!! It is awesome!
Mint chocolate chip dream! I loved it! What a perfect balance and blend with the coffee!
Favorite bakery to go to. This is my go to!
This is phenomenal! I love it so much!
One of the best French Bakery in OC. Reminds me of the last trip to Paris. 💕
Best coffee and the perfect compliment to traditional and wonderful Parisian bakery faire. The Chantilly was the perfect texture, and not too sweet. What a treat! I love this restaurant. We live in Alhambra about 1-hour away but I make the drive to enjoy the pastries, perfect bread, delicious crepes and sandwiches every chance I get! Thank you for being incredible Rendez vous!!
Hands down the best sandwiches you could ask for! The bread is so soft and the ingredients are always so fresh. This has been my new favorite to-go spot during this quarantine. Not only do they have the best sandwiches, but their breakfast is amazing too! From their crepes to their egg entrees, they always leave me so satisfied and thankful. My husband and I always have to get a fun coffee and sweet treat each time we order from here. My favorite is the pistachio macaroons, his is the chocolate croissant, but I assure you, you cannot go wrong with any of their selections. Thank you Rendez Vous for remaining open during these times and always leaving us so grateful that we've discovered such a wonderful jewel so close to our home!
Rendevouz has the best beignets. I particularly like the cinnamon one. It is delicious and not too sweet.
This place is a local gem! The new owners have transformed the interior to what feels like an authentic French bistro. I've eaten here numerous times and each and every time the food has been delicious. From the light and fluffy crepes to the creative salads, the menu won't disappoint. There are a plethora of delicious baked goods as well. The daily baked batards, baguettes and especially the croissants(including chocolate) are delicious as well as the other French pastries. They even have French macarons and gelato as well. The staff is very friendly as well. I highly recommend Rendezvous for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This place is a welcoming addition to Corona Del Mar and a daily-eatery.
Omg so light and fluffy
Nothing beats their almond croissant. Best one I've EVER had. Crave it daily but treat myself to it once a week! A must try!!!
So great! This is way better than anywhere else. They use real truffle chocolate powder. Not that syrup you get at starbucks and others. Everything is so authentic here :)
Love this bakery. We stay in CDM more than once every year and we come get a baguette every morning we are here. They are the best!
I haven't been to Paris in over 20 years and dearly missed this local pastry shop near our hotel. But now we've found Rendez Vous! The owner and staff are wonderful snd the food is to die for! We drive up from San Diego as often as we can ro luxuriate in the cuisine!
I absolutely adore this place! The decor makes me feel like I'm stepping into a cafe in France. The staff is always super friendly and the food is delicious. Don't forget to try one of their baked goods! They make my mouth water.
After passing this cafe for years while in traffic, we decided to find a parking spot an try it out. What a pleasant surprise. A perfect sandwich of turkey & swiss, lettuce & tomato with the crispiest bacon on a delicious baguette. Big enough for two to split and it came with the tastiest salad. An extra plate was no problem. Each cup of coffee is individually brewed and it was delicious just like in France. Splitting a plate with my wife allowed us to indulge in one of their delicious and authentic French pastries. The recently did a major interior refresh. This place is quaint, very friendly service and a real treat. I wish the owners years of success because I love having a unique place that serves excellent food and service that my friends will thank me for introducing them to. I look forward to my next visit and all those visits in the future. Bob & E.L.
Flavorful treat. Try this one for sure
What a great cup of coffee!! I loved that they used a really good type of almond milk, not the cheap ones with bad ingredients that a lot of places use. This was quality!
I love this! I order it with salmon! Really impressed with the quality of everything here!!
The sweetest of service and most delicious breakfast.
tastes even better than it looks! My wife loved this and I had a few bites myself.
Their pastries are amazing!- This one is my favorite.
Lived in London for a while and visited Paris often... this is as close as I've found in the States. So good!
