Went based on T/A reviews and weren't disappointed. Entry is through a gift shop which to my eye had some clever items for sale. Seat yourself in or outside. We opted for outside which almost seemed indoors as it is heavily planted, walled in, with various coverings overhead. Service was quick and attentive. We were impressed by how many people... More

I just wish this restaurant was near us. We visited here with our grandchildren for brunch and although the weather outside was frightful we sat there with the sky covered and lots of fans it was still comfortable. And the food!! It was really, really good! Both my husband and I had omelets and loved them. The granddaughter pronounced the... More

Truly terrible. I had a Caesar salad which was absolutely the worst I ever had. The "decor" is yucky and the service practically non existent. Hoping I was there onan off night but I am not willing to give it another chance.

My wife and I had lunch at Blue Willow today -- been awhile since we last ate here. We both ordered meatloaf, which came with 3 pieces, potatoes and sauteed vegetables. Food was served within a reasonable time, the dishes were a nice presentation, the food was hot and tasty. Portions were ample. We added a piece of homemade blueberry... More

We saw that TripAdvisor rated Blue Willow very high, so we drove from north Tucson (Saddlebrooke) into the City to check it out. What a darling little cafe. Excellent service! The menu had perfect choices for breakfast, and my husband & I enjoyed our meals. Great coffee too. We will come back to Blue Willow whenever we're in town and... More

Pretty good assortment of both breakfast and lunch items. Ingredients seemed fresh and the fresh squeezed organic orange juice was an excellent touch. Prices were also reasonable. All around a super solid place to enjoy breakfast.

The food was good, with options that were healthier than your average american breakfast but still just as wholesome and filling. There is a nice patio area where you can sit out even on a hot summer day

Tried this place several times and always slow service and mediocre food. Even the pancakes are not worth the price.

We went at 12:30 on a Friday and it looked as though they had been busy before we got there. We were told to seat ourselves and there was a small table inside up a few stairs. There was a lot of room outside for customers as well. The waitress was average. I am not sure why this place is... More

I usually go here with a girlfriend I haven't seen in awhile. I always try to sit in the side room - smaller and quieter for talking and rest room near. It is a very convenient place to meet in Midtown, but the parking can be problematic (because the restaurant is so busy). I just keep driving around until something... More
