Love Blue Willow

Had breakfast at Blue Williw this morning!! Had an omelette---love the bacon, jalapeño and I add mushrooms. Perfect combo!!! Fried potatoes are the best. Spotted a woman eating a chicken tostada salad--looked incredible. Lots of white meat chicken shredded on it. Gotta try next time. Raisin toast... read more

Had breakfast at Blue Williw this morning!! Had an omelette---love the bacon, jalapeño and I add mushrooms. Perfect combo!!! Fried potatoes are the best. Spotted a woman eating a chicken tostada salad--looked incredible. Lots of white meat chicken shredded on it. Gotta try next time. Raisin toast is good and so was granola and yogurt.

I went here because some friends said it was cute. I can't say I agree. The tables were too close together. There weren't many customers there and we could hear conversations going on at other tables. And of course others heard us clearly. The tables were ugly and carpet had crumbs. Not a nice, comfy setting that it's going for.... More

We were really excited about having breakfast after reading the reviews. When we walked in we observed a small gift shop. We also noticed they had both indoor and outdoor seating. We were told to sit where we wanted. We chose indoor due to the hot weather. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who took our beverage orders while... More

I eat at the Blue Willow often and have always enjoyed everything i have ordered. They make really great breakfast my favorite is their French Toast and omelets . Their salads and sandwich choices are also very good. One of my favorites is their Tostada, it is huge and enough for two people easily. They also have a nice little... More

The wait can be off-putting for some folks, so weekend breakfasts probably are not recommended for impatient people. It is a relaxed place. Browse the constantly updated and fun to funky gift shop while you wait. The screen covered, plant enhanced, almost open air patio, and the indoor rooms that very clearly say, "yes I was a home once," and... More

This is a very busy seat-yourself restaurant. We were amazed that the servers didn't seem to miss anyone; they were aware of who had been served and who hadn't. They were also friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The food was very good. We split the vegetable stir fry and a side of the Cajun spiced blackened salmon. It was just enough... More

It'd been at least 10 years since I'd eaten here, and in those days, we'd always gone for breakfast. This was my first time for lunch. Nothing impressive (except for the gift shop), but everyone's food was good, according to them. I ordered the savory crepe (spinach, kale, portobello), but it wasn't available. I ended up with their Special (quiche... More

I am giving this joint four stars and I can't really explain why other than they have the cutest shop in the front (a la Cracker Barrell) with tons of unique little gifts, cards and books. The restaurant itself has a lot of seating, you actually seat yourself. The service we received was good, nothing more nothing less. The menu... More

I was sorely disappointed with my recent visit to the Blue Willow Restaurant, which has historically been a terrific dining experience. I had not been to the Blue Willow for about a year; this trip the food was fair and the service was non-existent. They are self defined on their web page as a “full service” restaurant, but I might... More

The Blue Willow is a foodie's delight, offering a creative menu with beautifully prepared and presented food. Our amply-proportioned breakfast was absolutely delicious. Whether you are watching your caloric intake or sliding into a slab of bacon, the Blue Willow is perfect for indoor and garden dining at its best. Our party of eight, including young children, parents and grandparents,... More
