“Better Than Starbucks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

Caribou Coffee is hands down better tasting coffee than Starbucks in my opinion. Although not really a restaurant, they do have ample seating on the upper level and they do serve sandwiches and the cinnamon rolls are great. They also have cookies and muffins. At least the times I have been there they do. My favorite blend that they have is the "Real Inspiration" and also the "Lakeshore" blend. The bags of coffee are a little high, but you get what you pay for that's for sure. If there is a Caribou Coffee and a Starbucks next to each other, you can bet I'll go to Caribou Coffee every time. Try them for your self. They do have a lot of different blends or flavors and several different stores carry them. They are a little cheaper in the stores of course. One other thing, if you go to one of the Caribou Coffee shops and buy a bag of coffee and you don't have a bean grinder at home, make sure you tell them to grind it for you because the bags are fresh beans. Most of the time they will ask you though if you want them ground. They are really nice people.
