There's no Starbucks for miles around, but you don't need to worry about finding great coffee on your road trip through Indiana. The Perfect Day Cafe's dark roast coffee was excellent and the plain cafe latte expertly prepared. The town itself is worth a stop to stretch your legs. A bakery is scheduled to open across the street soon.

The place is nice, cleaner than average. The breakfast was average at best. I am pretty sure they were short handed on wait staff, so I can't comment on that, except to say that she did the best and could - I felt bad for her.

Pleasant atmosphere, good coffee my eggs were cooked perfectly, and the staff was really nice. Don't get the biscuits and gravy. The biscuits were hard and kind of doughy in the middle and the gravy was tasteless.

It was just ok. I felt that it was definitely over priced for average food. Nothing to rave about, but nothing was terrible. It definitely falls in the average range. I did enjoy the display of local art work. That is probably the only reason to go back.

Great stop in North Vernon for breakfast or lunch. Recently enjoyed the breakfast special - anything you want in your omelet-ran it thru the garden plus sausage-delicious!! Included hash browns and toast! Carmel latte was fabulous and the atmosphere friendly and clean. This is well worth your time to stop. They also have a good lunch menu. Owner is usually... More

Try the artichoke sandwich! It's delicious and it comes with chips and a delicious pineapple salsa! They have great seasonal salads too!

Every time I go to Perfect Day Cafe, the coffee is perfect and the staff is friendly and accomodating. I agree with the last reviewer that the chicken salad sandwich is excellent. But so are the specials. The Cafe has wifi that you can hook into as well. Hands down, this is the place to go for lunch!. I see... More

I had my first visit to the Perfect Day Cafe today and I will definitely be a repeat customer. I ordered the chicken salad- which was a risky venture for me as I'm very fussy about my chicken salad- but I was pleased to find that it was extremely good! I'm really looking forward to trying some of their other... More
