Perly's is a great place to eat with its art deco atmosphere, retro lamps on each table and jazz playing softly in the background.

Over 30 years and seven owners later, Perly's is still offering fresh food at reasonable prices. The great selection of sandwiches, soups, burgers and vegetarian dishes have established it as a mainstay in Richmond's downtown lunch scene. Try the popular Downtowner, a croissant sandwiching layers of turkey, Muenster cheese and bacon with mayonnaise. Another popular item is the curry stew that contains Perly's own freshly ground curry powder. Vegetarians love the meatless Reuben with its tomatoes, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing. Each day nine homemade soups and stews, freshly baked bread, rolls and pastries and desserts like cheesecake and pecan pie draw loyal crowds.
