My wife and I absolutely loved this beautiful place. We had a great time walking around the store looking at all the Collection of old furniture and everything. Then sitting by the front window and having a fantastic lunch. Wow very awesome. If ever in the area again we will be going for another great time and delicious food.

Located in the heart of the downtown historic district, inside a renovated two story gem of days gone by, you can enjoy the best food ever, from an excellent menu, with friendly service, and even a vegan menu for those so inclined! A must stop while in Historic Marshall.

Central Perks is always great. I'm sure all the menu items taste good, but I wouldn't know because I ALWAYS get the Don Parks (sandwich). I dream about this sandwich in my spare time! The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is awesome!

Delicious food and great spot to get coffee. Set in the downstairs portion of a 3-story antique shop with outdoor cafe tables available as well.

I have enjoyed everything that I have ever gotten there. The Chicken Salad is wonderful. They have off the cuff items that you wouldn't expect.

We visited Central Perks while attending HealthFest 2016. The building is really beautiful, and more than half of the area is like an antique mall. They had a buffet set up in the restaurant area with vegan dishes, which was what we chose. They did have a variety of items, but we felt most of the food was a little... More

Enjoyed our lunch at this former department store - Beautiful old building with huge windows to see everyone going by - Chicken salad was good - and so was tomato basil soup. Has a wide variety of antiques and new gift items. Nice staff to help you -

This is my default casual eatery when in Marshall. They put effort and detail into everything they do.
