Perks offers great coffee, delicious sandwiches you can design yourself, wonderful soups and salads, and delicious pastries. This is my go-to place to meet friends for long chats over a leisurely lunch ... no one ever rushes us, and our lunches have been known to last for several hours! Highly recommend!

Perks is an OK place and I like taking my grandchildren there. However they now have only 1 child's high chair. I asked about this last November and was told that 'someone had broken the other one'. 3 months later, I asked again and got the same story.....but no high chair!

I have a shellfish allergy. It's not bad enough that I can't be in the same room as shellfish but bad enough that I carry EpiPens. I brought a client into Perks and we ordered coffee and two caesar salads. I ordered the regular and my client ordered the Shrimp Caesar. I told the girl taking our order that I... More

This is a really fun and nice place to go for couples, families or by yourself to eat. They have a large variety to choose from and everything is so tasty, I love their potato salad and chicken salad sandwich, and then you must have a pastry, who could resist, not me. They also have live entertainment on thursday and... More

Make this your coffee spot! Besides offering a variety of flavors for hot or iced coffee they have a great lunch menu that includes sandwiches salads and more. The staff is friendly and has a great atmosphere not to mention amazing looking desserts!

Came here to try out due to reviews. It is a very nice place to relax with a good cup of Joe. It has a relaxing atmosphere and it draws a good crowd. If you don't like Starbucks give this place a try. Bring your computer or phone or just have a conversation. I am doing my review on my... More

I absolutely love this spot. From winter to summer, the taste of coffee never fails. They offer countless incredible flavors for iced coffees (banana hazelnut, for example). Also, the raspberry lime rickey is perfect - maybe the best in the greater Boston area. There is quite a lot of seating for a coffee shop, so it's very easy to sit... More

Always love stopping here for a snack. I'm very into tea, always buying loose leaf, and this is one of the few places I've been where you can actually get good quality loose leaf tea in a coffee shop. Their coffee is also excellent and I enjoy the pastries. Environment is casual, nice art work.

Perks is one of those places that takes you back to smalltown living. The local coffeshop where everyone knows everyone and the beverages and food are both truly amazing. Sit down, you won't feel rushed and enjoy your stay. They also have live music which is out of this world. If you want to feel at home with great food... More
