Always a warm welcome

This has become a favourite for us when we visit Perth. The food is delicious and the choice very varied. The staff always make you feel welcome and nothing's a bother. Definitely not to be missed - a great place to meet up with friends and family.

Visited 3 times during our 2 week stay in Scotland. Very friendly and helpful servers, the meals were delicious. You must leave room for coffee and baked goods - they are scrumptious! If you are in Perth - you must visit Small Talk.

Very traditional little Victorian tearoom with homemade delicious great food! Tea comes in a traditional pot (real tea) plus the little China cups are a great touch! Me & my mum have been here a couple of times, we aren't from Perth but when we are through we will always go here! Great little find! Love this place!

We, being two people, went to Small Talk for lunch today. The staff seemed friendly but, basically, clueless. The table we were given meant that my companion was sitting in the busy traffic-way from the kitchen. Two people came to take our order, one after the other. The first thing we ordered was off the menu. I asked to have... More

This was recommended to us and we were very glad we tracked it down! Beautiful cakes - my berry scone was fresh and delicious - and massive pots of tea. The decor is quite full on, as was the music (Viennese waltzes etc.) but it's all great fun and the staff were very friendly.

This is high tea done proper! You won't be able to eat again for 12 hours but it's so worth it! George, the owner exemplifies Scottish charm!

Small Talk, in the heart of Perth, offers tasty fresh food and wonderfully warm hospitality. We feasted on salads and sandwiches, all packed full of fresh, local ingredients. Don't forget to save room for the baked goods. The carrot cake is a delicious traditional recipe that has drawn area diners for years. The service was super friendly and nicely attentive.

This is a lovely small cafe/restaurant in Perth city centre. Delicate in taste and and a menu to suit most tastes I would think. The staff are so friendly and made me very welcome. The assortment of cakes etc was fantastic. Only slight problem was that it doesn't take card payments but there is a bank right next door!
