Perk Up is a little espresso bar located at 610 Collins street, just before the Spencer Street intersection. They’re a great little coffee place, but with a great variety of food for breakfast and lunch.
My favorite part about the place, however, would have to be the music. They’re always playing some old fashioned Latino samba, so that by the time my coffee is ready my Chilean background has kicked in and I’m dancing along to the beat. It’s only a little embarrassing.
Highly recommended for a quick coffee and snack. Their website is here.
