M is for mouthwatering and M is for Mocha Jo's. I reckon these two go hand in hand. Any regular to the area of Glen Waverley knows you can rely on Mocha Jo's for coffee and dessert. Even better, is that Mocha Jo's is open late every day of the week. A night owl myself, this is perfect.
Skinny Flat White
As always, I ordered a skinny flat white. Strong and bold, this drink paired nicely with my sticky date pudding. However, it was sad to see no coffee art was existent.
1st Date, Sticky Date
Wowee ! Imagine this. Mocha Jo's homemade classic sticky date pudding, topped with two generous orbs of vanilla bean ice cream, and smothered in butterscotch sauce. Enticing, isn't it ? Together, the chill of the fragrant vanilla ice cream and the warmth of the butterscotch sauce tickled my tastebuds. Rich, sweet and warming, this dish made the perfect date. This was the ultimate comfort food and I fell head over heels for it. There was even a cute little note at the bottom of the menu indicating that this was very very yummy. Indeed it was.
Mango & Coconut Mousse
My friend ordered the mango and coconut mousse off the specials board and was presented with this little number. Heavenly layers of light and airy mango and coconut mousse, finished off with toasted coconut and zest of lime. This was polished off in no time.
When night comes, Mocha Jo's is the perfect place to chill out over coffee and dessert. Service was warm, efficient and most importantly, they put up with our roars of laughter. Not only was coffee and dessert delicious, my friends had further channeled their inner sweet tooth on the eye-candy. By the time we had reached the door to leave, they had already vowed to re-visit for dinner, to feast both their eyes and stomachs.
