Del’s in the Grand Cities Mall had been the place to meet and eat or gather to just sip coffee.
Now it is different.
The place is called Mo’s. It’s been transformed into a more upscale restaurant with a new décor and a new menu. People are discovering it in spite of its lowkey opening. They are finding their way there for coffee – and much, much more.
Mo’s serves a breakfast that goes far beyond traditional offerings. It goes beyond three buttermilk pancakes to French toast combinations. There are biscuits and gravy. There are steak and eggs.
Offerings at Mo's Café include a build-your-own burger or chicken sandwich. The list of ingredients includes lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles and onion. And there’s relish, bacon, ham and cheese choices.
In these days of restaurant closures, the owners of the new restaurant are different. They say they chose the name Mo's because that is what both of them used to call their mothers. And with their cooking, both Ryan Storey and Colin Beaumier say that is how they want their cooking to be.
Mo's Café dares to be different. The restaurant has a clean, orderly ambiance. There’s enough space between tables and counter seats for customers to carry on conversations. There is a grey and white décor. There are wooden floors. New tables and chairs. An upscale ambiance.
With its clean, uncluttered ambiance, the owners are moving tentatively. Some menu items are new. Others are all-time favorites.
Owners: Ryan Storey and Colin Beaumier
Hours: 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Report card: A new and different homestyle café has grown up in spite of coronavirus complications. The restaurant serves basic foods with extra homestyle touches. It succeeds the former Del’s Café which formerly occupied the location in the mall.
