Been there for breakfast primarily. Wonderful crepes (got mine filled with eggs and sausage and cheese) and decent coffee. For some reason, though, they can't get it together with their home fries... all dried up, overcooked, some a fork couldn't pierce. Such an odd item for them to do so poorly, especially when their crepes are so good. Don't get... More

I love it here. They have other locations as well. Food is fresh and the menu has many options. The crepes are superb. The sweet ones are just as fabulous as the savory. I love their wraps and quesadillas. Soup is always fresh! Coffee is excellent and I appreciate that that compost. I love that it is not a chain... More

My husband and I grabbed a quick bite to eat at Perk on Main! I had the chicken cashew chicken and hubby had the chicken quesidilla! Both we're awesome! The staff is great and don't miss their chai tea!!!

Love the concept of the café, staff was friendly, but at the end of the day it is the quality of the coffee that matters and that is where Perk came up short. I ordered an iced latte, and bitter isn't really even the right word for it, just tasted completely off. I don't think I can blame it on... More

Everything about this small storefront says charm. Homemade pastries, large crepe menu, additional lunch and breakfast options. Enjoy unique treats such as "brie-berry crepes", nutella and banana, spinach,feta, onion etc... The crepes are all pancake style, not a savory buckwheat. The restaurant buys wind energy, composts, and recycles everything. You just feel good eating here. Worth a stop off the... More

By far, the best place in the area to get crepes...they offer a whole array of them, from sweet and fruity to savory. They also offers great sandwiches, muffins, cookies, etc., but I go for the crepes!

A friend and I stopped for lunch last week and were pleasantly surprised by the authentic French crepes being made to order at Perks On Main. Delicious! Home made soups; delicious coffee and tea selections and happy, friendly staff. This is the kind of place you want to linger and gaze out the back toward the countryside. We bussed our... More

My husband and I visited Perk on Main for the first time, as they were having an open mic. We ordered a wrap and a sandwich, as well as their vegetarian chili. My chicken wrap was very good, as well as my husbands sandwich and chili. It took a very long time for the food to come to the table,... More

Ordered a sandwich at 11:40, took about 35 minutes for it to come out. Food was decent but nothing that takes that long to prepare. Staff is young and semi friendly but a bit unorganized, I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone who is looking to be in and out under an hour; for a small cafe that is too... More

We stopped there on a Sunday afternoon for coffee. The coffee was good but we were both turned off by the lack of cleanliness here. The floors were in sore need of sweeping and I happened to look down on the floor next to my table and spotted a dirty fork lying there. For how long, who knows. The restroom... More
