Perkins began as a single humble Ohio pancake house in 1958. More than 50 years––and 440 national locations––later, each Perkins restaurant stays true to its roots by keeping those signature buttermilk pancakes the focal point of a 90-plus-item menu. Cooks layer the popular flapjacks in stacks of two, three, or even five and make the fluffy towers all the more tempting with toppings such as glazed strawberries, whipped cream, or flavored syrups. Breakfast favorites—including hearty omelets and country benedicts—are served all day, meaning kids and adults can order short stacks to accompany their jumbo-shrimp or steak dinner, instead of smuggling them in under a stovepipe hat. Unlike most other chain restaurants, Perkins also features in-store bakeries that churn out the shop's real fruit and cream pies, muffins, and chocolate-chip cookies.

Twist & Grind Cafe is part frozen yogurt shop, part coffee shop?plus waffles. Honey Hill Farm frozen yogurt flavors rotate on a weekly basis, and include options as varied as sea-salt-caramel pretzel to mango sorbet and triple chocolate, alongside Honey Hill Farm gelato and sorbet. Topping choices range from traditional to seasonal. In fact, made-from-scratch and seasonal offerings are essentially the cafe's theme. Granola bars are handmade daily, and of course, there are plenty of coffee and tea drinks to pair with eats, as well as protein shakes, fresh-fruit smoothies, root-beer floats, and the popular and vegan coconut chia pudding.
