The small town of Perkasie, PA packs quite the punch when it comes to fresh, local dining. So, if you’re out looking at Homes For Sale, take a break and check out some of these great dining options! Maize is my all time favorite for the area. Reservations required, BYOB, but probably one of the best dinners you will ever have. Friday lunches with my girls wouldn’t be the same if they weren’t at The Perk! Hawkeyes, The Country Place (you cannot get a cheaper, better meal!), and Rise & Grind are also excellent choices. Opening Dec 2020 is The Ram located on Chestnut Street right down from the borough hall. Ready for a quick treat? Check out Rita’s and Dairy Queen!
