Passion for taste and the patience for quality are the principles Arcadia was built on. Baguettes are made from scratch each day which leads to a better sandwich. Croissants are rolled with care resulting in the best flaky layers and butter flavor. Add in fresh roasted coffee, precisely pulled espresso and you are really on to something great! We don’t stop there—we branch out into thoughtful soups, salads, and small plate entrees. Our chef’s work with local purveyors to bring you a fresh and unique experience. Our alcohol engineers are always experimenting and refining their craft to present you with a balanced, delicious and unique cocktail. Our staff is here to make sure your experience is a slice of paradise in Ames—Welcome to Arcadia!

Our Method

Pour Over



Our Sources

A variety of single origins are available as well as our customized blends. Our baristas can point you in the direction of a brew you are sure to enjoy.

Coffee is seasonal and truly offers us “taste of place”. We roast to bring out the unique flavor of each origin. We can taste the difference of small batch roasting and we think you can too.



SATURDAY & SUNDAY: 9am-3:30pm

kitchen closes 30 minutes prior to doors

Coffee, pastries and breakfast sandwiches in the morning, lunch at noon, and small plates, beer, wine and cocktails in the evening—we have you covered. We love spending time with our families so we have reduced hours around the holidays—thank you for understanding! You may always check in with our website and social media.
