Fantastic Coffee Shop

Love this place been so many times and never thought to review so here it is. Scones and other baking is beautiful not like some coffee shops who just cant get it right. I would say this is my top pick for a cupa and cake in Perth. They do light meals too and they are very good as well.... read more

Really nice place to come for food and coffee but compared to local average it is over priced. Staff are always efficient and friendly, also have large GF menu to choose from which is rare for such a small, sheltered city. Outdoor seating is pleasant too.

Popped in for a light lunch on a post-Christmas shopping trip. I ordered the goat's cheese and red onion marmalade bruschetta whilst mum had bacon pancakes with maple syrup. Both dishes were beautifully presented and mine came with a beautifully crisp and fresh salad. The goat's cheese was soft and mild and a perfect match for the sweet and sticky... More

Whilst doing some last minute Christmas shopping in Perth High Street, was almost caught in a heavy shower but avoided this by dashing in to Reids, We were well received by the staff and the food was excellent.

Stopped here on a chilly November day. Perth surrounded by snow and we needed a heat. Wonderful Curried Parsnip Soup for those who relish spicy dishes and Broccoli and Stilton for the traditionalist. Welcoming staff team and wonderful smells of great food. We had rolls staffed full for salad, tuna and roast chicken. It was a busy Cafe enjoying the... More
