I generally stay at a motel within walking distance of this coffee shop. Every morning That I am at Lake Omoboji, I walk up to this coffee shop to read the morning paper and drink my coffee. You can buy pastries and some other snack items to go with the coffee. I think this is the best coffee shop at... More

Great place to sip on a decent (but not great) cup of coffee while watching the Lake Okoboji community buzz around you. Unfortunately, seating is very limited and lines are often long when us out of towners are around.

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

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
