Bird-Friendly Coffee at Stow Lake

For well over a century, Stow Lake has been a San Francisco landmark, a gorgeous piece of the Golden Gate Park scenery. In 1893, this man-made lake was created as a way for  people to escape the city, relax and enjoy the scenery–and it continues to be that oasis to this day.

Stow Lake Boathouse

Golden Gate Park is home to a huge variety of songbirds, and has long been an important stopping place for migratory birds on their way up and down the West Coast. This little shelter in the sprawling metropolis of the Bay Area is vital to their journey, and Stow Lake offers the cover they need to rest their wings as they travel. This also makes it a great spot for Bay Area birders to spot more rare species passing through.

Stow Lake Boathouse

The park is also home to the Stow Lake Boathouse, managed by the excellent folks at Ortega Family Enterprises, who operate cafes and concession stands on a number of properties, including the majestic Muir Woods. It only made sense that the Stow Lake Boathouse chose vendors that reflect the values of their unique landscape and substantial bird populations, so as of last month, they are now serving Thanksgiving’s Songbird Coffee lineup! They chose the coffees that would benefit birders and birds everywhere, through the American Birding Association.

Stow Lake, and Golden Gate Park as a whole, offer a chance to put aside stress and worries, take a boat out on the water, and just relax. Thanksgiving Coffee is wholeheartedly a believer in connecting with nature, and Stow Lake lines up with our principles in every way!

On your next visit to San Francisco, grab a cup of coffee at the Stow Lake Boathouse Cafe, and meander around the lake at your leisure. Slow down, enjoy the scenery, and tell them thank you from us for serving Thanksgiving Coffee Company.

Goodlife Cafe’s New Coffee Bags

10483 Lansing Street in Mendocino has been serving Thanksgiving Coffee a long time, through the different phases of ownership and names that have cycled through. As a matter of fact, Thanksgiving Coffee once operated a coffee shop and bakery in that very location. These days, you’ll find the Goodlife Cafe & Bakery there–a cafe that is consistently #1 on Tripadvisor’s restaurants of Mendocino.

Goodlife Cafe Coffee in Mendocino

This cafe is an excellent place to eat… but it’s even better when you order a coffee drink. Every Goodlife barista has been personally trained by Thanksgiving Coffee’s Roastmaster, Jacob Long – and you can taste the difference, whether it’s a shot of espresso or a vanilla latte.

Goodlife Cafe’s New 12oz Bags

Recently, Goodlife Cafe and Bakery made the switch to carrying their own personalized coffee bags, with beans roasted by Thanksgiving Coffee Company. These new bags, featuring the Goodlife mug logo, are available for purchase smack-dab in the middle of the cafe, and they look spectacular.

Station House Cafe in Point Reyes

Earlier this year, a Point Reyes staple celebrated their 44th anniversary, and we got the chance to have a quick meal there on a visit to Marin County. This great little spot is located in downtown Point Reyes, and is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a great meal on the Marin coastline. This is the Station House Cafe.

The Station House Cafe has been serving Thanksgiving Coffee for over 21 years now, and we are honored to be a part of this excellent establishment. Station House Cafe serves up coffee by the cup as well as espresso, and you can even order a Thanksgiving Coffee affogato (that’s a scoop of ice cream with an espresso shot)!

Thanksgiving Coffee in Point Reyes Station

For a town with a population under a thousand, this place is serving up something special. With entrees ranging from Wagyu to Risotto, it’s hard to make a decision on just what to have for dinner. Not to mention the fact that these folks also serve breakfast and lunch, six days a week! Just make sure you’re not planning your visit on a Wednesday, the one day they close up shop.

On our most recent visit to Station House Cafe, the temperature was almost seventy degrees, so an iced latte was a necessity. We also ordered their excellent Point Reyes Mac and Cheese, which made for the perfect lunchtime stop before heading out to the National Park just next door.

Adventist Health in Clear Lake

March 12 marked the official opening of the new coffee service at Adventist Health in Clear Lake, featuring Thanksgiving Coffee Company! We’ve been working with the team at the Mountain View Cafe (inside the hospital) to create an excellent espresso bar for employees, visitors and patients at Adventist Health in Lake County.

Coffee at Adventist Health Clear Lake!

At the new espresso bar, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from your regular cafe drinks, like lattes, cappuccinos, americanos and more. If you’re looking for just a regular cup of coffee, the Mountain View Cafe has chosen some excellent coffees: Gorilla Fund, Songbird Colombian and Songbird Decaf. Each of these Cause Coffees is a testament to Adventist Health, making a difference there in Lake County, and around the world with organizations like the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and the American Birding Association.

Visiting the Roastery

Back in February, the Adventist Health team took the time to visit the Thanksgiving Coffee headquarters, and get to know the coffee roasting industry. They toured our roastery and learned the fine art of steaming milk and pulling espresso shots from our Roastmaster, Jacob Long. We got them caffeinated and introduced them to the behind-the-scenes details of coffee roasting.

The Adventist Health team has done a marvelous job of setting up the new coffee station, and Thanksgiving Coffee is proud to be a part of bringing great coffee to the people of Adventist Health Clear Lake. Be sure to tell their new barista Mary hello from all of us! The coffee counter is open Monday through Friday, from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Home Plate San Francisco has Moved

Just a mile away from San Francisco’s crookedest street is a classic old-school diner on Lombard that has graced the city of San Francisco for over thirty years. Home Plate in San Francisco has long been the breakfast choice of Bay Area locals, and they have now grown into a new location.

Home Plate in San Francisco

Thankfully, they haven’t moved far. This homage to the baseball years of old has shifted their location to a block west on Lombard Street, into a larger space. With the added area, they’re almost doubling their sitting area, and will be able to accommodate many more visitors for breakfast and lunch.

Coffee at Home Plate San Francisco

Thanksgiving Coffee has been Home Plate’s coffee provider since the very beginning, and they’re one of our favorite accounts to visit in the city. The coffee at Home Plate also received an upgrade during the move; a new brewer was just installed, and we had took some time to train their new in-house barista on espresso drinks, as well.

The Bay Area continues to offer some of the best food in the country, and we are so happy to provide coffee for the leading breakfast spots.

Home Plate San Francisco is open now in their new location:

2150 Lombard St
San Francisco, CA 94123

People have been enjoying breakfast at Home Plate in San Francisco for over three decades, but these photos are from some more recent excursions at this hot spot on Instagram:
