Cool little hangout

Came here to try out due to reviews. It is a very nice place to relax with a good cup of Joe. It has a relaxing atmosphere and it draws a good crowd. If you don't like Starbucks give this place a try. Bring your computer or phone or just have a conversation. I am doing my review on my... read more

I absolutely love this spot. From winter to summer, the taste of coffee never fails. They offer countless incredible flavors for iced coffees (banana hazelnut, for example). Also, the raspberry lime rickey is perfect - maybe the best in the greater Boston area. There is quite a lot of seating for a coffee shop, so it's very easy to sit... More

Always love stopping here for a snack. I'm very into tea, always buying loose leaf, and this is one of the few places I've been where you can actually get good quality loose leaf tea in a coffee shop. Their coffee is also excellent and I enjoy the pastries. Environment is casual, nice art work.

My favorite coffeehouse anywhere, agree it's perfect cafe wtih smalltown feel. I love their scones. i haven't had any food here yet so no comment on that. Great place to meet up with friends. But now everyone is onto this cute place, i hope it doesn't get too crowded.

Perks is one of those places that takes you back to smalltown living. The local coffeshop where everyone knows everyone and the beverages and food are both truly amazing. Sit down, you won't feel rushed and enjoy your stay. They also have live music which is out of this world. If you want to feel at home with great food... More

Whether it's a quick coffee to go, in sizes and flavors you can pronounce and at prices that show value, or a late afternoon client meeting, Perk's has atmosphere, location and great beverages, sandwiches, salads and soups!

You have to love a place that serves great sanwiches, has cute decor, and friendly staff! Food is fresh. Breads are scrumptious. Coffee is fabulous. Prices are reasonable. They have something for everyone: soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts. Take out or eat in, either way this place is a jewel in Norwood center!

Perks has atmosphere. Whether you want a romantic hot chocolate or latte at night, or a delicious soup/sandwich during the day, Perks is a good experience. The staff is gracious, the food/drinks are great, and sometimes Friday/Saturday nights there is live entertainment. Favorite: hot chocolate, paninis, clam chowder!
