very popular, but it may be the only real sit-down, diner-style breakfast place. very busy, we had to wait, but large menu and was very good.

We found this restaurant by chance. The place is buzzing with activity. The waffles are to die for. The coffee was on point. Definitely a great find.

We were driving around with hungry kids and happened upon Perks by accident. I was happy to see the TripAdvisor certificate of excellence posted at the door. Maybe that heightened my expectations? The decor was cute, I guess you would say a mix of beachy/football/sports themes. The staff was the best part of this place, super nice and helpful. Sadly,... More

Great "beach" restaurant that serves up a fine breakfast. Comfortable and we'll appointed cafe that makes you feel right at home. Very large portions (3-egg plus omelet) and a mountain of home-fries. A large variety of choices that will satisfy most anyone's desires. A professional, courteous "home-town" wait staff makes for an enjoyable meal.

This is a great place to grab breakfast before you go out on the beach or boardwalk. Right across the street from things to do and lots of delicious options to pick from.
