Cafe Le Rendezvous
Alliance Francaise Building,
Himali Tower Lane,
Near Shyamal Cross Road,
I'm shocked that it has taken me TWO whole years to discover this gem of a cafe, here in Ahmedabad.
Cafe Le Rendezvous is a beautiful, peaceful open air cafe in the Alliance Francais Building near Shyamal Crossroads. They have a limited menu, but we loved every item that we tried from their repertoire, from the Roasted Tomato Basil soup (110/-) to the home made pistachio ice cream (95/-). The cheesy bread soaked in the tomato soup was just brilliant.
The chicken and mushroom vol au vents (2 large pieces for 100/-) were amazing as was the cold cous cous salad with chicken (180/-). The Croque Monsieur (130/-) was slightly desified with a slice of Amul Cheese instead of Emmental or Gruyere, but still very tasty. My husband loved his whole wheat chicken burger (110/-).
I wanted to try more of their menu, but it was quite late for us to be eating so much. Will definitely go back earlier in the evening to try more of their fare, especially their whole day waffles, their whole wheat sandwiches, crepes, Pad Thai, Quesadillas and the cherry with almond ice cream.
They have a large variety of teas and coffees on order, which I didn't try because I wanted to taste their ice cream.
They serve small bottles (200 ml) of Ava water, if you ask for water and charge 6Rs per bottle. FYI. All prices are completely inclusive and this large variety costed us only 743Rs.
Do note, that since they only have open air seating, you will want to consider the temperature before visiting.
