The Buzz About JOJO Coffeehouse
JOJO Coffeehouse is the latest coffee bar and restaurant to join the burgeoning community of local coffee houses in the Old Town Scottsdale. But beyond featuring its own proprietary JOJO coffee beans, a blend of a chocolate-forward beans from Brazil mixed with a wild berry full natural bean, JOJO Coffeehouse boasts an extensive selection of coffee drinks, organic tea blend varieties, craft sodas, signature cocktails, sangria and wine — with “flights” that boast everything from coffee to craft brews.
Open daily, JOJO Coffeehouse serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with brunch on the weekends. Morning meal choices include breakfast sandwiches, such as the JOJO Breakfast Sandwich with egg whites, avocado, goat cheese, pesto, cilantro and choice of protein (ham, bacon, chicken, steak or salmon) on toasted focaccia bread. Other breakfast selections include Omelettes, Waffles, a Breakfast Bowl and Breakfast Bruschetta options such as scrambled egg, mozzarella, avocado, green onion, and red vinegar; strawberry, blueberry, mint, balsamic vinegar and whipped ricotta; and Nutella, banana, brown sugar and agave drizzle with an option for gluten-free bread. The lunch and dinner menu is served from noon to close daily and includes a variety of fresh salads and sandwiches, along with a large selection of bruschetta choices.
Local entrepreneur Mike Melton, founder and owner of JOJO Coffeehouse, says the menu reflects a very purposeful direction toward clean, organic and locally sourced ingredients.
Beyond serving good food that’s good for you, Melton wants to create a sense of community at JOJO Coffeehouse. With ample space (and set-up!) for bands and solo artists to perform, Melton hopes to make local entertainment a part of the regular scene at JOJO, starting with live music during weekend brunch. He would also love to make open-mic nights a regular occurrence and invites the local performance community to take the stage! JOJO’s “living room” style environment (including cozy fireplace) — featuring a variety of seating options for large and intimate groups including large tables, couches, and bar seating with views of Scottsdale Road, the coffeehouse is ideal for everything from meetings and networking to social gatherings and first (or 50th!) dates.
JOJO celebrates their official grand opening on Saturday, January 26 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., featuring live musical performances scheduled between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., giveaways, raffle prizes and more. A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit Feed My Starving Children. For more, www.jojocoffeehouse.com.
