“Great Food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The Blue Willow has everything. From vegetarian lovers to seafood dishes. There is a great outdoor area that you can sit and enjoy the outside yet still be covered. The food is sooooo good! I highly recommend the Blue Willow. Plus there is a cute little gift shop attached to it too.

“Good for vegans, and great coffee”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

There is a separate vegan menu, with a decent array of choices. Breakfast is available all day, and also includes vegan options. We get decaf with soy, which is always good, fresh, and hot.

Very pleasant outdoor dining with comforting gas heaters on the enclosed terrace. It looks like there is a misting set-up for summer dining.

Good service, pleasant atmosphere, good food. Full table service.

“Excellent breakfast and lunch.”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

The Blue Willow is a must stop for breakfast when we visit Tucson. The service is wonderful and the food great with an organic leaning. It does tend to get crowded but wait time has never been long. I alway tell friends who travel to Tucson you haven't had the Tucson experience until you have breakfast at the Willow. The small gift shop has local arts and assorted items as well as a baked goods counter.

“Quaint Place”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The restaurant is attached to a small gift shop. The courtyard has seating for 30 or so people with a plenty of shade from the sun. There are A/C and heating available and the road noise is not noticeable but the water fountain is!

The food was good and the service was very pleasant and friendly. Jenny was very helpful with things to do in Tucson.

“Perhaps our favorite Tucson restaurant”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Have looked long and hard for a great place to eat in Tucson and this filled the bill. Service was good, meal was better. My husband had the salmon and I had the trout, both were excellent and the strawberry crepe dessert was delicious. Would got there again in a heartbeat. Price was pretty standard for a nice meal in Tucson..with couple of glasses wine/dinners and shared dessert about $70.00
