MoJoes, serving up locally roasted coffee

They say that two heads are better than one, and owners of the newly opened MoJoes adjacent to MoVino Wine Bar appear to believe that four heads are even better.

MoVino’s owners Ken and Rebecca Streaker, television interviewer Candace Michel, and Anne Bouley, known for her cooking classes, on television and in magazines, have joined to offer special food and drinks at MoJoes, across the hall from MoVino, 625 Chetco Ave.

Bouley, whose article about wine maker Silvio “Tony” Ciccone, Madonna’s father, is featured in the latest issue of Food magazine, serves as chef in charge of MoJoes.

“I will be writing other articles,” she said.

The menu includes “Breakfast/Brunch and Sandwiches/Subs, organic espresso, Italian sodas, hot chocolate, gourmet pastries, and lunch specials with something different every day.”

“We serve organic, locally roasted coffee, the only ones in town,” Bouley said. She hastened to say that, although it is an espresso shop, a wide array of drinks is available, including smoothies (soon), blended iced coffee, lots of flavors, Chai and raspberry lemonade, as examples.

Bouley will prepare special-occasion cakes of any flavor. “Special requests can often be met, so don’t be afraid to ask,” she said. “All of our food is prepared fresh daily with only the best ingredients, and we offer sugar free treats upon request, plus flourless chocolate cake, totally gluten-free.”

She added, “I plan to offer homemade ice cream with special pastries within a week.”

Other advertised special features include Kid Friendly, Romantic, Live Music, Free Wi-Fi, and Outdoor Dining.

“We will probably have some mini concerts and kids are OK because we serve no alcohol,” Bouley said. “We want to make it a young people’s hangout.”

MoJoes is open Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • U.S. economy slowed in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favorable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a moderate increase in business inventories and a wider trade deficit, but strong domestic demand brightened the outlook. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. The economy grew at a 5 percent rate in the third quarter. Businesses accumulated $88.4 billion worth of inventory in the fourth quarter, far less than the $113.1 billion the government had estimated last month.
  • Dudley, top U.S. economists urge later Fed rate hike
    Raising interest rates too late is safer than acting too early, an influential Federal Reserve official said on Friday, endorsing a high-profile research paper that argues the U.S. economy, given time, can rebound to the strong growth rate to which Americans are accustomed. The paper by four top U.S. economists, presented on Friday to a roomful of powerful central bankers in New York, argues the Fed would be wise to keep rates at rock bottom for longer than planned and then tighten monetary policy more aggressively. New York Fed President William Dudley, who offered a critique of the paper, cited currently low inflation and warned against being too anxious to tighten monetary policy. The U.S. central bank is in the global spotlight as it weighs when to lift rates after more than six years near zero, and how quickly to tighten policy thereafter.
  • Wall Street ends down after data; posts strong gains for month
    The S&P 500 posted its best monthly gain since October 2011 on Friday, but U.S. stocks ended lower for the day as U.S. economic growth slowed more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter. The S&P 500 gained 5.5 percent for the month, while the Nasdaq rose 7.1 percent, its best monthly performance since January 2012. The strong gains have pushed the Nasdaq within striking distance of the 5,000 mark and record highs set in March 2000.
