“My favorite little spot in Bryson City.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I just moved to Bryson City and on my second day here I stopped by Mountain Perks. I was looking for a relaxed environment with outdoor seating, good food and good drinks. I have only been here for a little over a week and I've already become a regular there (and I mean, every day sort of regular...). I found my perfect little spot to enjoy a good book and something to eat or drink. I have a gluten allergy and it's always disappointing to have to narrow down the menu to a small list of salads... Here, I don't have to do that! They have an excellent selection of gluten-free foods! The people there are so friendly and the environment is wonderful!

“Great coffee & Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We stopped in for breakfast before our hike to the summit of LeConte (in the Smokies). The couple running the shop was very friendly and cheerful and the atmosphere was cute and outdoorsy (photos, framed map of the Appalachian Trail). The food was good - an apple/cranberry bagel with maple cream cheese for me and a bacon, egg and cheese croissant for my husband. Their 'Black Widow' coffee was so good, I ended up buying a pound to bring home. I would definitely visit Mountain Perks again next time I'm in the Smokies!

“Great morning stop before hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Mountain Perks is great! We stumbled on it before heading out for the day. The food and coffee are wonderful and I appreciated the amount of gluten free options and almond milk. One of the owners, Jeff, also gave us great tips on hiking spots to check out- will definitely be back!

“Felt like a local the second I walked in the door.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Hands down my favorite coffee shop ever. Great personalities mixed with good gluten-free food and excellent coffee. The first day I walked in the door I felt like a local regular because that's how they treated me.
