Compassionate Service

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... read 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!

I had the best pulled pork sandwich here - good flavour and soft bun. Liked the prickly pear slaw too. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals too. The gift shop is a bonus - lots of fun gift ideas.

On vacation we were looking for a dinner that would be a change from the delightful local southwestern fare. Blue Willow exceeded our hopes. We ate on the wall-garden style patio, with its fountain and potted plants. I had nicely done salmon with green salad; my husband chose meatloaf with carrot ginger soup. The house wine that night was a... More

I've been there 4 times this year already. I came with my boyfriend in January. He had a breakfast meal and loved it. I had a meal no longer on the menu, rice with vegetables. I was there again this past week with two girlfriends. I had the stuffed avocado with chicken salad. It is SOOOO GOOD. I had a... More

We had breakfast at Blue Willow and were glad we did. Although the reviews I read were mixed, our experience was very good. I had the Blue Willow Special (scrambled eggs with green chilies, shredded chicken, salsa, cheese and topped with sour cream). It was huge, and served with home fries and toast. I could only eat half of it,... More

Since I live in Tucson, I have been here many times over the year.....I have to say that the food is always great! Yes, it gets full at certain times, so you either go between busy times or wait for a table. We have never waited longer than about 15 minutes. We were there again recently for breakfast and it...

I was rushed when I arrived, meeting my dad for breakfast. I explained my situation and they put my order up front and within 5 minutes I had bacon, eggs, toast, and beans. It was so simple but yet so good. The service was great and I can't wait to go back!

We were here on Valentine's day morning for breakfast with friends. Tables were put one next to the other so that we could sit together. There were 10 of us. We all ordered what we liked and it did not take long before we all had our food on the table. We had a great meal and a great get... More

Breakfast and lunch times overlap; breakfast during the weekdays ends at noon and lunch starts at 11. Breakfast all day on weekends. We had fresh orange juice, a real treat. The Blue Willow special omelet was ample and hard to finish and excellent. The spinach mushroom crepes along with a side of sauteed veggies and also comes with either a... More
