The Twin Cities welcomed the first of Caribou Coffee's new small format coffee shops, dubbed Caribou Cabins.

The Minneapolis coffee chain opened the first Caribou Cabin in Jordan last month, with its second opening in Burnsville on Thursday.

The cabins are designed for drinkers on the go, comprising less than 600 square feet of space, with no interior seating, and drive-thru windows.

They have been designed to capture Caribou's "iconic Northwoods feel."

The Burnsville location, at 2351 County Rd 42, will be followed by locations in St. Peter, Big Lake and Willmar.

There won't be any coming to Minneapolis however, as the city has recently banned the construction of new drive-thrus.

An official grand opening of the Burnsville location will be held on Jan. 3.

Caribou is the second-largest company-operated coffee house in the U.S., with more than 300 stores throughout the country. Of those stores, a significant portion are in Minnesota, which is home to 288 Caribou locations, according to Caribou’s website.
