The difference between Central Perk and Starbucks/Caribou/Dunn Bros. is personal service. The coffee products are all similar. I had the mocha espresso, vehicle was delicious! The food/sandwich menu is more extensive than the "chains". The owner was the only one working when I was here. He is very friendly and knowledgeable regarding coffee products. They also serve Bridgeman's Ice Cream! Support this local coffee shop!
