Around Jax: New restaurants, ways to celebrate Mother’s Day Weekend

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Action News Jax’s Chandler Morgan shows you about new restaurants and a way you can celebrate mom this weekend.


There are several new restaurants “Around Jax” that have you covered for breakfast and lunch.

Morgan’s first stop was Scooter’s Coffee in Oceanway, where it’s putting the final touches on its newest location. The chain is known for its fast drive-thru, specialty coffee and pastries.

To celebrate, the drive-thru location will be hosting a grand opening on Friday, May 17, and on that day, you can get a bogo when you pay through the Scooters Coffee app. You can check out this recently-opening location on New Berlin Road.
