We had breakfast here one morning while visiting Alexandra. We had the American breakfast which was good. The staff was friendly and service was also good.

The fluffy omelet from Extra Perks is better than most. The eggs are not overcooked or undercooked. That sets it apart from most places. The filling is fresh. The price is very reasonable.

We ate breakfast here every day we were in Alexandra. The selections are great, the pricing is reasonable and the atmosphere is very local. It was not unusual to see the local Alexandrite having breakfast in this nice clean restaurant. Loved it.
