Perfect lunch

Big selection, healthful, fresh ingredients, pleasant atmosphere, low prices, good service except when crowded. Great card shop (best in Tucson) with wonderful tchotchkes that you must walk through to get into restaurant.

What a pleasant surprise to walk in and see all the fun items in the store. Even better is the restaurant and the patio area. A feel good place with good food, good service and although a bit noisy, altogether a fun place to eat. Will go again hopefully for breakfast the next time.

Whilst everyone else was watching the ncaa national bball champ game we had a lovely meal here where they have no tvs(ok by us). The spinach salad with warm bacon dressing was great. My wife's pork dish with beans and sweet potatoes was fantastic and my gaucho steak was great except for the dipping sauce which had so much garlic... More

Greeters; very nice, wait staff; pleasant enough, food; my sandwich bread was completely burnt inside then scraped off. I thought it had a we so I looked. I was too hungry and pressed for time not to eat it. Every Tucsonan seems to love this place. I had avoided it because it always looked too crowded. They actually have a... More

Must make reservations and go hungry because you'll eat every morsel of these huge wonderful breakfast servings. This is the first air conditioned patio I've ever seen! Plenty of parking, a great menu and service that's quick and courteous. The surprise here is the joke/ gift shop at the entrance where you have to plan to spend a half hour... More

Other than the greeter, I sat in this place for more than 15 minutes while numerous waiters walked by me. It wasn't super busy, but two waitresses walked by me, less than one foot away without even offering me water. Finally my waitress who I had not seen before came over and offered me service. She was fast friendly and... More

Had the Blue Willow breakfast special and it was great. Orange Juice is freshly squeezed and the coffee very fresh. The service was also very good. Highly recommend.

Having read the very favorable reviews we decided to try Blue Willow for dinner. A total mistake. I am quite sure it is a wonderful place for breakfast or lunch but not for dinner. The salad was a few pieces of iceberg or similar lettuce with a slice of cucumber and two tired cherry tomatoes. The entree could have been... More

The quality of food at Blue Willow is well documented on TripAdvisor: it is very, very good. But that is not why I'm so impressed by the Blue Willow. A week ago we took a dear friend to lunch for her birthday. We arrived around 1:00 PM and there was a long line of waiting patrons. I gave my name... More

An excellent cozy cafe style restaurant with an outdoor seating area that is a great addition to a wonderful menu. Enjoy the brie platter as well as the daily specials. Great salads and fish specials!
