I am participating in Robin’s Love Where You Live series. This week’s theme is restaurants.
Since I have lived in Great Bend, Kansas, less than two months, I have not discovered many local restaurants yet. I do, however, have a favorite – Perks Coffee Shoppe!
Food & Drinks
Even though Perks has a menu of cafe-style foods, I have only tried the baked goods. I enjoyed every type of cookie I have tried as well as the miniature cinnamon rolls, “Mini’s.” So far my favorite treat has been the blueberry scones. I do not have a usual drink yet because I keep trying their numerous flavors in my standard Americano. So far my favorite is a butterscotch Americano, hot or iced.
I like people-watching and observing the stories swirling through the shop. On various visits, there have been locals who work nearby stopping in for lunch, a ladies’ group playing cards, a couple planning the next leg of their road trip vacation.
This seems to be a good place to bump into people you know or to meet new ones! I have heard “catching up” conversations between people who apparently had not seen each other in months. I have also seen chatty strangers who struck up a conversation about the local water quality and water filter recommendations while waiting for their orders.
Disclaimer: I do not own this business and am not paid to recommend anything, I just like places that sell delicious coffee and pastries. Now, if someone offers me free stuff, discounts, etc. for saying nice things about them, I will be sure to let you know.
