Mojo Risin’ Coffee Co. (Siesta Key, Florida)

Mojo Risin Cafe in Siesta Key, Florida

This laid-back, beachy themed coffee shop is located in the cute Siesta Key Village, a charming, old-fashioned dining and shopping area located nearby the amazing beaches of Siesta Key, known worldwide for their beautiful powdery white sand.

In keeping up with the fun-in-the-sun atmosphere, Mojo offers a casual setting, perfect for a relaxing, non-rushed coffee break. The setting here is so low-key, that you will be tempted to order another drink just so you can linger a bit longer before hitting the white sand beaches of Siesta Key. What a perfect start to a great day in Siesta!

The vibe is beachy and tropical, perfect for a stop before or after your day of fun-in-the-sun. Their motto is “It’s a good day to have a good day.” – Sounds good to me! The pastries are delicious and fortunately they offer a number of vegan selections.
