Everywhere in town seems to have a severe fly problem, and this place I include in that group. We were trying to eat breakfast and it is gross to have flies swarming you. I understand that they keep the doors open, but it still feels unsanitary. We had two coffees which were not good--and we are not coffee snobs. A... More

Excellent coffee and sandwiches. The cupcakes and smoothies are good, too. Convenient location and outside patio. Staff are unfailingly helpful and pleasant. Fair prices.

This place was the cutest old style coffee shop ever. I knew we found a great place when the line was all the way out the door! Great coffee. Lots of choices.

We've been here 4 times in the last 3 days! The coffee and smoothies are amazing, and the breakfast pastries (croissants, cinnamon rolls, and donuts) are excellent! It's a good thing we don't live here or I'd be there all the time!!

Arnold's Perk is up on the main drag about a half mile from the amusement park. It's a quaint little brick building painted yellow with a handful of tables to sit outside. Inside, there is a cozy relaxed feeling. The walls are painted in pastel pink, blue and yellow. The ceiling is covered with antique square tiles. The whole place... More

Arnold's Perk is the best coffee shop, bakery, and sandwich shop on Lake Okoboji. Period. Their breakfasts and lunch menus offer respectable variety; the service is quick and with a pleasant smile; both indoor and outdoor seating are comfy and eclectic; and the munchies are delightful. And not too expensive. For breakfast, the 8-inch wide cinnamon rolls are enough to... More

This place feels like the Coffee Shops you see on TV. Small, quaint, comfortable and quirky. Good coffee and treats.

Stopped on my way out of town and got a muffin and a coffee... I decided to stay to enjoy these because a downpour had come in quickly. The latte was good -- but the muffin was really really good because I'm allergic to wheat and it was gluten free (and we NEVER get that kind of treat!). As was... More
