I love dropping in and getting a coffee and snack at The Perk. They have comfortable seating and are open late. Service is always fast and friendly, and the coffee is always delicious.

I often come to the Perk the first thing in the morning. They have great baristas who make beautiful coffee art. They also serve gluten free pastries. Who could complain?

Good home-made sandwiches with plenty of fresh filling (tasty chicken salad). Lots of extra seating upstairs. Always good coffee.

Unfortunately we, my wife and I, love straight black coffee and their bold (Italian) and medium (Ethiopian) were great. Based on the friendliness and professionalism, I am positive the make great coffee concoctions for those that like more complex coffees

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.

Description
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.
