Superb coffee shop situated in town centre

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.

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

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.

Popped in for Brunch just after 11am. Breakfast served til 12 and lunch from 11. Perfect timing. Ridiculous huge selection from menu. Spoilt for choice. One had the breakfast panini and one the premier panini. Great choice of fillings and great servings. Service quick and efficient. Great find!

Staff were friendly and attentive. Service was good, and the level of service was also good. the best thing about our visit was how quick the service was, we only had to wait around 5 minutes after ordering for our food to come. Sandwiches and cakes were lovely. Will definitely return.

Great food, good service, paying for our meal a bit chaotic! When we went to the till to pay, they insisted that our bill had already been paid! It took some convincing to them that we hadn't! Well worth a visit though!

Called in this morning for tea and tea cakes with my wife while we were waiting for our sons school lunchtime concert to kick-off. She had the peppermint, I had the lemon grass and ginger. Both Suki teas and both were excellent, steaming hot and full of flavour. Really let down though by the toasted teacakes which were, to be... More

While the Willows coffee shop is open from breakfast its USP is its restaurant and the before theatre facility available until 7pm. Dining continues until 9pm. Well priced with a 2 course meal with wine or beer for £14. It is close to the Perth show facilities. Parking is relatively easy in the evenings.

I had a delicious mocha, which was perfect, for someone who isnt a big coffee lover, it hit the spot. I also had the carrot cake which was really good too! My auntie enjoyed her coffee. Great selection available. Friendly staff and very comfortable seat beside the window.

Went for lunch at the Willows and was not disappointed. Excellent home made soup and the bacon roll was a cracker. Pleasant surroundings and they even gave my dog a bowl of water. Friendly and efficient staff.
