We always have breakfast at extra perks when we visit Alexandria. The prices are inexpensive, food is great And staff are friendly. You order at the counter and buzzed when food is ready. The hazelnut coffee is our favourite, we will be back

We went for breakfast on a Saturday morning and we were able to get seated immediately. We both had pancakes and they were some of the best I have had. Very thick but not too heavy. Highly recommend this place for breakfast.

Good breakfast for reasonable price. Ate there three mornings in a row instead of at the breakfast buffet at the Crowne Plaza across the street (where I was staying). Skip the pancakes, A little oily. Eggs, bagels, BACON, good. Service at counter a little abrupt.

We had breakfast & lunch here a few times. The food was always very good and fast. Nice spot to enjoy a good quick meal. They have outside tables for the warm days also.

Neighborhood gem for a quality meal, efficiently served and very reasonablely priced. Crowded at times, but not too noisy. Worth a mile trip from downtown Old Town.

We enjoyed our breakfast one Saturday morning here. We both ordered the oatmeal pancakes which were hearty and really delicious. My one complaint would be that they serve these wonderful pancakes with the most awful syrup. I am a maple syrup snob and I really...More
