Well, February has come and gone and I’ve barely scratched the surface of the myriad breakfast eateries, coffee shops and bakeries I set out to discover. Lucky for me, this mission will continue for a long time.
Much of my weekend was spent gallivanting around Hartford, just the way I like it. Haitian Happy hour at La Paloma Sabanera, coffee at Jojo’s, some quick bites at Hook & Ladder, and a fantastic breakfast at Mo’s Midtown.
I’ll touch upon Jojo’s Coffee & Tea for a paragraph or two. What a great find. I ventured out with my roommate Beth on Saturday in hopes of finding a good cup of coffee and a place to get some reading done. Jojo’s exceeded my expectations. Not only did I drink some amazing coffee (they roast their own), but Beth had a cup of tea worth highlighting– a soothing honey lemon concoction with fresh ginger grated in. SO tasty. On the menu, Jojo’s provides a great tea selection (even bubble tea!), grilled paninis, espresso drinks, smoothies, baked goods and so on.
I’ll leave you with my two favorite excerpts from the website:
“We roast our own coffee at Jojo’s Coffee and Tea because we want to give our customers the freshest coffee possible… So how fresh are our beans? They are so fresh, we have to slap them.”
“Just like dark roast, there is no flavored coffee at Jojo’s. This is because we have no desire to play with flavor compounds and in our not so humble opinion a coffee shop should smell like, well, coffee, and not some farcical Southern Amaretto Banana Cinnamon Hazelnut Snickerdoodle amalgamation.”
Been here before? Chime in with your two cents :)
