Does anyone have any photos of this before they moved west along Duke Street to their current location?  Especially interior shots?  I remember going inside was like stepping back in time.  Like being on a film set out of The Godfather or something.  Real vintage period-piece upholstery.

Why did they move anyway?  A change of image/clientele?  Changing the riff-raff for the cosmopolitan cliché cluttering up the place these days?

Strange.  They coulda served both sides of the street.  Why did they move?  Because nothing`s been done to the old site since since it`s demolition decades ago.

Pretty sure they were used as storage for goods as we used to stop in here sometimes on the way back from Fine Fare with my mum though The Rendezvous Cafe was always the preferred option.

The Rendezvous Cafe has the best ice cream ever.  Still remember it to this day.

Agreed but best of all was just further along Duke St  at junction of Carntyne Rd. DeMascios - Long gone, but not forgotten.
