Muddy Paw Coffee is a classic win-win. Their dog friendly cafe serves organic, fair trade coffee and donates proceeds from every purchase to local animal rescues.
Muddy paw was founded by brothers, Derek and Darren LaBorie and inspired by their three dogs. Muddy Paw Coffee is roasted at the LaBorie's family run business, Port City Coffee Roasters, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, All of the coffees are roasted in small batches and shipped to their new homes within 48 hours. The roasting business is where their social enterprise all began.
In 2014, Darren wanted to do more and when he found his cozy little spot on Sunset Blvd, he opened the cafe that dog lovers all over the city have begun to talk about.
The covered outdoor space is quiet and has herbs and flowers growing in pots that give it an almost backyard garden feel. During our time there we saw some pet owners and several students cramming for mid terms.
What we love about Muddy Paw is that although they stand out as a social enterprise, that doesn't mean their product comes second. A quick tour through their yelp reviews shows dozens of raving customers about the quality of their blends, service and, yes, even their dog treats.
