Corner Perk Cafe, Bluffton, South Carolina.
After our race on Sunday morning we were both cold and a little hungry. The post race menu at the Palmetto Bluff Half was BBQ sandwich and bananas. Since we don’t eat meat we had to venture out for some hot food and coffee. Only a couple of miles away at the Bluffton Historic district there’s this little cafe that serves their own roasts and superb food. The Corner Perk Cafe. We were lucky to find a seat right away as the place was getting busy.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere is laid back with the leather sofas and table in the middle and also individual tables mainly with seating for two. The decor is eclectic and crafty. But the best of everything is the coffee!!! Shortly after we ordered breakfast the server came back with the coffee. They serve it on a pour-over tray right at your table. So while it drips into your cup right in front of you the aroma of fresh ground coffee is everywhere! This was a very special treat on a cold damp morning after a race. Breakfast arrived a few minutes later. Lisa ordered the French toast which looked very good and she said it tasted as good as it looked. I had two eggs with toast, fresh fruit and cheese grits. For those of you that don’t know what grits are, here you go! — “what the hell is a grit?” Joe Pesci, from the movie My Cousin Vinny.
Service was great and the food was excellent. Ok, I know you cannot mess up eggs and toast but the grits were so good and the fruit (pineapple and melon) very fresh.
This place is worth coming back although we don’t live here. Is one of these places that we are so glad we found and it filled all our needs for that day.
Mmmm now I’m craving coffee!
