Half of Rochester, Minnesota is going to roll its eyes 🙄at the latest coffee news BUT the rest of us are jumping up and down because we finally have another coffee shop coming to NE Rochester! Yes, Caribou Coffee has plans to open up another adorable caffeine-filled shop near Century High School.
Caribou Coffee Has Plans To Open Up Another Shop in Rochester, Minnesota.
I happened to be scrolling Facebook the other day when I saw a story that the Post Bulletin published about a new coffee shop in the works for NE Rochester. I am a bit of a coffee fanatic and got super excited because the NE side of Rochester is seriously lacking restaurants and coffee shops compared to other spots in town. If you don't believe me, go drive on Circle Drive starting at RCTC and go North until you hit IBM and tell me how many coffee shops you drove by. I'll save you the counting...it is 0.
Caribou's Cabin is Finally Open in SE Rochester!
According to the Rochestermn.gov website, the following was filed by Coffee Holdings, LLC:

Where the proposed Caribou Cabin Coffee will be located in Rochester, Minnesota.
Below are a few maps to give you an idea where the new proposed shop would be located.
The first photo doesn't show the new Kwik Trip but that takes up a large portion of the green space on the right side between Viola Rd. NE and County Road 22. The new coffee shop would be on the corner of Viola Road NE and Wheelock Dr. NE.
Below is some of the documentation that was filed with the City of Rochester and gives you a glimpse at where the coffee shop and drive-through would be located on the property.
