A Must Stop Every time we Visit Bryson City!

Excellent coffee, bagels and sandwiches! P&J are very nice along with their daughter who helps out at the shop. Yes its gets crowded some times but that's because everyone wants to eat there. Sit down, relax and enjoy life in this one of a kind little coffee shop.

We saw how positively this place was reviewed and decided to stop here on our drive home from the mountains. I think the shining reviews are directly related to their breakfast sandwiches, which I did not have. I ordered a cafe au lait which came out looking like a dark coffee with a line of syrup. My fiance had ordered... More

We were waiting to take the Great Smoky Mountain train tour and stopped in for what we hoped would be a quick breakfast sandwich. It took 25 minutes for 2 women to make our crossants. I had ordered a to go coffee with 1 refill and finally had to ask one of them for my coffee so I would have... More

When in Bryson City, me and my husband always have to go to this place. We love their frozen coffee's. They have all kinds of bagels and sweets as well, not just coffee. Great little place to stop for any age.

We wanted a quick breakfast before heading into the Smokies to go tubing. I had read reviews on this place and seemed like a quick stop with good food. The register is over in the corner of the counter, with a large table right in front of it.. so that creates a bad flow there. We placed our orders... I... More

We love the Filing Station and Cork and Bean is wonderful, however you have to come to the Mountain (Perks). Never expecting to find anything gluten free beyond a salad, we found specialty coffees and most if not all the menu is gluten free. The wraps and bagel sandwiches make any road trip here worth while. This was just four... More

We stopped into this little coffee shop and it is a family run business. You are treated like a part of the family and everything we tried was delicious. The Kerby sandwich is awesome and if you like coffee Black Widow is good along with the other specialty drinks. They have great quiche and cinnamon rolls. Everything was Great. We... More

We stopped in here to get a gluten-free meal since we have food allergies in our family. Not only was the coffee to die for!! The GF wrap and pastries were the best! What was even better was the lady who helped with our GF meal said she wanted us to be able to enjoy a meal like everyone else...Now,... More

We had a great lunch today at mountain Perks. My wife and I like to eat there because the menu has many healthy things to eat! I'm 80 and she is 77 and healthy food has kept us in good shape. Stop by this place and enjoy good food with great people.

Customer service was AMAZING compared to some of the other places we stopped in before landing on this jewel. Then the coffee and sandwiches really stole our hearts. We met the two girls who should really be sisters and the mom of one of them. All working together as a team, could multitask keep a great convo and prepare your... More
