The do have quite a few outside tables which are good during the right weather conditions. This place... read more

We wanted to try this place since we don't have them at home. Worst coffee ever, tasted old and was not sweet at all. I got a iced caramel high rise. I will stick with Starbucks

Really enjoyed the coffee, friendly service and hospitality. If you are tired of SB then give Caribou a try. I think you will enjoy it.

The drive through is fast and efficient. Refills on standard coffee are free. The fake fire place is a little hokey. When our Internet service goes out at home we... More

The coffee here was not bad but not great. It was worse than starbucks, but the same price, so not worth it

16 years later and wondering if it was the coffee at Caribou that turned our first date there into bliss. We still drink their coffee! Wish our original Caribou wasn't now a bank.
