I had a very filling breakfast experience at this restaurant with friendly efficient service. I was early (7:15 am ) and the waitress allowed me to sit and read the paper whilst she prepared her organisation in reparation for the early breakfasteers - and there were quite a few. The only downside is parking - which is outwith their control... More

Fantastic food, lovely service and always made to feel welcome..what more could you ask for! Enjoyed a spot of lunch with my family and couldn't find fault. This will be my first choice when eating out from now on.

We have had breakfast at Willows a couple of times in the past few weeks. It is always reliable for a good bacon roll in the morning with a mug of coffee. These were our first visits this year when the weather wasn't good enough to sit outside, and the new décor inside is an improvement on what was pleasant... More

We went in to Willows for a soft drink and a bowl of soup each. The parsnip soup was poor - watery, under seasoned and vastly overpriced at £4.10 for a small bowl. The bill came to £13 for the x2 soups and x2 soft drinks. This cafe has been in Perth for a long time, I feel that the... More

I visited this Cafe, and it is only a cafe not a restaurant, at Saturday lunchtime and ordered from an A4 paper on the wall at the entrance for Haggis & Neeps. The waitress brought our tea and coffee, after half an hour we asked where our food was, it was obvious we had been forgotten. The food eventually arrived... More

Willows Coffee Shop - the coffee shop the whole of Perth was crazy about. Amazing service, amazing food, amazing atmosphere. I'm sorry, what happened? I would now two years later rate this cafe as very, very average. Willows is now a very average, plain Jane sort of cafe. It's nothing special, nothing you'd craze over or remember specifically after leaving,... More

Thank you Kael for taking the time to write this review although I am sorry to hear that you have not enjoyed your visit. It is clear that we have not met our usual high standards and I am glad you have brought this to my attention. We make most of our own cakes in house to our original recipes... More

Ate here for an evening meal on Saturday. The surrounding are lovely , service is relaxed and friendly and the kitchens are spotlessly clean . I've eaten here for years and cannot recommend this enough . Menu changes can be made upon request and this place is a credit to the town . The food is amazing . Miss it... More
