I know I’m pretty late to the party, but aren’t you excited that Caribou Coffee has arrived and we have yet another coffee shop in town? No offense to Starbucks, Einstein’s or Moncafe (oh my!). It’s just that I love options and when I’m running late I want parking options. And with four coffee houses in Lake Forest, it’s a sure thing one of the four has a space open (it’s the little things in life I tell you!).
Similar to Starbucks, Caribou has plenty of seating, a cozy fireplace, and both seem to get crowded during the morning and after school hours. The staff is always cheerful and they have a punch card system. After 10 drinks you get a free one! With all of these java options in Lake Forest I’m not sure when I’ll get to 10 drinks but I consider it a challenge I’m willing to face, if there’s parking out front of course.
