Caribou Coffee in Saudi Arabia

Filed under: Coffee Shops in Riyadh — Tags: , — Khaled A. @ 11:04 am

I only noticed this coffee shop a few weeks ago but apparently Caribou was open for over 2 months. This is Caribou’s first branch in Saudi Arabia. Caribou is the second largest coffee shop chain the US after Starbucks.

I’m not much of a food critic but I enjoyed their brewed coffee. Their lattes and smoothies are also good. One of the better coffee shops in Riyadh.

Caribou’s shortcomings in my opinion are: the lack of wireless Internet (I hope that they will add a wi-fi access point soon) and no bakery, what they offer now are below average. I also noticed that the Saudi Arabia branch is missing from Caribou’s website (they are open in Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan and UAE).

Caribou Coffee is located at the intersection of Olaya Street and Imam Saud bin Abdulaziz Street in Riyadh (Google maps link). Family section is available.

Here is the Gowalla location for Caribou Coffee Riyadh.
