Mojo Coffee Roasters has partnered with the owners of Ignatius Eatery to create Ignatius Espresso Bar & Cafe at 3121 Magazine Street. The transition will bring cappuccinos, manual, cortados, and more made with local small-batch roasted Mojo Coffee.
This location, formerly Rue De La Course, became Ignatius Eatery in 2012. The restaurant officially converted to the new Ignatius Espresso Bar & Cafe on Monday, June 20. With this transition, Ignatius hopes to once again be a place where artists can work and where locals can gather to talk over locally-roasted coffee.
“Things have really come full circle for us and Debra Dunn of Rue De La Course.” said Mojo’s owner Demian Estevez. “We took over the original Rue location from her post-Katrina, and are now thrilled to be supplying her new coffee endeavor with our coffees as we begin to get our name out there as roasters.”
Rue De La Course owner Debra Dunn stated: “We are excited to bring some of the highest-rated coffee in the city to our neighborhood at a time when New Orleanians are much more savvy coffee drinkers than they were 5 years ago. We’ve always respected Mojo as top players in the coffee community and the fact that they have entered the roasting world couldn’t have come at a better time.”
Ignatius Espresso Bar & Cafe is located in the Lower Garden District at 3121 Magazine Street and is open daily.
