“Excellent Coffee Shop, great place to wake up at!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

I've been enjoying Perk Ups wares for over 2 years now, I drop by at least once a week. I enjoy coffee the way my Drill Sergeant told me to drink it, strainght, black and hot. Perkup offers country varietals, with enough selection to to develop expertise and experience in what coffees come from where. Their coffee is fresh brewed, burped while brewing and free of annoying oils and varnish. The staff is friendly, they sell filters for my home Chemex (the ONLY way to fix home brew) and they sell fresh roasted unground coffee beans, the same beans they fix at the store. I see many friends here, and enjoy passing the time with Michael, Tera and Nick. Great brew, great business.

“The First Destination for Coffee in Cookeville”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Perk Up has the finest selection of coffee in Cookeville; there are other which are quite good of course but this is the top of the heap. Their excellent product is wedded to real craftsmanship by the baristas (try the Cup of Joy or my personal favorite, the Milky Way). Customer service is always friendly and conversational and the prices are very very reasonable. Perk Up has become a favorite meet-up destination in Cookeville because of the comfortable and relaxed ambiance. As my title states, if you are looking for good coffee in Cookeville start here.

“Great coffee spot! Drive thru too :)”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Don't let the outside fool you! This family run, funky spot serves up hot coffee, lightning bolt strong espresso and excellent pastries. A cozy side nook provides surprising privacy while other tables allow for comfy visiting with friends. The walls are papered with kids' drawings and good music plays in true coffee shop style. Also the drive thru will hook you up if you're in a hurry!
