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 decor, plus packaged Brit foods for sale at the rear of the dining area. We... More

Order food at counter and given pager or give your name. Service is prompt and food is good. There was a little hiccup with my pager. Went off early but food not ready. They tried to reset but kept going off. We had a fun time with that. Busy place and I can see why.

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.

We enjoyed our breakfast one Saturday morning here. We both ordered the oatmeal pancakes which were hearty and really delicious. My one complaint would be that they serve these wonderful pancakes with the most awful syrup. I am a maple syrup snob and I really dislike the FAKE stuff. Most of the type, the fake syrup at least TASTES like... More

We headed out for a morning walk to see Alexandria. We ended up looking for breakfast and came upon this cafe! A brilliant find! Small out of the way was exactly what we were looking for. Go early as locals fill this place fast. The menu has lots to offer with British accents. We ordered quiche and a standard American... More

I met with a bunch of friends and a few of our young children at this place and we had a pretty good time. It's not super big, so our group of 10 was probably bigger than most would find comfortable. Food was good and the servers were fairly friendly. The floors were pretty dirty, but not sure what you... More

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 choice for breakfast and lunchtime.

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 a latte or a bagel. Nothing fancy, but the perfect spot for a quick breakfast... 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, we only waited a few minutes to be seated in a very small dining area.... More
