The Scandinavian and north African influence can be seen quite clearly in the ubiquitous access to coffee shops in Minneapolis. This is a place where important things are discussed over a cup of coffee. '''Caribou''' [http://www.cariboucoffee.com] is a locally-based national chain that actually outnumbers Starbucks in Minnesota and has a similar feel and quality in the drinks, except the shots are 1.5 oz compared to Starbucks 1.0 ounce, and they usually offer free WiFi. '''Dunn Bros''' [http://www.dunnbros.com] is also locally-based and is third in chains for number of locations, and their coffee is fresh-ground daily in the shop but somewhat stronger than most places in town. Their fantastic brewed coffee is a little more impressive than the espresso, but their shots are at least a mighty 3.0 oz. Dunn Bros also excels at offering free WiFi access and (often) free Internet terminals. '''Tim Horton's'''[http://www.timhortons.com] recently began an entry into the Twin Cities market as well.  If you're looking for something a little less corporate, you can be rest assured that there will be a coffee shop nearby in most parts of town, as Minneapolis' independent spirit has yielded good cups of coffee in so many places that one can hardly throw a rock without it landing in a latte. The number of independent coffee shops per block reaches critical mass near [[Minneapolis/Southwest|Uptown and Lyn-Lake]] and around the [[Minneapolis/Southeast|University of Minnesota]] neighborhoods. The density of coffee shops isn't ''quite'' as great in [[Minneapolis/South|South]] and [[Minneapolis/Northeast|Northeast Minneapolis]], but there will still be enough options to keep you satisfied. Comparatively speaking, [[Minneapolis/North|North Minneapolis]] is somewhat of a coffee desert, but there will still be a couple options to which locals are fiercely loyal. There is also a growing specialty coffee shop movement in Minneapolis if you're willing to pay an extra dollar (or three) for a better cup.
