Mocha Monkey Named Best Coffeehouse in Minnesota by Its Huge Following
As mentioned in a previous blog about new businesses in Waconia, Mocha Monkey was recently named “The Best Coffeehouse in Minnesota”! Appearing on last week’s Best of Minnesota series, on WCCO-TV, viewers voted for their favorite spot to grab a cup of joe. It was no surprise to locals that their most frequented caffeinated destination was everyone else’s!
Mocha Monkey definitely came out well ahead of their competitor LuLu Beans, located in Willmar, by a couple hundred votes. It is wonderful that a small business coffee shop can get so much recognition on such a large scale! Owner Jon Schmidt was very appreciative to have made the top 20 list, but to be voted number one was outstanding. Compared to all of the popular Uptown Minneapolis hot spots it’s quite the honor!
Recently expanding their hours, Mocha Monkey is now open until 4 p.m. on Sundays at both locations in Waconia, as well as 8 p.m. at the new location, Monday through Saturdays! Mocha Monkey is now expecting quite the busy crowd after receiving the recognition, and are prepared to take on new customers. Congratulations to all our local business successes.
