Willows is A Must When in Perth.

We had a beautiful meal at lunchtime today in Willows Coffee Shop & Restaurant​. Food and service every bit as good as usual. Don't usualy go to Perth on a Saturday because it's too busy. Dosn't matter when you go to Willows, it's always busy unless you get in before 12 O'clock. Well Done Willie... read more

Another chance find, and all the staff were most welcoming and lovely. It was a Sunday lunch time and nothing was too much trouble. Food: What a refreshing surprise to see sweet potatoes featuring so much on a menu and the food didn't disappoint! Steak and caramelised onions in a ciabatta with salad and sweet potato fries for us and... More

A lovely coffee shop with delicious pastries and sandwiches. On a very sunny afternoon we sat outside and enjoyed strawberry and mango smoothies topped with cream and marshmallows, absolute heaven ! The tea was very good too and all reasonably priced. It is only a short walk from the shopping mall so great for after shopping relaxation.

Have visited this coffee shop often over the years. It has a lovely outside seating area on a very quiet street which is a perfect suntrap - when there is sun! Brilliant coffee but also has a reasonably extensive food menu, the quality of which is very good. It is a great place for lunch (a quick or leisurely one)... More

I have been to Willows quite often as I like the gluten free options, I'm not coeliac but prefer not to eat so much gluten and this place caters well for me. I love the hot chocolate, sometimes with marshmallows when I have a sweet tooth although the last wee while they haven't been hot enough, but still tasty but... More

Very popular coffee shop, friendly staff and good food. Definitely recommend a visit if in Perth. It's situated right in the centre along with other coffee bars and catches the sun if you want to enjoy your food and coffee in the fresh air. Inside is spacious and clean. The toilets well maintained and tourist information booklets of both local... More

Stopped off for lunch here the other day and we were fortunate enough to be able to sit outside as we had our dog with us. First thing was water for the dog, which came without asking!....Thank you for this, really appreciated.

After a busy summer travelling to some lovely places with lovely cafes, including others in Perth, I was delighted to get back to Willows the other day. Beautiful lunches and home baking served by efficient and friendly staff in a nice atmosphere. It reminded me that having experienced class in European café culture we have the same right hear in...
