I don't understand Caribou Coffee
Caribou Coffee goes a long way toward giving you a comfortable cup of coffee. There's usually a lot of tables, free wi-fi, lots of comfy couches and chairs. And a nice fireplace, which is awesome in the Winter. The coffee itself is good, and there's a great assortment of interesting coffee drinks you could probably put an umbrella in if they were Polynesian themed instead of North Pole themed.
But here's what I don't get: Caribou's baked goods suck. They are all pretty much horrible. Why go to all this trouble to spend on this great interior and then have such a crappy collection of baked goods? It's like they are running a marathon against Starbucks and fell face first 10ft before the finish line.
