For a place that looks like a mom and pop and says "best breakfast in town" in huge letters on the side of the building, it just isn't so. If you like Denny's frozen/reheated food and Folgers coffee, you'll probably love this place. As for...More

We decided on Perry's based on the very high ratings we saw on TripAdvisor. Although breakfast was acceptable we didn't find it much more than average. It really wasn't worth the wait. It is also rather noisy and they cycle customers in and out as...More
