Awesome chicken salad

What a quaint shop with antiques to browse after you have a relaxing lunch. Not much to see in Marshall, but this cafe made the visit worth while.

This was a great spot for lunch. Good sandwiches and great menu. Several things I wanted to try. It's in a whole building of antiques, etc. Would make for a fun lunch / shopping experience. Service is slower, but they're not pre making anything, it's all made to order. Menu isn't very kid friendly, though. I wouldn't say the atmosphere... More

The food is very good here. I can't get tired of the salad. The food and the people will make you come back. Deb, Rob and staff are just great guys, they will accommodate any requests with a warm smile.

The food, primarily sandwiches and salads, is good and the space is very pleasant: nice historic building on a classic main street. The staff is very friendly and unobtrusive.

Huge antique store with a cafe in the middle. Really good food even though a little pricey! They often have musical entertainment that's really good!! We went during a "meet the symphony" night for a brass quintet concert. Fun!!

I have never been disappointed in my visits to Central Perks. The menu selections include numerous vegan and non-vegan items, I absolutely love their special exotic blend, their chicken salad is the tops, and my personal favorite is the Vegan Don Parks sandwich! The owners and staff are so friendly, you feel like you are eating at their home, it's... More

Great little spot that is tucked away downtown. Fast and friendly service. The hamburgers are fantastic and the cofee is better than Starbucks !

Food was good but everyone at the table received the food at separate times, even though we ordered all on the same ticket. Some of the food come out after the others already finished there meal.

Every time I'm in town, I make a point to visit Central Perks. They don't have a big selection for breakfast, but their banana bread is to die for! I like to walk over here in the morning (about a mile from our place) and read the newspaper while having a slice of banana bread (warm with butter) and iced... More

I love to come here and get a white chocolate mocha and use their wifi to download stuff without using my data. I also like getting their exotic tea and they have excellent sandwiches, soups and pasta salad. One of my favorite things about the restaurant is the lovely ambiance. I love to sit by the window and look out... More
