COMMUNAL COFFEE started with the desire to provide excellent craft coffee in a well-designed, welcoming environment that fosters community. Owner Jen Byard used her background in the art and non-profit worlds to pull these three concepts together in their first location in North Park. Jen & John have lived in the community since 2008 with their three sons, Lincoln, Ben & Harrison. 

We proudly serve Sightglass Coffee, an independent coffee company based in San Francisco. Sightglass uses small production methods and direct trade practices to attain a perfect roast. 

Our collaboration with Native Poppy adds to the community-minded, inclusive atmosphere. Guests can sit across from and watch the creative process behind craft coffee or floral design.
