On the last day of my trip to Virginia my family and I were needing something that was more “us” for lunch. If that makes sense. We had had a lot of rich foods, as well as meals that we are not used to eating and we were just craving something light. That’s how we ended up at Borjo Coffeehouse in Norfolk. If a coffee shop isn’t me, I don’t know what is!
This place was delightful and just what the doctor ordered. It’s located right by Old Dominion University so it’s filled with summer semester students. I ordered a Mocha Frapp as I was craving a milk shake like substance but I made sure that they only did half of the normal chocolate. It was very sweet and perfect for my craving. My Mom and I did our coffee shop usual and ordered two different sandwiches so that we could split it, that way we could try more on the menu.
I chose the Palermo Panini which had roma tomato, fresh mozzarella and pesto grilled on ciabatta. It was delicious! I even thought that it was the perfect sandwich until I tried what Mom had ordered… The Powhatan. Which was three cheese (blue, cheddar, provolone) grilled cheese with avocado and roma tomato. We ordered it without the bacon. I don’t know what it was about this sandwich but it blew the other one out of the water. For me I think it was the bread with that pow of blue cheese that you can’t see but hits your taste buds.
I absolutely loved this little coffee shop and will be a frequent stop on my next trip to Norfolk. Have a fantastic weekend y’all! Any coffee shop recommendations for me?
