This Dad Built a Backyard Coffee Shop That’ll Make You Want To Build Your Own

Backyard pubs have been popping up left and right, but not everyone is into drinking alcohol. Some people prefer their coffee…

One man’s love for java compelled him to build a coffee shop right in his own backyard. His proud daughter, Julianna, shared his amazing project on social media. The charming coffeehouse has been garnering rave reviews and it’s no wonder why. You can practically smell the coffee brewing through cyberspace. Makes you want to order up a latte and relax.

Take a look!


It’s hard to believe when you see it like this, but this project was completed in just three months—fueled by caffeine no doubt!

It probably helps that the guy who’s now the head barista of this coffee house is also a contractor. Something tells us Ed the Builder, as he refers to himself on Instagram, is about to be in high demand!


That window is going to allow for plenty of natural light and possibly even walk-up customers.


Welcome to La Vida Cafe. Love the built-in mini-fridge and the chalkboard announcing the daily specials.


Whether you want to watch the morning news, or grab a magazine off the rack and read, this coffee shop has it all.

Indoor and outdoor seating makes this an all-weather hang-out.

Imagine stopping in for a little after-dinner espresso or cappuccino at dusk under these lights? We’ll drink to that!

Plenty of dads are known to putter around the backyard tackling interesting projects, but few take it to this extreme.

Even if you’ve downloaded your favorite java joint’s app and choose curbside pickup, you still can’t beat the convenience of a coffee shop waiting just outside your door.

Want to see more on how this cool and flavor-packed project came to life? Check out Juliana’s video and get inspired.
