Excellent gluten free options

Reid's is an attractive cafe in the centre of Perth. We were shown to a seat by a friendly member of staff who pointed out the fairly extensive gluten free section of the menu and was quick and helpful when she went to find out what the cake options were for the day. I had a rhubarb loaf which... read more

My first comment concerns the chairs. They have two types, wooden ones which I find very uncomfortable and leather covered ones which are very comfortable. You should choose the comfortable ones! The decor of the cafe is slightly unusual being part modern and part old fashioned but quite pleasant. The savoury food is quite highly spiced with Thai and Mediterranean... More

Had a really delicious lunch. When we walked in it was busy but we were seated and served quickly. I had the special Panini of the day and it was one of the best I've had. All the food coming from the kitchen looked really good and I would definitely go back.

I visit Perth for work and on each visit I come back here to eat, chill and read a book. The food is excellent, service friendly, tables and chairs well spaced and generally very comfortable and relaxed.

I visited Reid's with a friend for breakfast on Saturday just passed. I have been a few times before when I have visited Perth and have always given it another chance after finding body hair in a meal a few years ago. After Saturday's shocking customer service I can't say I'll be back. We both had the pancakes and fresh... More

We popped in to Reid's on Saturday whilst on a short trip to Perthshire. Last time in Perth we walked past and thought it looked like it would be good. And it didn't disappoint!! My wife and I both had a large bowl of steaming home made soup which was delicious. We both also enjoyed some fresh baked scones which... More
