About Us

Coralee, Mike, and Roan

We’re a historic cafe located in the heart of the picturesque City Park neighborhood. The City Perks name has been quite well known in its 20 years as a cafe. Having undergone extensive renovations throughout the 10 years under Mike Dahlen and Coralee Abbott’s ownership, the cafe now exudes a warm & inviting European flair. We pride ourselves on being a vital part of this charming  neighbourhood and have become a “destination” cafe for those around our fabulous city as well.
Our attention to detail is evident in all that we do. We partner with local like minded businesses and we hire our team members based on personality & passion to better enhance our customer service and commitment to creating a “family” and “community” environment.  We train the necessary skills to master the art of becoming a barista,  and involve our partnership with 49th Parallel Roasters throughout this process.
Our food is scratch made and sourced locally whenever possible.  We love tantalizing your taste buds and providing fresh, flavourful light fare to enhance your City Perks experience. Our desserts are decadent and creative. Our display case is a regular sell out with cheesecakes and tortes being our pride & joy. We also offer breakfast & lunch catering and we sell whole cakes. We pride ourselves on having a rotating menu with gluten free options available to those with dietary restrictions. We are NOT a gluten free environment, however we are as” friendly ” as we can possibly be.
Our patio is a popular gathering for friends and the community to embrace our warm Saskatchewan sunshine in summer and our cafe inside offers the same warmth to those seeking solace and community during our frigid winter temperatures. Our walls are decorated by the talents of local artists and we’re passionate about community and all that Saskatoon has to offer.
Our 5 boys have been seen clearing tables, washing dishes,  sweeping floors and greeting customers as it takes a whole family to love and invest their time with those who choose to spend their time with us.
Growing each and every year, with ever changing ideas, surrounded by a beautiful neighborhood,  just moments away from the river paths. ..well, why not come and see us for yourself. We look forward to meeting each & every one of you.
City Perks-fresh, light, local
