Jojo’s Coffee and Goodness
JoJo’s is owned and operated by Angela “JoJo” Stevenson who wanted to incorporate a cafe and relaxed coffee shop atmosphere to accompany her attached teaching studio. Her dream team bakes fresh “goodness” daily—breakfast and lunch—Tuesday-Saturday. Feel free to come work (free WiFi) or meet up with friends or family.

Bakery Report for December includes fresh goodness specialties such as Scones: Ham and Cheddar, Cinnamon Cream and Mixed Berry; Pumpkin Coffee Cake; Banana Bread; Pound Cake; Hummingbird Muffins; Espresso Brownies and Caramelitas; and breakfast specials such as quiche (spicy sausage, ham, roasted red pepper or keto) with hash brown casserole and best coffee ever! Order ahead and pick up some for Christmas or New Year’s breakfast or to accompany your Holiday offerings!

Jojo says there are very few tickets available for the Dec. 19th where your kids can come to “Santa’s workshop.” They will make two ornaments, paint a cookie and make a card for someone special as well as get some individual time with Santa.
Hours 7:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday
