It was Thursday again. Lately, my colleagues and I have been planning after-work activities during Thursdays as a way to unwind after 6 days of work. How fast time flies recently, and since our
senior colleague is going on vacation in the Philippines this May, we thought of trying out different places every Thursday after work to enjoy and relax.
And so there was Caribou Coffee, a place suggested to us
and frequently visited by our other colleague Janel. It is located near Abu Hamour Petrol Station and surrounded by a number of Fastfood Chains, which I think is cool in case you wish to have a bite of burgers and fries or maybe cool off your cravings of gelato.
Anyhow, Caribou Coffee looks rather dim at night, or at least that was what it looked like from the outside, the inside however is rather neat and cozy. The ambiance good, and since it was not overly crowded like Starbucks and Coffee Bean, it was a perfect place for us to chill and relax.
Like most coffee houses, Caribou also has a variety of hot and cold coffee drinks. Since the weather that day didn’t call for hot coffee, we instead order from the cold drinks menu. Janel chose Vanilla White Mocha. Ate Erl, who’s more into fruity tastes, chose Berry White Mocha that added a touch of raspberry to it. I, on the other hand, chose Campfire Mocha out of curiosity. LOL!
Of course, sipping coffee in a coffee house is never complete without its complementary sandwiches or cakes!
I was the one who ordered the Red Velvet Cake, it was not as sweet as I was expecting but it still tasted good. Janel ordered the Chocolate Madness since it was the cake she haven’t tried yet
truthfully I didn’t enjoy this cake that much. Ate Erl, on the other hand, ordered the Turtle Cheesecake and I liked it a lot. 🙂
So there you have it, my first dine in experience at Caribou Coffee with friends. 🙂
