I wouldn't say their coffees and pastries are particularly exceptional, they're okay at best. But more than their menu, what sets Perk Avenue a cut above the many coffeeshops we have around is the perks you get- cozy space, comfy chairs, free parking, unlimited internet, really nice interiors, mellow ambiance, and the We Didn't Start The Fire wall. Plus they serve pretty good coffee too.

Perk Avenue: Coffee, Internet, and the We Didnt Start The Fire Wall

It was this coffeeshop that we found one night while cruising along Presidents Avenue in BF Paranaque looking for caffeine (and Starbucks was packed). When I first saw the coffeshop’s signage, I was reminded of Central Perk, that fictional coffeshop where the gang from the TV series Friends hung out. But the  similarities of Perk Avenue and Central Perk end with their names. 
Coffee!
Unlike Central Perk that had a suburban living room look and feel- bright and homey but with a countertop and a cashier, Perk Avenue’s interior resembles something like a dad’s den- with warm walls, dim lighting, easy chairs, and a relaxing mood. It’s a place where you’d want to settle down in a comfy chair, drink your coffee, read the paper, or surf the Internet (yes, they have free and unlimited WiFi).
The counter and wooden chairs in the middle.
Although not seen in any of my pictures, cushy couches are lined up along the glass wall panels of Perk Avenue and there are also tables and chairs outside for people who want to smoke. Connection to the Internet is free and unlimited, you just need to ask for the WiFi password after ordering. Since discovering this nice place years ago, my friends and I have dropped by every now and then just to hang out. This is what perked up our night last weekend-
Brew of the day: Long Black (p75)
Christmas Blend: Vanilla Roast (p115)

Their tagline is cute- “Coffee… Love… best served HOT.” The brew of the day was smooth black brewed coffee, plain and simple but it does the job. The foamy vanilla roast was a good blend that needed no additional creams or sweeteners. Both were good, but I would have liked it better if they served their coffees in thick mugs.

Fudge Brownie (p55)

This fudge brownie is great; it’s moist, chewy and chocolate-y, although a bit too small for its price. Perk Avenue prices are slightly lower than more popular coffeeshops but are reasonable enough considering that you get to hang out for as long as you want in a comfy setting with free Internet and wall sockets (I used to spend Sunday afternoons there, on my laptop with just a cup of coffee when the DSL at home was wonky).

Possibly the coolest thing about Perk Avenue is their “We Didn’t Start The Fire Wall”-

“Harry Truman, Doris Day, Red China, Johnny Ray..”
Covering the wall leading to the restroom are pictures of the lyrics to Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start The Fire (if by any chance you haven’t heard the song ever, click here to see the music video). Everytime he’s there, the partner in crime never fails to stare at this wall and start singing the chorus in near falsetto (I’m not even close to kidding).
