The baristas will deliver the espresso fix you're craving, to go or to stay. Friendly staff, comfortable seating to visit with friends or read while you sip. A cookie called my name from the baked goods section: not a huge selection of items, but it all looked fresh and appealing.

If you need a coffee with a friendly jacket, this place is great! I love the inspirations on the take out cups! The coffee is delicious and the specialty lattes are one of a kind. Try the Kenora mist and London fog!

We had a chai and a Kenora Mist. Both were quite tasty. The baristas were friendly and very helpful when we asked about sites to see.

Stopped in for afternoon coffee on a dreary November day. Coffee was good and served in real mugs. Some options for people with allergies - gluten free cheesecake and almond milk for coffee. Unfortunately no offer of gluten free sandwich option to go with it. Atmosphere was enjoyable - though the sign saying no wifi due to lack of space... More

Stopped in for a cool beverage. The LOTW lemonade was delicious. Not sure if it's worth $6+. Looking forward to trying some of the other menu items next time! FYI: No wifi here.

Absolutely love going to Hojoe! Love the new location, atmosphere is awesome. Have eaten there several times for lunch and the food and treats are always great. They make an amazing grilled cheese!

As a local resident, I stop by nearly every morning for my regular Kenora Mist, and a treat. Mel and her staff are always there with a smile on and the quotes lately have been a true mood-lifter every time. I enjoy going to HoJoes for a good tea and chat with friends and family. They have changed locations, a... More
