Caribou coffee on LaSalle is a real gem. The staff is always perky and very friendly. It is a clean, inviting, shop with many options to choose from. If you are a die hard coffee drinker they have a fabulous dark roast. The light roast is also a good choice. There are a ton of teas and frozen drinks to choose from too.
The baked goods are amazing. A favorite is the low-fat blueberry muffin. It is moist and full of blueberries. There are usually about 15 choices for baked goods and the variety changes frequently.
I highly recommend giving caribou a try. You will be greeted with a friendly smile and have a yummy pick-me-up snack any time of day!
