Great Breakfast!

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.

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

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.

We recently visited Perks Cafe on our last PPB trip. It had been years since we'd been there. I forgot how good the food, staff and ambiance is there. Made me wonder why I hadn't been there in so long - Go, you won't be disappointed. Their service is the benchmark for quality servers, food was fantastic and the nautical... More

We were in PPB this past weekend for my son's baseball tournament. We stopped in for a quick lunch before our next game. We had around 15 people in our party and although they were quite busy, they quickly accommodated us. We told them we were in a rush and the server was very understanding. He brought out our food...

This was probably the worst place for breakfast ever. The pancakes were very heavy and dry and served with the cheapest syrup money can buy. Coffee was old. The only reason for two stars is our server who was very sweet. Cannot pay me to go back.

I am truly sorry I just can't think how the coffee could be old as we go through so fast, I even have one person who only makes it as we go through it so quickly, I'm sure if you asked we would have made you a fresh pot. It is a bit stronger than most because we spend the... More

There were 8 of us having breakfast, we all ordered somethng different, and we all enjoyed it very much. Very efficient, helpful and friendly staff. They were very busy in there and in fact cars were starting to line up to get in the car park, obviously a very popular eatery! Would definitely eat there again.
