Great food. Loved the atmosphere!

Great food with large portions! We enjoyed our visit and left feeling very full. The servers were nice. I could eat here everyday but I am unfortunately over 2000 miles away! If you have the chance, go grab some breakfast!

After years of ignoring this place on my trips, we stopped. WOW! amazing service, great food. There was a 15 min wait, but it was well worth it.

Food came out hot and well done. Hopping place, quality staff, and clean. Several different staff members kept coffee filled and made sure we were doing well without being intrusive.

I has breakfast with my senior friends. We were kind of bored by the same style breakfast in the hotel circle area. Perry's cafe was half full already when we got there about 7am. I ordered burrito with eggs. My big dish tasted good. You will be satisfied by its quality anf quantity.

we went there on Sunday morning around 9, it was quite crowded but they seemed to move them in and out quickly and we waited no more than 15 minutes. Menu had lots of breakfast items, enough to please the most discerning tastes. My spinach frittata was huge, lots of yummy cheese, tomato and bacon. Was a bit disappointed that... More

This is a legendary breakfast destination, and rightly so. Expect to have to wait to be seated, as it's mobbed weekday or weekend, but also expect really good food in plentiful quantities.

The place is packed. Lines out the door. The parking lot is huge. If you want a seat at the counter you need to hover. Otherwise, put you name on the list and wait. You'll be glad you did. The wait is fairly short as people are moved in and out quickly. Orders are taken and food delivered faster than... More
