America’s best coffee chains not named Starbucks (or Dunkin' Donuts)
These shops may be small in comparison, but they're big on flavor and appeal.
Caribou is by far the largest chain on this list, with nearly 500 locations around the world. It's also the most theme-oriented, with interiors that are more reminiscent of a hunting lodge than a coffeehouse (which can offer a unique contradiction in warm-weather locales). With a full menu of goodies like cookies and sandwiches, plus generous cup sizes, it's not a surprise that Caribou has become so popular.
