JoJo’s Coffee and Goodness
Owner and operator Angela “JoJo’’ Stevenson invites you to enter a cafe and relaxed coffee shop atmosphere for a daily dose of “goodness” this holiday season. Stop in for cinnamon rolls; scones: cranberry orange, chocolate caramel and cheddar thyme; strawberry coffee cake; cranberry orange muffins; red velvet cookies; brownies with espresso ganache or caramelitas. Try a breakfast special with a piece of quiche or kolache-hashbrown casserole. Breakfast burritos are rolled and ready daily. Choose from andouille, bacon, chorizo or veggie. Or tantalize your taste buds with a made-to-order breakfast sandwich on croissants or bagel with two eggs and cheese and then choose if you want to add Jojo’s homemade smoked jalapeño beef bologna, bacon, house smoked barbecue or ham. Cinnamon rolls and kaloches still hold the top spot for sell outs. Stop in for featured muffins, coffee cake or pound cake, which go great with maple cinnamon latte or caramel macchiato. Some of Jojo’s most popular coffees are COLD. Nitro, Cold Brew, fruit smoothies and frozen affogatos are the way to go. And, oh, the freshly roasted coffee. Order ahead and pick up some for the office, or Christmas or New Year’s breakfast to accompany your Holiday offerings! Tickets are available for Elve’s Workshop with Reiko on Dec. 17th! Book online at bigorangehousedesigns.com.
