The Backyard Coffee Company, 965 Brewster Avenue, brings a spark of the hometown cafe to Redwood City. Centrally located in downtown Redwood City, a stone’s throw from the boulevard of shops and restaurants, rests the Backyard Coffee Company.
This locally owned and operated business boasts both an open plan coffee shop and a separate but shared-site gym. The owner of this cozy cafe renamed it from Cafe Sportivo to Backyard Coffee Company in honor of her great-grandmother who ran a restaurant with the same name.
The Backyard Coffee Company blends the ideas of a traditional coffee shop with a place that offers local events for talented artists of all kinds to have community participation in a variety of events. The walls are lined with local art and an eclectic collection of comfortable chairs, tables and couches to lounge and do work or hang out and watch a movie that is featured once a month by a local film maker- often who is on site at the time of the showing.
There is also a piano for the local musicians who are showcased here and other events made available to the community such as Quiz Night.The coffee is brewed to perfection, and there is a selection of organic coffees and teas, as well as wine and beer, if the mood should arise (or if your Quiz Night scores need some help).
