Situated in a modest row of eateries the Willows is a great example of a friendly oasis. There is outdoor seating and a happy ambience. The menu is varied and has some specials. Highly recommended.

This is the most amazing restaurant we have ever visited. The staff cannot do enough to help (they obviously enjoy their jobs). The food choice and quality is first class and prices very reasonable. When we are on holiday in the area we always visit Perth at least once and always call in to The Willows for lunch.

We had a quick but tasty lunch here. There are enough vegetarian options on the menu and the one I choose was very good. The staff was friendly, it was not too expensive and there was free wifi :-)

Popped in here on a Sunday at 4.30. We were told they stopped serving meals at 4.30 but it wasn't a problem. The food was excellent. The staff very pleasant . Would recommend. Although would not recommend Perth on a Sunday. Too many shops closed.

The cafe element is superb and great for perth. However with the recent menu change its almost appealing itself as a restaurant and the food was not to restaurant standard. It was too expensive for what it was but it gets away with it because it's in the city centre. Staff are friendly enough but stand around looking lost a... More

Happened across this little coffee shop by accident. Greeted by a lovely young lady called Laura. Experienced great coffee and the BEST SCONES I've ever eaten. Warmed cheese and bacon scone and a lovely apple and cinnamon scone. Delicious. Well worth a visit.

Willows is a very nice place to wind away a few hours. It has a nice terrace and it's pleasant to sit outside and watch the world go by. Large selection of coffees, teas and cakes and reasonable value for money.
