I have visited every single coffee shop in Rochester, Minnesota.  No, not all on the same day, silly, but I have spent money at every single one.  I'm a mom and right now I'm doing three radio shows a day so caffeine is basically the definition of my life.  And now, another coffee shop is almost ready to open, which means, I've got one more to visit!

Caribou Coffee Getting Getting Ready to Open Newest Coffee Shop in Rochester, Minnesota

I've been saying this for a long time - Rochester needs MORE food and coffee shop options on the NE side.  Anyone that has kids that go to Century High Schools knows that this area is lacking.  You have Kwik Trip and...well...that's it unless you go down the road towards Broadway.  Kwik Trip, I love you too as well as my kids.  I'm pretty sure they spend all of my money at your store by the school.

One of the big coffee companies in Minnesota must have heard my plea because about a year ago, we heard that Caribou Coffee was planning to open one of its adorable cabin coffee shops near Century High School.  Well, now it is almost time for this magnificent caffeine dispenser to open!

According to Caribou Coffee's website, the new Caribou Coffee will be a drive thru only and will be located at 2190 Wheelock Drive NE in Rochester.

When Is the Newest Caribou Coffee Opening in Rochester, Minnesota?

I had a co-worker reach out to the team at Caribou Coffee but as of right now, I only know that it is "Coming Soon".  I did hear a rumor though that it will be in December.  If I hear back from the company or find out the actual opening date, I'll share the news over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.

Did You Know Rochester Already Has One Of These Adorable Coffee Shops Open?

Rochester is a pretty big town and we tend to get stuck in our quadrants.  I live in NE Rochester and when we decide to venture to Fleet Farm, Kohl's, Lowe's or anything on the SE side, it is like a whole production.  We need snacks, things to do in the car...ok, I'm exaggerating just a little bit.  But it is true that we get stuck in our quadrants.

If you don't venture into SE Rochester often, you may not know that Rochester already has an adorable cabin-like coffee shop.  It's in the same parking lot as Planet Fitness and Cub Foods and below are a few photos of its super cute location.

Newest and Cutest Coffee Shop in Rochester had quite the transformation!

I've been waiting pretty much forever for the new Caribou Cabin to open up in Rochester, Minnesota. We first heard that Caribou was going to be building this adorable coffee shop by Cub Foods way back in May of 2020. So, yeah, it's been a test of our patience. I've been slowly watching the progress take shape and was super excited to pull up and grab a cup of coffee on their opening day. Yes, as of November 30th, 2021, the Caribou Cabin is finally open!

Here are a few photos of the progress and what the new place looks like.
