What awaited us at the end of a long, hot (but scenic) drive from Los Angeles was nothing short of perfection. The Desert Pearl Inn is adorable!

Oscar's Cafe

Restaurant | "Oscars"

Have breakfast at Oscars in front of hundreds of yellow sunflowers with dozens of hummingbirds flitting about your head. The cafe is located for the most part outside, and that is where you want to be in Springdale, let me tell you! The service was wonderful and the food was fabulous.
