Was here for afternoon coffee/tea. Service was very slow - just as well we weren't in a hurry. Also we had a pot of tea for two and the pot only gave us enough tea for one cup each. Usually with a pot of tea you will get a least 3 cups out of it. Nice surroundings though and would... More

Consistently good for coffee, cake, lunches etc. Service friendly and food is of a high standard. Very popular but usually can get a table. Only drawback is one toilet - for a busy restaurant/café there should be more.

Popped in for lunch and had the soup / sandwich deal. Tasty soup and lovely ham roll with homemade chutney. Kids portions available and good choice on menu with daily specials on the board. Fresh baking available too. Friendly staff and quick service.

Ordered 2 sandwiches and a coffee and a hot chocolate, bill came to £19.90 which we found dear but I suppose it is Perth. Staff nice, good choice on menus, only complaint is blunt knives...hard to slice through crust.

We were staying in Perth for one night. We found this restaurant while looking for somewhere nice to have dinner. It was not busy which nearly put us off going in. Other places we had ĺooked into were packed and very noisy. We got a lovely welcome when we went in. This was only the secont weekend they had been... More

We stumbled upon Reid’s while looking for a spot to have lunch on a recent Sunday. It turned out to be a great choice. One of the daily specials was a lamb burger infused with mint and served with fries and a side of tzatziki sauce. The burger was served on a fresh, toasted brioche and was incredibly tasty and...

What a fantastic place to eat. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Even the lovely waitresses were very accommodating and friendly. Pity there aren't many other eating establishments like this. Highley recommend popping in here for a taste sensation.

I had taken my wife away for an overnight in Perth and decided we would try Reid's for breakfast. She has coeliac disease and the reviews indicated an extensive gluten free menu. The staff were friendly and engaging and very accommodating of her dietary needs. There is indeed a wide variety of gluten free options and my wife ordered pancakes... More

Decided to visit Reid's because we were able to sit outside as we had our dog with us. Friendly waitress came out immediately and took our order and shortly after brought a bacon roll for my wife whilst I had a Panini. Both were excellent and the waitress spoke to us and made us feel welcome. This was our first... More

We were just in for teas and coffees after having had a meal elsewhere. This is a really cosy nicely decorated café and although we didn't have anything to eat the scones and cakes looked particularly good.

Reid's Cafe and Bistro opened in July 2010 and is privately owned by locals Alan and Allison Ovenstone who continue to take an active role in day-to-day operations of the vibrant venue. Located in the City's busy High Street, Reid's is open 7 days a week and serves locally sourced produce, beef from a local award-winning butcher, breads and a selection of home baking produced freshly at Reid's. You'll receive a warm Perth welcome from the friendly staff and can choose from an extensive breakfast menu, fabulous cups of fresh coffee in the mornings and afternoons, and lunch or tea from the All Day Menu. A "Daily Specials Board" offers some tempting options over the lunch period and Reid's is regularly buzzing in the middle of the day. The outside seating terrace has an enviable position on the main commercial High Street, cornering St John Street, full of independent retailers, and opposite George Street which leads to the Perth Museum & Art Gallery. Reid's is an ideal place to come & enjoy home cooking with flair & passion, whether its breakfast, lunch or coffee, our large menu & specials board should tempt you in. The team pride themselves on serving you freshly prepared food in the tastiest way possible.
