Our spacious, light-filled cafe is great for professional meetings, off sites or retreats - an ideal venue for your organization. We can hold up to 170 people – or the space can be divided into 2 sections, one holding 110 people and the other 60 people. There is also an outdoor area with tables. And for corporate meetings, we have a large projection screen. And it comes with catering from our delicious kitchen - we specialize in local, seasonal food. Our chef will work with you to create a special menu just for you. Eat well, do good - we are a social enterprise. While you're having a great time and enjoying our food, you'll know you are helping people, as we provide work experience for people who are rebuilding their lives. ——————— FOOD AND BAR Food and bar minimums are included in the booking rate and typically serve up to 20 guests.

No smoking or pets and no outside food (though we encourage you to bring your own alcohol). No Sunday events. You may move the furniture but we ask that you put it back or work with our staff to do so.
Great, light filled space for our group of 100 people. Plenty of parking and right off the 101 freeway. Emily was quick with her responses, offered a variety of food & beverage options, and was more than fair with the pricing. My only complaint was we had asked for 2 wireless microphones and only one wired microphone was provided and it turned out to be inconvenient for our presenters. This is something, however, that can easily be remedied for the future.
Rendezvous was a great venue. It was large enough to host my event of almost 100 people, had plenty of parking and the space had nice enough furniture where I only needed to do minimal decorations. Guests also raved about the food and continued to ask me where I had found this gem of a space. Great spaces are hard to come by in the Bay Area and we will definitely be back again for more parties. Emily was very communicative and incredibly easy to work with! Such a pleasure!
Excellent Venue and host. Emily exceeded all of our expectations and was very accomodating. The place itself is perfect for parties of small or big size and ample of light. Perfect venue for our baby shower and everyone loved the place.
We had such a lovely experience with Rendezvous Cafe. The space was bright and friendly and had extremely convenient parking. It was spacious and clean and worked perfectly for our party to do a number of activities (team-building session followed by a powerpoint presentation followed by networking drinks and then a dinner for 40 people). Emily and Jen did everything they could to make our party feel welcome at the event. Our workshop participants kept commenting on how excellent the food was and they clearly had a great time. For us, not only was the food delicious but as a nonprofit we felt the food was very reasonably priced and it was so nice that our venue booking fee went towards the price of food. We were allowed to bring our own wine and beer to the event and simply paid for a bartender for a couple hours (another very reasonable fee). We also loved that Rendezvous Cafe is a social enterprise which hires people from JobTrain. The passion and dedication were so evident. I'd recommend Rendezvous in a heartbeat.
