For lovers of breakfast food at any time of the day, there is good news coming, thanks to the announcement of a new restaurant opening up shop in the coming months. The new restaurant, which hails from Tennessee, is making its first trek into the American Southeast with the metro Phoenix location, and should it prove popular, additional locations might follow.
However, this breakfast and coffee cafe is different from other restaurants serving similar food. That is because there’s a true purpose behind the restaurant: to help parentless children find homes.
Rob and Emily Webb, the owners and founders of Just Love Coffee Cafe, In 2009, they made the decision to adopt two children in Ethiopia. During the flight to Africa, the parents wanted to find a way to help more children locate homes, which became the brainchild of their restaurant idea. They decided to start a hand-roasting coffee and breakfast shop that would donate a large portion of funds to needy families, orphanages, and other organizations that assisted children. In the first year of business, the Nashville shop donated almost $100,000.
Every new location is dedicated to giving back to the community, and while the individual locations donate profits to charities, Just Love Coffee Roasters has set up programs to make it easy for anyone and everyone to raise funds with the help of some breakfast and coffee. The restaurant allows individuals all the way up to organizations to sell products, like bags of coffee, and all the earned proceeds are then mailed out to the organization of the group’s choice. In essence, it takes the hurdles and headaches out of fund-raising. There is a page right on the Just Love Coffee Roasters website that goes into further detail about how individuals and organizations can partner with the cafe to give back.
The new metro Phoenix location will be situated in Mesa. In addition to having freshly roasted coffee (which can be purchased in bags as well), there will be plenty of breakfast food goodies to enjoy as well. This includes their classic “Womelette”, which is eggs, sausage, cheddar cheese, onions, peppers, tomatoes, tater tots, and a dash of black pepper, seared in a waffle iron. Guests will also find breakfast burritos, sausage, egg, and cheese biscuits, avocado toast, and much more. Artisan waffles will also be served with flavors including chocolate chip cookie waffles, Fruity Pebbles and Cream waffles, and a Flyin’ Pig Waffle.
