Stopped in for dinner and a few beers. They had a great selection of craft beers, cheerfully served by attentive bartenders. The menu is sandwich-centric, in addition to appetizers. There is also a nightly special. The appetizer I had was good.

I have been going to Mokka for three years, Service and Food always perfect. Pace yourself, relax and enjoy! Breakfast, Rubens and specials are delicious. Recommend for any occasion and business lunch.

I'm normally not big on French toast, but their cornflake crusted French toast with creme brûlée sauce is wonderful! Nice atmosphere, we will definitely be back!

Happily surprised to discover a great breakfast place in what I thought was a bar! Our server Gail was both patient and helpful with newbies! I ordered the cornflake crusted French toast with Creme Brûlée sauce and sliced fresh bananas...oh mercy, heavenly!
