Popped in and tried the Perc Cafe. Brilliant. Friendly service. Amazing counter food and great menu options. Boys tried the mushroom breakfast which they loved. Seafood Chowder went down a treat and I had the salmon bagels. All exceptional.

Nice coffee and still serving late lunch. Not super hungry we went for the toasted granola,porridge as well as a brownie and the banana and cinnamon smoothie. Next door had already closed the kitchen. We would come back.

We had the chowder and it was tasty. Wonderful sourdough bread to. The cafe is relaxed and welcoming.

We saw reviews for the Perc and weren’t disappointed! I had the spiced mince and poach eggs (with some cheeky Hash Browns added on!) and my fiancé had the bacon buttie. What an awesome breakfast and cool spot!
