This is a mom and pop kind of restaurant and gift shop that's been around for years. The service and food are consistently good, and the decor hasn't changed in decades.

Lovely independent Tucson tradition. Fresh, in house baked goods worth saving room for. Small decent wine selection, healthy wholesome salads, sandwiches, main courses mostly meat centric. Housemade salad dressings. Chicken salad is remarkable and we were delighted with salmon cake appetizer. Brown rice n veggies yummy as ever, skipped the optional tofu or chicken. Lovely enclosed back patio area, nicely... More

Always the Chili, it's delicious! On the way to the cash register is a gift space. Peruse the shelves, you'll surely find something to bring back for someone. And, don't forget to spin the card racks. Look for the Pondering Pool cards, they're thoughtful and whimsical!

We've enjoyed Blue Willow for years but it's become even more of a destination as there are a variety of options like gluten free coffee cake and especially delicious vegan chili. Highly recommend.

My wife and I have been wanting to try the blue for years decided to go for lunch. We both enjoyed having lunch and wondering through the gift shop. We took home Carmelita bar and fruit bar to enjoy later. Inside is seat yourself and very friendly servers who will recommend if asked. Casual setting which made me feel right... More

This is a former home and one eats in various rooms of the house. It sits sideways on a large parking lot and we missed it in the dark the first time. But it was well worth finding. The patio are was quite full as it was a nice night, so we chose to eat inside. Even though he was... More

The gift shop provided a diversion during our short wait for a table. It was so worth the wait. The food is absolutely great! The service was outstanding too. This is a great breakfast spot with patio dining.

I only write reviews for restaurants when I truly think it deserves one and the Blue Willow absolutely deserves a stellar review. My girlfriend and I sat outside, beautiful, shady, calm atmosphere with great service. We started off with the house made hummus and pita and it was hands down the best hummus I've ever had. It was smooth and... More

Going with friends had heard a lot about the Blue Willow. Walking in you find a gift shop with all kinds of things out of the normal. Sitting down not knowing what to.expect. Eating breakfast out means a normal omelette in most cases Denver. Ordered and when it came was like a Rocky Mountain High. Was mouth watering and more... More
