When I was researching places to eat in Osoyoos, Jojo’s Cafe came up on top on TripAdvisor. Jojo’s Cafe has been around since 2010 and is the area’s premier coffee bar. They offer breakfast and lunch service and uses local ingredients whenever possible. It’s the sort of place whether locals and tourists can go visit for some homemade, made-with-love kind of food. And so when I was visiting Osoyoos a few months ago, I made a breakfast stop at Jojo’s Cafe.
Jojo’s Cafe Menu
On the menu at Jojo’s are soups, sandwiches and baked goods. Based on my research, eggs benny seemed to be very popular with customers. They offer a regular eggs benny and a smoked salmon eggs benny. Jojo’s Cafe support other local businesses and their coffee is supplied by local coffee roasters. Their Dark Roast is by Rock Creek Trading Post and all other roasts are by Max Voets Coffee Roasting in Vernon. The menu is available online.
Jojo’s Cafe’s support for local businesses goes beyond food suppliers. In fact, they feature local art and artists as well as have a local musician and artist perform a free show once a month.
Inviting, Energetic Atmosphere
When I visited the cafe, it was certainly busy with customers for breakfast. The atmosphere was energetic and had a good community sort-of-feel. I definitely felt like a local dining at the neighbourhood cafe. Parking is available in front and they food is good for dine-in or take-out. The interior had quite a few dining tables and counters, and they even have a few benches and tables outside.
What I Tried
For breakfast, I had a salmon eggs benny ($9.59), a latte ($3.79) and a blueberry coffee cake. The salmon eggs benny was very tasty and had 2 poached eggs, smoked salmon and hollandaise on top of foccacia. The hollandaise sauce was nicely thick, rich, creamy and lemony. It also came with sides of potatoes and apple slices.
The blueberry coffee cake with crumble topping was also very memorable. Moist, fluffy, light and not too sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed the cake with my latte.
Overall Impression of Jojo’s Cafe
My breakfast experience at Jojo’s Cafe was enjoyable and the food was solid. I enjoyed the friendly and inviting atmosphere. Next time I visit Osoyoos, I’d love to have breakfast or lunch at Jojo’s again. Rating: 4/5
