Food is nothing fantastic and is way over priced. There was a diner called the OB diner and it was very good compared to this place and much more reasonably priced and a damn shame it closed because perks is a rip off!

I lived locally my whole life and never stepped foot in this cafe. Given its ocean ave location, I figured it to would be an overpriced tourist trap. I was definitely surprised. Prices were reasonable, our breakfast was served promptly and was quite tasty. Nice, clean family atmosphere with friendly service. I visited on a weekday, weekend might be a... More

We stopped here for breakfast on a recent Friday morning for breakfast after reading the reviews. I'm always leery about ordering "fresh fruit" at a restaurant, because most of the time SOME of the fruit is fresh, sprinkled with jarred melon....however, not at Perks! We ordered a large bowl of fresh fruit, and it was perfect...melon, strawberries, blueberries, grapes and... More

I did a lot of online research before our Summer vacation this year and I was amazed to read all of the good things about Perk's Cafe. Of all the fare on the beach, I believe breakfast is one of the hardest to do well and more importantly consistently. We are a party of two single Dads and two 11... More

The staff was extremely friendly and after we were given a table our orders were placed and we received them quickly and correctly. The food was very good. I got french toast and bacon, which was very... More

We went here for a fast and good breakfast after reading the reviews. It was more like a diner than a cute little place on the beach. First they would not let us in the with the stroller with my sleeping child in it saying it was a fire hazard. There is no way. The place was not that small... More

Very charming decor-very neat and clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The owner has a great memory for you being there before. We have only been there for breakfast which is alot of food no matter what you order-my favoriet is Perk's french toast. I cannot think of anything not complimentary to say about Perk's.
