Best neighborhood coffee shop in New Orleans. Try the Race sandwich on 7-grain with a medium blend for a perfect lunch. The barristas are friendly and remember you after a few visits. Just a short walk up Magazine from the CBD and a block over from beautiful Colliseum Park. Grab a cup to go and enjoy a stroll through the park. That's how to enjoy a great cup of coffee.

First off, Mojo has probably the widest variety of teas available in the city, which is a must for those of us who don't drink coffee. However, they do also have a pretty wide selection of coffees as well, which are rotated fairly frequently. The sandwiches are the perfect alternative to chain sandwich shops, and I personally recommend the Magazine St. I mean, how can you really go wrong with ham, brie, apple slices, and creole mustard? The cakes are positively delicious.
Second, and I may be a bit biased here as I literally live one block away, but the staff is infinitely more personable, helpful, and (for lack of a better term) New Orleans than ""down the street"" at CC's or Rue de la Course. Granted, it may take a minute or two longer to get your order. But then again, it's NEW ORLEANS. Efficiency has never been the city's strong point.
Bottom line: if you're looking for an efficient, sterile, faceless coffee factory devoid of any personality a la Starbucks, then by all means go down the street to CC's, PJ's, Rue, etc. If, on the other hand, you want to really get a feel of the area, find a unique brew that you likely won't find elsewhere, take your time, sit, relax, and just be, this is the place in this neighborhood. It's easy to be a regular at Mojo.

It took over 15 minutes to get two drinks. That's after waiting 10 minutes for the worker to realize someone was there. One strawberry bubble tea and one strawberry limeade. The worker was too busy talking on the phone the whole time. The drinks didn't even turn out to be worth the money. They were watered down and cheaply made. If you want a beverage continue down Magazine St. to CC's or Puccino's. It's worth the extra travel.
