Great diner!! Atmosphere is fun, looks like a diner and has vintage memorabilia displayed. I had a fabulous BLT and perfectly crispy crinkle fries. Service was good too!!
As we passed through Granite City, Illinois, we were searching for a midmorning breakfast. A search on our maps program sent us to Perti Cafe as the closest. My very first impression was not good. A bland curb appeal. I was won over by the rave reviews of the locals and the owner who promptly met us as we sat down in this tidy Cafe in a business area. The owner, Larry, recommended eggs over easy. My eggs had bacon and my husband had pancakes. Both were served promptly and simply. This is NOT a fancy Cafe with a special plates and fancy decor. It's a mid west local diner that has probably changed very little from its inception in1946.... before I was born! I've definitely changed more than this location has, but it feels like home and the family is friendly. Local regulars are greeted and set on their way with friendly wishes and the atmostphere is non judgemental and simple....you order food, we make the food, you eat the food, you pay for the food and we are all happy. Our experience was really good and I recommend this location for a quick bite to eat, local conversation with welcoming atmostphere. The medium over eggs were perfect, the bacon was really good and the pancakes were very good ( according to my husband who inhaled them). Parking is right out front along the curb. We went on a weekend when it was quieter, but I imagine it's a busy location during the week. Tell Larry and Kathy, the owners, those coffee people from Mexico said " Hi".

Farm to table breakfast spot with biscuits and crepes. Very well done and great service. Menu seems to be heavy in goat cheese, which obvioiusly isn't for everyone. big portions, but didn't like the breakfast potatos. Needed more browning and didn't like bitter skins left on the potatoes. Fairly pricey for breakfast. Full liquor served.
