Just sharing about today at 3pm no one was kicked out of cafe was making drinks behind counter heard a child voice near restroom checked and door wide open carriage in front of refrigerator no one asked if we had restroom so when someone came out asked if she needed anything she went front of cafe so i asked are you waiting for someone she said no so asked if she wanted drink or food she said no and said she was waiting for bus which is not a problem just ask common courtesy also we have kids in the neighborhood in the morning on cold day come in and ask if they could wait this has never been an issue also was not pretending call the police was informing my boss about the situation .
Recommended by our hotel to try this place and it didn't disappoint! Very friendly staff who greeted us warmly with big smiles. Coffee was spot on and the menu has a variety of staples that one would enjoy for breakfast and lunch. My husband got the lox bagel and I did the Sarah bagel which had some bacon and eggs on it. We both highly recommend these choices. They had a lot of salmon on the lox bagel so you really feel as though you get your monies worth! As expected in the city, they have the standard street parking. We are walking everywhere so the lack of parking didn't bother us but be prepared you may not see a parking spot. Very intimate dining as it's a small cafe spot. Many were lingering over a morning cup of coffee and chatting it up. All in all, great spot for just about anything. We would come back! I know many mentioned no WiFi here but it's nice to experience a non chain coffee shop. So that didn't bother us at all.
Decent coffee. They have a limited selection of pastries and a full menu of sandwiches, both for breakfast and lunch. I think it’s more of a sandwich shop than a coffee shop. There are 4 booths, 3 hi-top tables, 2 small cafe tables by the window, and 3 cozy-looking chairs surrounding a coffee table. Seems to be a place people come for conversation and community, or reading a newspaper. I don’t see any students deep in their laptops (not that kind of place).
I’m only giving it 4 stars because it’s a bit pricey for what it is, but it’s not a cheap location to set up shop so I can’t blame them for charging what they charge.
Food and coffee were great. The service was fast and friendly. The ambiance was that of a classic coffee house.
This my my second time to Berkeley Perk. The man who helps you is just a breath of fresh air in Boston. I had a Turkey, Swiss, Avo sandwich. Construction was perfect. Bread, mayo, cheese, meat, avo, cheese, mayo, bread. Awesome! $5.88 cents. That does not exist in this city. ❤️
