After an early MRI at Carle hospital we needed breakfast. Perkins has some great menu options (I tried a "Smash", Cyndi had their potato pancakes... Both very good) but what brings is back is the service. We haven't had a bad experience there.

I like ordering breakfast any time of day. This seems to be a good test of the kitchen since they must be prepared for it at all times. Perkins didn't disappoint.

We have been here twice now as its adjacent to our hotel and gives us a discount as well. There is a decent menu range and the decor is sort of 'modern diner'. It's open 24x7 although we have only had dinners there. The table...More

Had a breakfast scramble that took too long to see. Food was ok. Bakery looked ok. Not the best service. Steak and Shake gives better service and more smiles. Sort of pricey.
