Whatever the weather and whatever your mood, The Perc is bound to satisfy, whether it’s a hot day and you’re after some dairy-free ice cream, or it’s miserably cold (let’s be honest, probably more likely) and you’re on the hunt for a big bowl of soup to warm your spirits.
Carefully crafted Allpress coffee is on offer, as well as a wide variety of juices, milkshakes and other healthy tonics. With a wide range of gluten-free items, an extensive breakfast and brunch menu (the kitchen uses free-range eggs) and sandwiches and salads made fresh daily in their kitchen, you’ll soon find something for everyone at this cosy, warm café located just next to the Octagon at the top of Stuart Street.
The Perc is most famous for their sweet treats, with an enormously tempting array on display at their counter, including cinnamon scrolls (best be early for those!), cakes, muffins and pastries.
If you’re a surfer looking to catch some wifi, the café also has free internet available. So curl up in front of their large windows, grab whatever you feel like and enjoy a fine selection of magazines. We recommend the spot by the small electric fireplace located near one of the front windows, a perfect cubby to read the paper on a cold winter morning.
