Extra Perks is located in a peaceful neighborhood, tucked in among a number of other local retailers. We located it while searching the web for informal brunch eats, and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is quite informal, decor is comfortable with a sort of coffeehouse...More

We had breakfast & lunch here a few times. The food was always very good and fast. Nice spot to enjoy a good quick meal. They have outside tables for the warm days also.

Neighborhood gem for a quality meal, efficiently served and very reasonablely priced. Crowded at times, but not too noisy. Worth a mile trip from downtown Old Town.

When you can see PG tips, Heinz ketchup, Weetabix, HP Brown sauce on the tables and the rules of cricket on the wall, it's comforting to find a few home favourites on offer. Add on some US style variations and you have a great menu...More

Local breakfast/lunch eatery with a wonderful menu for coffee, eggs and sandwiches. A bit of an international flair, with bangers, omlets, fetta and scones. Like I said, eclectic. The food is quite good, and there seems to be a lot of locals stopping in for...More

My husband and I spent a small "stay-cation" in Old Town, and decided to visit Extra Perks on our way out on a Sunday since it was several blocks away in a more residential neighborhood. We arrived around 10am, and it was very busy! However,...More
