Its competition was Starbucks, but CC recently closed and will reopen as a Peets. Stay tuned! Before. They closed , theirs was the best latte in town!

We’ve been doing the coffee/tea house circuit of downtown Royal Oak and Caribou Coffee is an interesting place to sit and people watch for a while. There are a variety of places around town where people have hooked up their computers and camped out for a few hours or the whole day while nursing a cup of coffee or tea.... More

Has a lodge living room feel. Elbow roominess to work, people watch or just sit back and relax. I met my sweetheart there.

Much better value. Nice environment. Coffee tastes better. Super friendly staff that remembers your face. They don't make you feel like you are being herded like cattle.

This was my husband and my first "unofficial date" place.... We hit it off and have been married for almost 4 years now. I'm not saying it was because of Caribou's coffee... but, they sure provided the laid back atmosphere to talk.... :)

If I've got down time, you'll probably find me here! This is my favorite spot to write, journal and grab a cup of Joe.
