Caribou Coffee can be a long wait due to the tourists that are around on a busy summer weekend. Depending on the staff, the wait can be quite long. Other than that it can be a typically nice caribou experience where the coffee is good and the staff are friendly.

Is this place ever really bad? No. Even when the lines are long (and they were this day) you get your coffee pretty darn tootin' fast! Which is nice when you're in a hurry. And it tasted great! Thanks!!

I've been to this Caribou Coffee several times and have always been happy with it. Staff is friendly, fast, and efficient.

My friend Paul met his wife here so it's a good place to meet and greet. The staff seems pretty upbeat and the service is pretty fast for a specialty coffee shop. Seems a little shopworn and fuzzy around the edges from heavy use, but I suppose that seedy patina is something hipsters try for.

It's a typical Caribou Coffee with typical menu items and a long line for the toilet but it's a sight for sore eyes when you're melting in the outside heat.

The ONLY business in Canal Park open before 9am. Fast service, excellent quality. We went here twice before walking the piers.

For those who do not know Caribou it is like a Starbucks. Nice coffee selection and traditional sweet roles, and breakfast sandwiches. People lounge and read and email from there.

Everyone knows and loves Caribou, but the canal park location is an excellent place to take in the views and enjoy downtown. A casual place that great for getting office work done.
