  • Perks Coffe & Cafe will open in summer on Clearview Parkway.
Metairie’s coffee corridor will get another drive-through option when Perks Coffee & Cafe (4300 Clearview Parkway) opens this summer. 

The cafe is the project of husband-and-wife team Ashley and David Varnado. Ashley is the chef behind the operation and David, a coffee industry veteran who has managed several cafes in the area, will handle the coffee.

Ashley says the idea for the cafe has evolved for years as she noticed a lack of healthy  options at area drive-through restaurants. The concept joins a crop of nearby coffee shops, but the Varnados say their concept will focus on freshly prepared foods to go.

“As a parent, you just don’t always have time to cook,” she says, adding that the menu will feature classic cafe fare including breakfast pastries, soups, sandwiches and salads.

“We’ll do a lot of steamed vegetables and baked and grilled items,” she says. “Everything is fresh and local. Nothing is coming off of a Sysco truck.”

There will be inside seating as well.

They expect to offer coffee from a local roaster.
