Caribou Coffee is a chain - similar to starbucks - but very different. The decor is rustic - like the inside of a log cabin. The coffee ranges from rich and robust to light and flavorful. They have a full range of expresso style drinks and also offer a very nice and tasty assortment of pasteries. You can read the post, sit outside or in, and enjoy a great cup of joe in one of the 60 or so seats. Also the staff is courtious and the bathrooms are CLEAN!
very nice place to sit and 'chill' for a while
and in the winter - you can relax by the fireplace.
