Momo Lolo was started in 2010 by Colin Gerety, who wanted to create a social gathering place where he could have interesting conversations. It was also something of a testing ground for his theories about the world, a way that he could give life to his beliefs about how things should be run. He spent the better part of nine years here. During much of that time he sat at the counter or at a table nearby, working on software projects (some paid, some for fun) and bestowing his wisdom upon baristas and customers alike.
This shop wouldn’t exist in any form at all without Colin and his vision. However, if you ask him about his vision for Momo Lolo, he responds with a long and seemingly random story, ending with some statement indicating that he is completely opposed to titles, business plans, and vision statements.
In 2018, Colin decided to retire. His daughter September and her sons Dante and Sebastian are creating the next generation of Momo Lolo. While building on the strong values and customer base established by Colin, they have updated and refreshed the shop, committed to efficiently serving really good coffee, in a clean, welcoming environment, and have brought a sense of intention and refinement to Momo Lolo.
