Tasty find.

We stopped in this little coffee shop for a late breakfast. As my husband is gluten free, he was pleased to find several options for him. For tea snobs, they stock Harney & Sons teas. Almond milk available for coffees. We had a GF bagel with bacon & avocado and a bacon & egg croissant. Everything... read more

Our whole family loved the food! Gluten free options were the bomb diggity for me. I felt "normal" getting to order soup, wrap, and dessert. Worth the drive to check out. We will stop by every time we pass through.

The service is outstanding and the specialty coffee does not disappoint. The bagel variety was excellent. The staff provided excellent, honest and appreciated advise to me regarding the perfect local areas to explore. Just like their coffee, these locations will make me come back to Mountain Perks and the Great Smokey Mountains.

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! The menu offers a wide variety of choices and we ordered some wraps and a Bagel option. Each was freshly prepared using high quality ingredients, and tasted fantastic. A word of warning: only order a... More

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.
