Sip a Hot Brew

Part of national chain, Caribou Coffee in Kings Park serves as community hangout.

In the Kings Park Shopping Center at the Intersection of Braddock Road and Rolling Road, lies Caribou Coffee. The popular coffee house chain is known for such menu items as the “Turtle Mocha,” “Northern Lite Coolers” and a variety of signature pastries. With 16 locations in Virginia, the Caribou Coffee in the Kings Park Shopping Center doubles as a community hang out and a coffee lounge.

Faux fireplaces, cozy couches, and a large bulletin board filled with neighborhood announcements including dates for clean ups, and soccer games, and other community news tidbits give the coffee house a friendly ambiance. The scent of roasting coffee and vanilla make it easy to linger long after drinks and food have been ordered.

“Whenever I come here, everyone is so friendly,” said customer Hannah Kern of Springfield, who has been coming to the Caribou Coffee for five years. “The drinks are delicious and its great knowing that even though this is a commercial chain, they still really care about the community.”

Whether one is looking for a warm respite on a chilly winter day in January, or an escape from the sweltering heat in August, the Caribou Coffee in Kings Park is the place to go.
