Mojo Bicycle Cafe ditching bike shop component

Quaint Divisadero cafe, beer bar, sand bicycle shop Mojo is taking bikes off the menu by July 9. Tucked into the garage-level space of a yellow Victorian, Mojo’s business has been food in the front, bikes in the back for a decade. But owner Remy Nelson is switching things up, and Mojo is getting rid of the bikes so he can have more time to ride his own, he says. In all likelihood, that means more room for diners to enjoy the sandwiches, salads, and 9 taps of craft beer for which Mojo is also known.

The adjacent butcher shop is open for business as usual, and when the restaurant reopens on August 1, it will be smaller with a reduced menu and a more “casual-service” format, which sounds like the now ubiquitous fast casual/counter service approach. The butcher shop, meanwhile, will be expanded and offer more to-go items including salads and charcuterie.

Expect to see even more of East Brother Beer Company’s classic-looking cans about town: The Richmond, California brewery is expanding after just half a year in business, setting a land speed record for growth. They’ll double brewing capacity at their old Richmond Shipyard facility, where they also host a taproom. And since East Brother has had particular success with its lagers, which take longer to ferment than ales, the brewery will add dedicated lagering space with the expansion.
