Fast service and terrific coffee are the hallmark of this coffee chain. When I arrived around 7 pm, there was no wait at all. This coffee stop lacks the pretension associated with Starbucks -- so it's pleasure.

On a sunny Saturday morning around 9, the coffee shop’s parking lot was almost full. Entering this shop, I found a country-style architecture with unpainted wood columns and ceilings. Five seniors sitting by a fireplace either chatting or reading papers, while two college-students-like patrons were...More

The servers where very personable and pleasant. Almost too cheery for some of us jet lagged early morning abstainers (ha!). The St. Bernard puppy we brought through on the drive-through increased the smiles on their faces even more. Thanks staff!

The atmosphere is great at Caribou. Seems to always be busy. The coffee is ok. Would be nice to have an iced latte without coffee grounds in it. Dessert options are limited to muffins or pre-packaged candy.

Great place to get online, service is delightful and the coffee mocha [with whipped cream] is wonderful. I know it's a chain, but it's one of my favorites.

I like the drive thru that is close to work and it doesn't flow at a snail's pace. Service is a little unfriendly both at drive thru and inside. Too bad.
