“This is what a diner is supposed to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We were looking for a place to eat lunch before getting on the auto-train and stumbled on Cafe Perks. We are diner-fanatics and this is the real mcCoy: a place where the waitresses joke around with regulars and newcomers alike, with a daily "blue plate special" and just plain good food. I ordered a grilled cheese and bacon ... except that here it is listed as "grilled bacon and cheese", which was really accurate. The sandwich was loaded with bacon. Of course, we aren't talking gourmet fare, but it was good as any grilled cheese I've had. Good french fries; great cole slaw and very reasonable prices. My husband had an excellent club sandwich and when he asked for extra mayo ... they brought a squeeze bottle ... not just a tiny dab in a cup. The posted list of daily blue plate specials looked great (typical home-made offerings like meat loaf, fish fry and chicken fried steak) and most were $7 or $8 with sides. Wish we could have stayed for dinner! Staff is happy, friendly and accommodating. By all means, if you're passing through, stop in.

“good breakfast food, good diner, very good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

have been here for breakfast, about 4x, and it has always been good; the waitresses are very nice and do a good job. the decor fun to look at, and the people watching good. i think that they serve everything all day, because as we were finishing b'fast last time, a chubby husband and wife with chubby daughter came in, and sat at table next to us. they were regulars, and the 10 yr old-ish girl ordered their roast beef sandwich without looking at the menu and was squirming in her seat in anticipation; despite the chub family factor and wanting to throttle the parents, it was very cute

“Great Breakfast, nice diner atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

The waitress worked hard and kept the coffee full. They had a three egg special, no meat for only $3 that included toast and grits, or homefries. They have all kinds of military honorary stuff saluting our solders.
