Tucked away Gem!

Whilst centrally located, it would be easy to miss or overlook this place. We almost did! Having spent the morning hiking we all arrived hungry!

I can only speak for the frozen coffee drink that I got, but this place rocks. The food items sounded delicious, so I'll have to check them out when I'm back in the area. Stop in and get some staples or a treat!

For such a small city, this cafe was a delight. They had multiple vegan and gluten free options on their menu AND in the dessert case. The sweet potato chocolate chip muffins were to die for, and they have the best coffee in town. Owners are great people and always behind the counter.

I came to Mountain Perks with the idea of a local cafe, mediocre in service and food. But was I blown away! The food was absolutely phenomenal and the coffe, Irish Dream, was the best cappuccino I've ever had. Pam, our server, was very friendly, efficient and a pleasure to meet. She sat down with me and my lovely lady... More

Stopped in for coffee and expected to find maybe a GF brownie. Instead, was treated to a selection of yummy stuff to choose from. I had the best GF spinach cheddar quiche and a bagel. The coffe was awesome. I would highly recommend, whether you are gluten free or not!

After dozens of trips to Perks I honestly love their coffee. They rotate one flavor each month and have several standard brews. They have great baked goods and breakfast lite fare. Lunch offers wraps and light fare, and salads. The buffalo chicken salad and pimento cheese is just great. Their soups are extremely tasty. Service is good and prompt.

Stopped there for breakfast and I got the everything bagel with the bacon and chive cream cheese; while my boyfriend got the same thing but added egg and pepper jack cheese. My bagel was good but his was better. The food was delicious but you can't really go wrong with bacon. We also got some sort of peanut butter and... More

Great coffee and customer service, definitely where the locals hang. Though I came for coffee and WiFi, the toasted sandwiches looked and smelled fantastic!

Treated a friend to a birthday lunch. Although we live in a nearby town, she had never experienced the Mountain Perk treat. She was charmed with our server, amazed at the savory meal and is now anxious to introduce her husband to this local treasure! Me? I'm always ready to return to this exceptionally fun, friendly, mountain coffee shop/diner!
