Caribou sold out to Mr. Peet's. The décor, which use to be quaint in a positive sense, is now cafeteria style in appearance. Most disappointing is the specialty coffee. I tried the café latte and the cappuccino and they were both inferior with poor taste! I had the cappuccino made over and it was only marginally better on the second... More

Caribou Coffee has been acquired by Mr. Pete's Coffee. The name has been changed accordingly. The inside has been remodeled. The staff is the same and the menu is not terribly different. It is just fine for what it is. Nothing to write home about.

As i understand it, this place is set to change its name soon because it has been acquired by another coffee company. Keeping my fingers crossed that the quality will not go down after the merger! In meantime, still great coffee is being served here. One thing, I hope the new company will spruce up the interior!

This coffee shop has some of the downsides of coffee shops everywhere. Customers with computers who hog tables intended for more than one person. That said, the coffee is good, the decor is cozy, the staff are friendly, and the treats are also tasty. WIth both indoor and outdoor seating at the Fairfax Corner location, you won't have a problem... More

Caribou serves great coffees. On this occasion, a friend and I had Mocha and Café Latte respectively. The service is friendly and quick. The place is looking a little tired and could use a good sprucing up of furniture and restroom facilities!

I had coffee after lunch at Coastal Flats and ice cream at Ben & Jerry's. A nice little triad. The mocha coffee mix is particularly appealing here! Better than Starbucks in my opinon. The bathroom for men's is just awful. Small, no stall for the john and not that clean. They need to take some action on this!

We love this place and are sad there are fewer Caribous in the area. Baristas are always friendly and the drinks are consistently good - try the full rack hot chocolate if you haven't before!

Caribou makes a great cup of coffee. I recommend this place. Yesterday I had a medium size of Mocha with the chips in the cup and enjoyed it immensely. This is a very popular place with lots of people enjoying their laptops, phones, etc. Only beef is that the bathroom is not well set up. There is no privacy in... More

This Carribou is a very nicely decorated and laid out location. The staff is always nice and make sure orders are correct.

A friend met me for lunch yesterday at PF Chang's we had dessert at Ben and Jerry's and coffee at Caribou. The special coffees at Caribou are always good! Try a different one each time. This time it was Mocha for me and Cappuccino for my friend. Both were enjoyed. One thing I do not like about this place is... More
