The Perk Downtown an Authentic Coffee House

View Daily Sepcials

Your Local Coffee Destination

When you think of Colorado Springs, you may think of the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak or the US Air Force Academy. And while those are all worthwhile attractions in our fair city, located right in the heart of the city, we pride ourselves on being not only a local coffee house, but kind of an institution as well.

Offering a great deal more than coffee, our menu extends to give locals and visitors alike an amazing selection of loose leaf teas, fresh fruit smoothies, sandwiches and desserts. Sit down and stay a spell, and enjoy our complimentary wi-fi for a bit, too.

Whether you’re on your way to the office, stopping in between classes or just visiting our little corner of the world, we invite you in any day of the week. In fact, take a look at the specials we offer on any given day.

Check Our Hours & Location


While some people stop in daily for their cup of Joe, still others look for our special gatherings and events from backyard farmer Meet and Greets to Free B-Movie showings; it seems like we’ve always got something going on around here. We try to keep everyone informed about what’s going on, but if you’re interested, just ask. It may be a showing of The Night of the Living Dead (or something equally as zombiesque) or our monthly gaming nights. Sometimes, we even have money seminars or we get light-hearted and feature a comedy improv. You really just never know what we’ll come up with. And, if you’re interested in playing at The Perk, Contact us Today!!

All events are held at The Perk Downtown unless specifically specified and may be rescheduled or canceled due to inclement weather conditions. For any questions, please call our staff at (719) 635-1600. Interested in playing at The Perk? Contact us Today!!

About The Perk

the-perk-downtown-authentic-coffee-house-colorado-springsSo, what should you expect from us? First of all, we have great hours, open early morning until late nights. We have friendly faces ready to serve you, and comfortable spots to kick back and enjoy your cup and snack, breakfast or lunch. So whether we’re your end destination, a waiting spot to meet up with your friends or for the restaurant with the hour wait to finally call your name, you’re always welcome at our place.


What most people don’t know about us is that we actually own our very own roasting house. Located just a few blocks west of us in the Art District, we find we’re able to carry our own line of locally roasted Fair Trade Coffees. Why would we do such a thing? By owning our own roasting house, we found we could have more control over the quality of the coffee beans we bought, and quality has always been our number one goal. On top of that, we also employ one of the best coffee roasters in all of Colorado, Abigail Krueser. Yes, Abby has been roasting coffee with us for going on 20 years and not to brag or anything, but we happen to think she’s amazing. Her personal care shows in each and every cup. But one employee doesn’t make us the best, but the rest of our employees sure do.


At The Perk Downtown, we take it very seriously only to hire the very best employees and then, we train them our way, making them even better. Our baristas love what they do and it really shows in their service. If you ever thought the age of good customer service was dead and gone, think again. At The Perk Downtown, our employees are driven, giving the best possible customer service. After a repeat visit, they do their best to remember your name, and don’t be surprised when they know what you want to order, too. We’ve built a business here of employees, yes, but more than that…a family consisting of valuable, loving members who each contribute to greater good and enjoy what they do.


Store Hours:
Mon–Thurs: 6am–10pm
Friday: 6am–11pm
Saturday: 7am-11pm
Sunday: 7am–9pm

14 S Tejon St. Colorado Springs, CO



Now that you know exactly what to expect and you’re chomping at the bit to give us a try, it’d help to know just where we’re located. We are easy to find in beautiful Downtown Colorado Springs, in a sunny historical building, close to several businesses, shops and other local destinations.


If you think we’re one of those snooty coffee shops, or one of the run-of-the mill national chains you could find anywhere, you will change your mind when you walk through the door. Located in the heart of our great city, and right on the main drag through our beautiful downtown, we serve a wide demographic of people from the area. You’ll see business professionals, students from the nearby Colorado College, downtown shoppers, and neighborhood residents just dropping in for a cup. Some may be on the run to their next business deal and some may be relaxing and just want to kick back with a book or their laptop. Either way is fine with us, there’s plenty to eat and drink and the wi-fi is complementary.
