We called in for a hot chocolate and a bun, and the experience was wonderful. The waitresses were friendly and attentive, and were helpful in making our food choices. The drinks and buns were lovely too, and the place was spacious and not too hectic. I would recommend that you pop in if you're in town!

Popped in for a quick lunch and was very pleasantly surprised by this place. Lovely fish chowder and filled roll (smoked salmon) washed down with a very good cup of coffee. Excellent service.

I always love visiting here. Lots of nice, different options - very good for vegetarian options. In fact, this place does my IDEAL foods. I don't eat much meat, so I ordered the roasted vegetable tart, this came with a generous cous cous salad and a lovey message on the plate. My partner has food allergies and always finds something...

This is the closest thing to what I was used to in London that I've found in Perth. Perfect to have a read of the paper and enjoy a great breakfast. Nice atmosphere as well.

Service was very pleasant. Very disappointed as both of us found the meal to be tasteless. We both had baked potatoes, one with chilly beef and one coronation chicken.

Scoured Perth for a decent breakfast. Absolutely found it at Reid's. My wife and I had the full house. Kids had pancakes and fruit. Ingredients were obviously great quality and were cooked perfectly. AND, they made a decent flat white. Couldn't wait to eat it, so only got a photo of the devastation that followed 😀Yummy!!!

The cafe was very busy when we visited and table available was cold and not in a great position. The food was good but nothing special. There are better places for lunch in Perth

I don't think Reid's was a stand out, but the soup was good and the coffee tasty. Definitely a place to have a break from walking around.

Been to Reid's a number of times and the quality of food and standard of service has always been very good. Same observation as other diners regarding the spacing of the tables. Just a bit small and too close together otherwise it would have been 5 stars. Would definitely recommend.

Description
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.
