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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
