The drive through is really handy at this location, which is just south of I-494 on the west side of Penn Ave. at American Blvd. West.

This has been a regular visit place till the time I was in Bloomington. One of the greatest coffee I always wish to have. The ambience is soothing and the staff were good too. The wait time is comparatively lesser. Good place to go :)

This may be a Minnesota "chain", but they are far superior to Starbucks for reasons I don't need to explain. This particular site has a lot of seating of various kinds and is usually busy on weekends. Their staff are friendly and efficient. The parking leaves much to be desired, because it's in a small strip mall with other restaurants... More

While shopping for three days we needed a pick me up and we went here twice a day. The cappuccino drinks were very good and the coffee was as well.

I need to warm up. I stopped by Caribou for a large hot milk chocolate. It was wonderful and the staff was wonderful. It's a great place to relax and warm up.

every day as a treat for my granddaughter we got a kid sized strawberry banana smoothie and plain croissant. I got a Latte extra shot. One morning we had to settle for starbucks and not only was it more expensive, but not as good!!

We happened upon this place when my husband wanted some coffee. We ordered an iced coffee and a banana/strawberry smoothie. The iced coffee was ok, and the smoothie tasted mostly strawberry, and a bit too sweet. I asked if they put any sugar in it and they said no, but something definitely made it very sweet. We won't be going... More

Each time we go to we make sure to purchase drinks since we spend a considerable amount of time studying there. In this particular instance we need to get started and finished with... More
