Let me start with with the fact that I am not a germ-a-phobe. In fact, I bet I will eat and ignore a lot of things you never would. However, after eating there many times, this is what happened. From the kitchen the food is placed in a small window with little space. The toast is on top of the... More

The service is terrible. I ordered a skillet and after eating the eggs I realized the skillet I asked for wasn't what I got. Even the toast, instead of white I got rye. The waitress said she wrote it down wrong but because I ate the eggs I had to pay for it. I can't eat mushrooms but she said... More

The food, specifically breakfast, is average to perhaps a little above average. The wait staff fluctuates from good to not so good. I grew weary of the constant personnel bickering and turnover so I no longer visit this location.

Typical breakfast menu, good service, good prices. Very casual. Friendly service. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but comfortable inside.

Nasty odor, cold food with a sickening flavor. The staff could care less how long your wait is, if the so called "food" is how or even what you ordered. Once it was dropped off never saw the waitress again until time to pay and even then had a difficult time getting her to move. We have eaten at this... More

I have been eating at Café Perks since it opened in Longwood. The staff is so friendly and eager to please. I love mom and pop type restaurants and this is one of the best. The menu is varied and everything I have eaten is great. My only problem is deciding what to eat. I eat there for breakfast and... More

Great service very good breakfast at an attractive price (properly made omelets which is a rarity). Southern cooking the way it should be done.
