Caribou Coffee in Qatar

Qatar got a taste of Minnesota recently. Caribou Coffee opened earlier this year. The atmosphere is consistent with the warm cabin-like Midwest atmosphere and it even affords free wireless Internet. Sitting in the dining room almost makes me feel like I’m in Minnesota… well, save for the Filipino girl taking orders and the Sri Lankan gentleman brewing up “the best cup of coffee in the world”… oh, and the Arabic translations for names and Qatari Riyal prices on the large overhead menu. Close enough! Two locations just opened and the employees are quick to tell people that it’s a Minnesota-based company. The Midwest scores in the Middle East!

This is the translated menu, as it appeared soon after the coffee shop opened in Qatar:
