Caribou coffee isn't found on every corner like their well known competition (Starbucks) but they have a terrific and extensive menu to choose from as well as an extremely comfortable seating area. The crowds don't gather here as much as they do at Starbucks for...More

A great way to start your work day or start working for the day. Only downside is it's so busy, it's loud and bustling. Delicious menu, great staff. Visited every morning during my trip.

Overpriced, didn't keep cream area very clean, tables on street ignored. Needs to be tended to to get me back next time.

Rich coffee with great taste. Lots of choices and decent food options. I have now made this my normal coffee spot when I am in Chicago. I wish they were as wide spread as the other chain!

I went to Caribou both mornings for breakfast. The first time, I tried their real ginger ale and a coffee cake--both excellent! The second time, I ordered the raspberry iced black tea and an apple fritter--a fruity start to my day, but fantastic nonetheless. Definitely...More
