Caribou Coffee Company Restaurant Review

: Caribou Coffee started out as a young couple's mountain-top dream, and even though the shops are becoming a ubiquitous part of any strip mall, the warm, knotty pine interiors are decidedly less generic than its closest rival. We like starting the morning out with a couple shots of pure espresso and one of the big, sweet chocolate-y muffins. Or for another real indulgence, we order a Caramel High Rise or a Mint Condition with one of the crumbly scones. During summertime, don’t underestimate the cooling power of Caribou’s blended frozen drinks---we like the passion fruit-green tea smoothie and the addictive vanilla coffee cooler.
