I believe I ate at this restaurant 8-9 years ago, as when I walked in the door over the weekend, the overall charming feeling came rushing back. Located right off the main town square, Perk Avenue Cafe & Coffeehouse is the perfect place to go in and grab a cup of coffee or latte to hold while strolling the streets....or... More

We walked in to get a couple of iced teas while we were visiting the downtown. After waiting at the counter for a few minutes to be acknowledged by a barista, they didn't take our order after greeting us and left to help another customer. We finally left empty handed after she ignored us and started talking to her co... More

Stopped in for my morning latte. I'll admit, normally a Starbucks junkie, so that's my baseline. Order a vanilla latte and took it to go and out the door. When I sat back down at a borrow work space to start my day, I tasted the latte. It was well, unspectacular to say the least. Honestly, had to dump it... More

There is nothing good about this place. We found a hair in our food and the food was awful. Do not go here. The coffee is burnt and tasteless. The staff are lazy and the place was empty at lunch time. Avoid avoid avoid. Fruit isn't fresh.

While on tour, I was put up at a hotel in Madison. I'm a proud coffee snob, so rather than settling for hotel coffee, I walked 3 miles to Perk Avenue. Greatest decision I made that day. Friendly staff, a delicious Americano and tasty pastries. I stop every time I'm driving through now. Plus, the town is such a quaint... More

. . . is the opportunity to leave the Interstate and find small and historic communities off the trail. Madison, Georgia is that type of place, and Perk Avenue is a jewel. We stopped for coffee and a light lunch and were not disappointed. The service was friendly and personal. The coffee and peach iced tea were wonderfully flavored. My... More

Stopped by on the way to Macon, GA after a trip to SC. I ordered a South West salad which was wonderful! Very cute place with great service and friendly staff. I wouldn't hesitate to stop again

Very casual breakfasts with excellent coffees and teas. Lunch and dinners with frequent live music. Very noisy on music evenings, but fun.

Hard to decide with so many options, finally choose a Build it Yourself Quesidilla, choose six items two flour tortillas and heated under a panninni iron. Wife got a Hot Wrap with deli sliced beef, it came with a healthy side of fresh fruit.

Right downtown, this is one of those coffee houses that you hope for when you visit a new town. Clean, comfortable, decent variety for food, excellent variety for coffee, and lots of comfortable seating.
