A busy restaurant is a good indication of a places popularity however it should not be so busy as to feel crowded. Unfortunately this is the case at Reid's. There are to many tables and chairs for such a small venue. This creates a chaotic atmosphere in which it is difficult to relax. This is a shame since the food... More

Happened upon Reid's by chance last week. Decided to have breakfast I don't eat beans and was offered an alternative of extra egg and bacon. All very good tasty sausage and black pudding. Liked it so much we went back again on Saturday. Excellent good service and staff, nice surroundings as well.

Alan and his team provided a wonderful buffet that everyone enjoyed. Everything was very fresh and tasty and there was loads of it! Despite all of our best efforts, we still didn't manage to eat it all! Highly recommend them and many thanks to them for making our "do" such fun and stress free

I popped in here for a tub of soup to takeaway. I hadn't been in for a while so changed my mind at the last minute and took a table. The soup was delicious. Cauliflower and nutmeg. It came with a couple of pieces of rustic brown loaf and plenty of butter. The surroundings are nice, the cafe isn't sumptiously... More

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.
