Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were on holiday and Effies was recommended to us. We booked for lunch - and just as well because we would not have got in if we hadn't. We were given a very warm welcome and all of the staff were extremely friendly &...helpful. It was lovely to have such fantastic service, with fine China crockery and silver tea pots, wonderful! The walls are decorated with pictures from days gone by and the overall atmosphere & decor is olde-worlde and very relaxing. Now none of the above would be worth mentioning if the food wasn't up to the same high standard, it was superb. We went for soup and sandwiches with tea. What a choice - the sandwiches were packed with delicious fillings and the soup so very tasty. We enjoyed our lunch so much, we had to return 2 days later for a wonderful afternoon tea. Thank you for your warm hospitality and delicious food.More

Came for tea time with my family, and had felt so well taken care of. We were seated immediately and served quickly as well. They went above and beyond to make sure my toddler and baby were comfortable, our server Carli offered her strawberries and...cold water for my toddlers tea to help cool it down. She was so sweet and attentive. Would highly recommend paying a visit, not to mention the decor is adorable!!More

Upmarket but nicely old style silver ware quaint cafe with fine china crockery. Great food, friendly staff and outstanding carrot cake. Exceptional service and the cafe has an interesting history. Recommendable for visitors to the Perth area.

Took my mum today for afternoon tea. Food and atmosphere is fantastic I cannot rate this wee place high enough. If you are ever in Perth, Scotland and fancy a cuppa and cake, this is the place for you. I love it.

Easily the highlight of our week in Perth. George, Edna and the whole team were so wonderful. Cullen skink was delicious and the carrot cake more than lives up the hype - Best we’d ever had! Came back a third time for a wonderful breakfast...too. Thanks so much!More

We visited to experience an old fashioned tea room and have afternoon tea. Positives: Food was nice, all homemade. We had coffees and hot chocolates which were good. The staff were lovely and very pleasant. The tea room decor itself is very original and dedicated...to the history of Perth. The crockery and cutlery is fancy and traditional. Negatives: Menu is slightly different than it is online, with a price increase of £1 per person and is cash only. We were located opposite the counter with people walking past every time someone came in with no space. On left hand table was a regular watching us constantly and on the right there was staff eating. This would not of been an issue if it was busy but there was lots of other tables with privacy. One last thing the jam seemed cheap and cream was not clotted for the price of an afternoon tea.More

Had afternoon tea here today 20/1/2024 absolutely amazing, staff were lovely and friendly, food was superb. Although we had booked for afternoon tea we discovered they served Cullen Skink so we ordered a bowl each amd it was THE best Cullen Skink i have ever...had. The afternoon tea itself was brilliant, lovely sandwiches, lovely scone jam and clotted cream and a beautifully moist slice of Victoria Sponge to finish off. Would highly recommend to anyoneMore

Effie’s is a an absolute gem of a place which never fails to impress. The staff are welcoming and knowledgeable, and a great range of super-tasty wholesome food awaits, including the best Cullen skink I have had anywhere - every time! The decor is magnificent,...displaying scenes of Perth down the years and the opulent silverware service is an added delight. I cannot recommend Effie’s highly enough.More

Effie’s tearoom is quirky and really lovely! The service was friendly and welcoming and they managed to fit us in despite being well booked up. The food was delicious…we recommend the Cullen skink and the mince and tatties. Thank you all.

patty, I really don't recall. There is no shortage of places in Perth that will produce bacon rolls that could win prizes. Try Gillies, even M&S will sell them and freshly made. Sorry I couldn't give the answer you wanted.
