The coffee is good, the service is a bit slow, but I think that has to do with make sure the drinks are good quality and a limited staff. The inside of the coffee house is roomy and the upstairs area is a great place to relax or work.

We needed a warm drink on a cold foggy day and walked into The Perk. The staff was helpful and made great suggestions. Our tea was incredible! The food being ordered looked amazing as well.

Love stopping here! Service is always friendly. Sometimes, this is not the fastest coffee stop, but it's worth it. We love the caramel mountain, but their regular coffee is delicious too.

One of the best local coffee houses for all of the above. Thankfully they also have a little food. Refills are not free, but very cheap. Wish they had more outlets.

When you think of Colorado Springs, you may think of the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak or the US Air Force Academy. And while those are all worthwhile attractions in our fair city, located right in the heart of the city, we pride ourselves on being not only a local coffee house, but kind of an institution as well. Offering a great deal more than coffee, our menu extends to give locals and visitors alike an amazing selection of loose leaf teas, fresh fruit smoothies, sandwiches and desserts. Sit down and stay a spell, and enjoy our complimentary wi-fi for a bit, too. Whether you're on your way to the office, stopping in between classes or just visiting our little corner of the world, we invite you in any day of the week. In fact, take a look at the specials we offer on any given day.
