This is my new favorite spot in Durham. The drip (the measure by which I judge all coffee shops) was delicious—nutty, smooth, not too acidic. I feel this is underrated, but they also have one of the most impressive collections of tea that I’ve seen around. The atmosphere, and free WiFi, are perfect for working for several hours. I would definitely come back with a friend just for the food, which sounds like a lighter version of the Ethiopian food served by Goorsha that I already know I love.

We walked to Gojo this morning for coffee and a bite, what a great place!! My latte was VERY good and I can’t wait to come to Gojo with a book and linger with friends when the world opens again- the cafe and their outdoor patio at the back are going to be amazing when the weather warms up. I had the avocado and cheese panini for breakfast and it was exceptional. I’m looking forward to the next time we go back (which will be soon!)

I went to the GoJo on a lunch date and it was perfect! The food was amazing, very flavorful and healthy. I also had a Vanilla Latte which gave me the energy boost I needed for the rest of the day. The space is very beautiful and relaxing. The owner was extremely friendly and mentioned future plans for the space. Very impressed and super excited to discover this hidden gem.

My wife and I visited Gojo and had an amazing time! The paninis and traditional Ethiopian coffee were absolutely delicious, and both the inside and outside provide a great ambience. Additionally, the owner was extremely warm and took the time to chat with us about the creativity that goes into the dishes, as well as about his future plans for Gojo. We'll certainly be coming back!

I was really impressed with this place when I went with my brother recently. It's a really warm and cozy space with delicious panninis! I got the chicken panini with Ethiopian hot sauce and pesto. It was fantastic. The owner is extremely friendly and accommodating. Great experience.

Can't believe I'm just now finding out about Gojo. This place is an absolute gem of a cafe in the downtown Durham area. I didn't get the coffee but got a smoothie which was delicious. Customer service was also excellent and they have a huge patio for seating, in addition to the beautifully-decorated interior seating space.This certainly won't be my last visit and I'm looking forward to trying some of their other menu items and pastries as well.

I am obsessed with this place, already planning my next visit. The bagel sandwich was incredible and the man working was so nice! The patio is huge so it's great for social distancing and doggie dates!

Loved the paninis and coffee! Awesome spot for a COVID-safe lunch. The outdoor area is great for visiting or working.
