Coffee has it's own day once a year on October 1. But I am a firm believer that everyday is coffee day. With that in mind, can there ever be too many options. Owatonna has recently added a couple of spots to get a good dose of caffeine.

The Chamber Ambassadors of the Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism (OACCT) recently visited the new Starbucks Coffeehouse located at the Owatonna Hy-Vee Food Store for a ribbon-cutting. The chamber's Tuesday Talk e-newsletter wishes to "congratulate the business on its recent addition. Beth Smith is the Starbucks manager, Justin Lewer is the Hy-Vee Food Store manager."

Not long ago, Caribou Coffee opened up a drive-thru only location in Owatonna to go along with their in-person store out by Cabela's. The drive-thru shack is at 621 W. Bridge Street, practically a next-door neighbor to a Starbucks.

Owatonna also boasts great hometown options. Central Park Coffee is just a few steps from their namesake downtown.
