For breakfast I suspect not! Try searching the restaurant section by type of cuisine but i think a full scottish fry up is more to be expected.

According to this website:

https:/…

Blend Coffee Lounge (274 High Street, open 08.00 Monday-Saturday / 10.30 Sunday) does a falafel wrap, whilst Fair Maid (18 Dundee Road, open 08.00 daily) has Mediterranean/Middle Eastern-inspired items on its menu.

As for a Middle Eastern Breakfast - about as likely as me turning up anywhere in the Middle East outside the major cities and finding a Full Scottish :)

Wirewiper, you won't find Black Pudding on your breakfast plate in my neck of the woods.

Maybe buy take away from M&S food hall. Not sure how large the one in Perth is but in my local one they sell falafel and other Middle eastern type food

M&S's Hummus is disgrace to this noble dish. I strongly advise OP to avoid it.

I'm with you there Yuri, most UK supermarket hummus is crap. And don't get me started on that fluorescent pink taramosalata.

I think most locals in Perth might think falafal is another word for stramash 😀as in oh what a falafal is going on down the street.

BTW, pink Taramosalata is originally coloured by some beetroot added.

As much as I share OP's affection to our local Middle Eastern food, I'd strongly suggest to explore fantastic culinary opportunities UK is offering. The pastries, cheeses, great Scottich smoked salmon, free ranch eggs, etc - all these may enrich your breakfast enormously. If traveling in Summer, fantastic cherries, raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, red&black currants, blackberries, etc, etc, etc - all are real treats to the Middle Easterner.

Don't seek poor replicas to the original stuff, you know well. Open yourself up to the new tastes. It's one of the most pleasing benefits of travels to the new countries.

Yuri.
