Yesteryear feel with modern, fresh & beautiful food

Step into the past and dine at this happy, cozy cafe with wonderful windows with-a-view. The food looks beautiful and tastes every bit as wonderful. The lattes? Exotic and can't remember having better. Build a memory with someone special as I did with my teen daughter, and just GO!!!!

This is one of my favorite places to eat. Good salads, especially the chicken and potato salads...yum! The coffee is really good, too. You haven't lived until you've eaten perk puffs...really.

I had two of the salads and they were both very fresh and tasty. The live music and the friendly local crowd and staff made my visit memorable. True southern hospitality.

We had breakfast at the Perk Avenue. It was a big room with character, the waitress was pleasant enough, and the coffee was good. However the Papa Breakfast for I think about $7,75 was a disappointment. Breakfast usually costs less than that so we expected it to be very good. The grits were fine, scrambled was the only choice for... More

We arrived around 4pm on a Sunday afternoon. Wasn't crowded but had a good number of customers for an "off" time of day. We were seated immediately and given drinks immediately. Ordered a few minutes later - I ordered a chicken club wrap and my mom ordered the veggie hummus wrap. After a 15 minute wait we were told they... More

I popped in to Perk Ave with my husband while visiting Madison GA from Reynolds Plantation. It was a surprisingly hip spot, with a great selection and good service. I had an unusual hot tea that was delicious. They had a set up for live music at one end of their large, historic space and being on a corner, and... More

Came in for internet access, but found so much more, Good food, adult beverage, and music. Music on Fri & Sat nights. Wait staff very attentive. Would return in a Georgia minute, but we Nc residents and a bit far to commute.

Came here by a lucky accident, and ended up having the best panini ever. Amazing pasta salad, friendly service, cute interior. Whenever I get a chance to come through Madison, I come here for lunch.

Lunch service was a little slow but we weren't in a hurry so it was fine. The location and large windows allow one to sit and soak in the small town flair of Madison. The food and peach tea was tasty.

I was visiting a friend in Madison and dropped by for breakfast. We sat down and waited for about 10 minutes, but no one brought menus over. We then moved closer to the bar area, and were told that they did not have a floor server right now? However, that person did serve us and brought menus. I had the... More
