Quality caffeinated drinks and homemade treats can be found at Opelika’s newest java shop, Perc-Fect Place Coffee.
Opened April 23 in the Tiger Square Shopping Plaza located past Tiger Town, the coffee shop possesses a laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere according to owner Paul Brumett.
“With the name ‘Perc-Fect,’ we’re not trying to say that we’re the best coffee place in town, we’re just trying to create an atmosphere that is either the perfect place to study or hang out,” Brumett said. “We have wifi, high-top and small tables, barstools and a couch. It’s a great place to come with a laptop to get some work done, and relax with the soft jazz music playing in the background while you enjoy a great cup of coffee.”
Brumett added that another unique aspect of his business is its wide offering of homemade desserts, which include cakes, cinnamon rolls and cookies.
Open 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Brumett said the shop will hold monthly events and occasional acoustic concerts by local musicians.
“Our rule-of-thumb here is offering great customer service, good price and quality product. Those (will be) our guiding principles,” Brumett said.
A joint grand opening ceremony with the Opelika Chamber of Commerce is scheduled for early June. For more information or updates, like and follow “Percfect Place Coffee” on Facebook.
The shop is located at 2701 Frederick Road, Suite 201.
