Caribou Coffee fans in Chicago can rejoice. The coffee chain is returning to the Windy City but this time inside Einstein Bros. Bagels’ restaurants.

“Good coffee is important to our guests. The introduction of the Caribou Coffee brand into Einstein Bros. Bagels is just another way for us to bring quality menu items to them,” Leigh Anne Snider, president of Einstein Bros. Bagels, said in a news release.

“Now you don’t have to choose between a great coffee experience and a great breakfast sandwich, you can have both.”

Einstein Bros. Bagels isthe largest bagel retail company with more than 700 stores, officials said.

Caribou Coffee and Einstein Bros. are both owned by JAB Holding Co. Caribou Coffee closed its coffee shops in the Chicago area in 2013.
