A suave, cool little joint on Balboa Boulevard, Perk's is just the hip place Northridge needs. With a 1940s style and cozy decor, this coffee shop has the food to match the looks. The menu features delicious pastries and even better coffee. The chairs are comfortable, the wi-fi free and the service friendly. The sandwiches and paninis deserve their own praise - especially when enjoyed in front of a fire pit on the patio.
