Your typical shore atmosphere diner, nothing fancy, but the food is decent, service was very good. Very children friendly. Food comes quick, a fast turn over, but they do not rush you either. Would return for breakfast only.

We went to Perks on a Sunday morning for breakfast and I can't even remember the meal because the experience went so quickly! Within two minutes of being seated the server came over to take our drink order and our food order! Definitely was not ready yet. A few moments later once we were ready, she took our order, and...

I am giving this 2 stars only because the waitress was so lovely. But the coffee here is NOT good. The food is NOT good. The potatoes have NO flavor. Eggs are blah. If you like very little to no seasoning than this place is for you. But there are so many other places that do a way better job.

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
