Great coffee

The coffee is always good here. They have a nice selection of baker items and oatmeal. A large group of us came for mid morning coffee. The kids had hot chocolate while we enjoyed our coffee.

Caribou was a great little coffee place without the uppity snobbiness of Starbucks. Unfortunately it's now closed and Peets is in its place. I now recommend heading to Boatyard Bagels for coffee, Peet's lacks quality, friendliness, and taste.

Wow! I love what Peet's has done with the former Caribou. The atmosphere is refreshing, clean in design and a very pleasant experience. The new Holiday Blend coffee was very good. I would get it again. This location is one of our favorites in Lake Geneva. It is one block from the waterfront with a view of the water, and... More

Just a real nice place to bring your lap top, settle in and enjoy a marvelous coffee or more exotic drink. I've sat there both for pleasure and to do a little work. Much better option that Starbucks which is a couple block away.

Met a group of gal pals here for a meeting and beverage. The prices were reasonable, the hot chocolate was delicious and the store was very clean. There were lots of other people doing the same kind of friend get together throughout the store. Sorry to hear they are closing at the end of the year!

What can you say, this is the neighborhood ‘little coffee house’ created by a big chain. This isn’t the “bucks”, it’s the ‘Bou. This one has such a rich, warm, inviting feeling, great selection of the usual and the not-so-usual. Great, attentive, friendly staff that seems to really care about what they do. Love stopping in here any hour of... More
