Local coffee hawkers Mojo Coffee Roasters (www.mojocoffeeroasters.com) expanded to the French Quarter when they opened a coffee bar inside the Saint Hotel (931 Canal St., 504-522-5400; www.thesainthotel.com) Sept. 1.
The company opened its first cafe (1500 Magazine St., 504-525-2244) in the Lower Garden District in 2006 and has been growing since owner Demian Estevez jumped into the roasting business last year with barista-turned-roaster Matt Cronin.
The new location, called Mojo Coffee Bar, has a short menu featuring the company's single-origin, small-batch coffee and espresso drinks. It also sells brewing equipment and coffee accoutrements. The cafe is open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
