Good coffee

I like their coffee better than Starbucks. Nice and clean place. Friendly employees and quick service. I wish they had drive thru but the location is not suitable for it.

On consecutive week day evening visits my wife and I received rude service. Last week they charged an extra dollar for ordering a hazelnut cooler because "there wasn't a button to ring it up". I complained and both workers rolled their eyes at me. She was even rude in the interaction with my 8 year old over the 10 cent... More

Needed a quiet place to just chill. Even though the place was quite busy I was able to have my mocha & relax in peace! Service was quick & friendly.

Great place to meet and talk, or to just sit back in a big comfy chair next to the fireplace and read your book, or check out the net. Friendly baristas make sure your order is delivered perfectly.

No bitterness like the big buck$ place, better service, better atmosphere, and better prices too. Locally owned here in Minnesota. Seasonal drinks are my favorite. Northern vanilla cooler in the summer, pumpkin spice in the fall, and ho ho white mocha with peppermint sprinkle for the holidays. Correct answer for the question of the day gets you 10 cents off...

I don't have any favorite locations as many appear to do great job making all drinks the same anywhere. I come here once in a while and mostly order mocha ... Never had a bad coffee here, so I have to give excellent! Service has also been fast and they all appear to be happy to be there.

As is typical of all coffee houses, the coffee is excellent. The place has a nice warm ambiance. However the food has no variety and there are sadly no donuts. Very expensive.

Visiting here from Washington state and decided to try the local brew. I asked them for a recommendation and the barista told me the mochas were their claim to fame. I'd always thought Starbucks mochas were extraordinary so thus would be a good test. I admit Caribou dark chocolate mochas are the winners plus double shot talks are the standard,... More

It's Caribou, it's coffee but it is always good, hot, strong and although expensive, it is good. I like it better than the other coffee houses in town.
