The meal options are written on a board for you to make your selection - mainly soups and sandwiches. After placing your order you take a seat and wait and then wait some more. With such a small restaurant and 3 people involved in meal prep (you can see them working as you place your order) I was a little... More

Great food and atmosphere out on the deck. Try the cup of soup and sandwich for lunch or one of their other items. All homemade. Generous portions and fresh ingredients. Cindy will serve you with a smile. They also specialize in catering.

Just moved to London and this place has been one of my favourite lunch spots. We found it by searching "best sandwhiches in London, Ontario" on Google. The staff are friendly and remember regular's by their name. Food is delish and its priced right. Nice variety and great spot to eat. Check it out!!!!

Over the years that we have been eating lunch at Willie's Cafe I have only had exceptional food and service. I usually have the smoked salmon plate but the soups are wonderful and all the salads are fresh & delicious too. In good weather I love to eat on the patio. Willie's neighbour is Oxford Books, one of London's few... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and based on all of the positive reviews, we decided to give it a try. Willie's Café did not disappoint! We had the Roast Beef & Swiss sandwich and French Grill Sandwich. Wonderful flavours, nicely plated, quaint dining area and good service. Can't wait to go back to London and try some of the other...

Looking for something new and different, I thought I would try Willie's café - so glad I did! It has a great menu - lots of variety and plenty of vegetarian options. There is seating inside and outside on a lovely little patio. Service was great, even though there was only one waitress. She was very pleasant and made everyone... More

I was meaning to stop by Willie's Cafe for months on end, but just recently had the pleasure of visiting for the very first time with some friends who raved about it for months. Needless to say, Willie's Cafe exceeded my expectations. When you first enter Willie's, it feels much like a cafeteria. You must line up and place your... More

Friendly, charming, casual and, most of all, tasty with a variety of craft beers, ciders and more to go with lunch. Went on a whim, left delighted with the food and the atmosphere.

I live in the area but had never been to this little place off the beaten track. It doesn't like much and I wasn't even sure it was open when I went but I'm glad I did. They have gourmet sandwich's at reasonable prices. I ordered for take out and the sandwich's were excellent, a nice combination of toppings I... More

If you enjoy a quaint out of the way spot with great food and unique style you will enjoy Willies. My husband and I have been frequenting this spot for years when we want something casual and scrumptious. During the nice weather we enjoy sitting outside, not because of the view because there really isn't one, it reminds us of... More
