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.
