Cozy vibe

Wide selection of coffee drinks, from traditional to extra-sweet. The friendly staff makes it feel like a small coffee shop rather than a chain.

I am a Starbucks fan, but must admit they have a pretty good strawberry banana smoothie here. I will say they are a bit on the pricy side but the service is fast and the atmosphere is fun!

This is a nice place, and the coffee is good, but the food selection is limited (they need some non-sugary alternatives like croissants and bagels) and it gets VERY crowded in this small place. The do have quite a few outside tables which are good during the right weather conditions. This place is nice, the staff is VERY friendly, but... 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.

Caribou Coffee is a wonderful place to have a casual business meeting. The coffee is good and the seating is comfortable. On nice days I particularly like the outdoor seating. 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
