“Total rip off experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

7 am in August, they took order. We paid credit card $27. for 2 bagel breakfadt sandwiches, 1 small latte, one black coffee and one scone. Then, told espresso machine takes "awhile" (30 minutes!!) to warm up. Scone totally stale. I eventually give up on latte and settle for sm black coffee. Bagels were tiny w very little salmon as advertised and cold, when we ordered we got confirmation we could have "everything bagels" toasted. Saw owner "cook" come out to patio and pick up dirty dog dish and return w clean water for someone's dog. I asked why no "everything bagels" and he said they had them. He then launched into long, useless explanation of ordering tickets, blah blah, w no apology and an offer if "free breakfast nextime" not a real offer at all. Creepy and manipulative. Never going back, and I live in Harwich! And why can't they turn on espresso machine before opening? Argh...

“Great little coffee shop with nice outdoor setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Honestly shocked that this place was not on Trip Advisor until this review. Perks is a little coffee shop in Harwich Port center, located, I believe, right behind The Port Restaurant. The Coffee is excellent (closer to Starbucks than the bland offerings at Dunkin' Donuts), the iced frappes are tremendous, sandwiches are great and the baked goods are above average. There is no seating inside, but it has a huge outdoor patio with several tables and umbrellas. There is a huge firepit in the middle of the patio and they even have music on Friday and Saturday evenings. The outdoor firepit and entertainment combo is further enhanced by the fact that Perk's carries 5 or 6 bottled beer options. Great place.
