Used to go to Willows many years ago when visiting perth. We visited this morning for coffee. The waitress ignored us once we sat down and if it had not been for the lovely lad who was clearing the tables we might be sitting there still! He had to go over and ask her to take our order and she... More

Been visiting Willows for years. With lovely homemade cakes and scones, I didn't mind paying slightly over the norm. But recently the menu has been revamped and the prices increased. So much so that I cannot justify it... nearly £10 for a simple baguette?! I could get a 3 course meal for that.. Also went in today to take away... More

Its always a delight and pleasure to dine in Willow's Perth. Attentive, efficient and polite staff always willing to make your visit special. Steaming hot coffee with a delightful selection of cakes and scones. Hot food and daily specials are always delicious and plentiful. Well worth a visit when in the city of Perth..

Stopped for lunch with mixed results. Baked potato was wonderful - crisp skin and lovely and soft on the inside. Ham and cheese toastie had fatty ham and the side salad had no dressing. The waitress was foreign and struggled to understand us. Also, she was quite disinterested.

I never go to Perth without visiting this cafe/tearoom. The food is always fresh and a great selection of cakes. It doesn't matter what I choose from the menu I'm never disappointed. The staff are attentive and friendly enough without being in your face. Always look forward to coming back.
