With New Name, Coffee Shop Embraces Covington & Pike Street

In March, Uncle Buddy's Cafe opened at 222 Pike Street in Covington but has since changed its name to Perks on Pike. The operators of the coffee shop & lunch spot are reintroducing themselves here.

I’m not sure if you have noticed or not, but Covington is changing. The changes are slow in coming, but they are happening. There are so many examples of change going on around us right here on Pike Street, it’s amazing! Businesses are moving in and setting up shop. Buildings are being cleaned up, painted and restored to their original beauty. The Art Wall on Pike has been completed, in an effort to pursue an authentic art district. (If you haven’t seen the wall yet, you really need to see the picture of Nick Nolte with antlers.)

And most importantly the residents in the neighborhood are rallying to make Pike Street a safer, more beautiful community.

We want to be known as Pike Street’s local coffee shop/eatery. That is why we have changed the name to “Perks on Pike”. Our desire is to be identified with Covington and especially Pike Street. Since opening our doors in early March, we have been overwhelmed by the warm response from local residents and businesses. Some of our most successful days have been when we are invited to participate in local community events.

Several neighborhood groups have asked about scheduling their meetings here in the evenings after hours. We can and will accommodate you and your meeting schedule. Our shop is available for private parties, business meetings, and special events upon request. We have tried to be attentive to the suggestions and ideas of our customers. We have changed our days and hours of operation to better suit their desires. We are now open Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. We offer hearty, mostly healthy foods, and even offer some vegetarian and vegan items. We have a full breakfast and lunch menu with a delicious selection of hot, cold or blended coffee drinks.

We also offer a limited lunch time delivery service for our customers who are unable to get away from work. “Perks on Pike” is very excited to be a part of the growth and beautification that is happening in Covington. We hope that you will take a little time out of your busy schedule to see all the new perks on Pike Street. Like us on Facebook @ Perks on Pike.
