Perks Coffee Shop is a unique café located within the heart of UCSD. Upon entering you will be welcomed by the warmth of our talented Baristas and Perky the Squirrel; an assortment of sandwiches, salads, wraps, and pastries; and a wide selection of delicious drinks that will be sure to quench your cravings. The Perks environment is also a perfect study spot where we offer a range of seats from individual study tables, group tables, and a cozy corner equipped with a fireplace for de-stress.

Perks brews and serves only Barefoot Coffee Roasters coffee. Based in San Jose, CA, Barefoot partners with small coffee growers worldwide - some as small as only one acre - ensuring the best coffee experience and flavor every time. All of Barefoot coffees are direct trade. Our pastries, salads, and sandwiches are prepared fresh locally. We guarantee the finest flavors, quality ingredients, and an unparalleled customer service experience.

We dedicate every month to a member of our creative team at Perks where they have the opportunity to showcase their talent through the Drink of the Month. Perky the Squirrel also offers customers a chance to win a variety of prizes throughout the year through art contests as a way to say “thank you” to all of our loyal customers!

Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or a mid-day gathering, include a scrumptious selection of muffins, cakes, tarts, cookies and bars for that perfect mix. Perks is your ideal partner for every size meeting and department get together. Start with our travelers size box of premium and delicious Barefoot Coffee Roasters coffee.
