Med City coffee fans will have another South Broadway source for caffeinated drinks starting on Tuesday.

A new Caribou Coffee shop is slated to open its doors on Tuesday at 1620 S. Broadway in the Shoppes on Broadway commercial building.

That’s the center in front of the Candlewood Suites hotel that also houses Shopko Optical. The center and the hotel were built by South Dakota-based Lamont Cos.

The coffeehouse will offer both indoor and outdoor seating as well as drive-thru service. It will feature a full food and drink menu.

An official grand opening celebration is scheduled for Friday with deals on large or extra-large drinks. For the rest of the grand opening weekend on Saturday and Sunday, Caribou will donate $1 to Rochester’s nonprofit Ability Building Community for every customer visit.
