Review: Barefoot Coffee is a hidden oasis for the coffee connoisseur
By Stan Rezaee
Hidden away at the tip of Downtown Campbell is an oasis for the coffee connoisseur and a patron of the local arts. Barefoot Coffee has brought its cultural flavor to Campbell.
Walk by and one will be marveled by the bohemian atmosphere of the art work that decorate the walls. Enter the shop and you are immediately welcomed by the coffee aroma along with a greeting from the friendly staff.
However describing the staff as "friendly" is poor understatement as if I'm comparing them to a friendly bartender. On the first visit I was a complete stranger to the staff but by the third visit I have become a recognized customer. They know what I like and at times offer new alternatives just to intrigue my curiosity.
Barefoot Coffee has a good selection of coffee and tea that is prepared fresh when you order. There are no pre-made tubs or over priced tea bags; brewing coffee and tea is a respected craft that can be tasted in every cup.
Just please don't butcher your coffee with cream and sugar or you have lost the natural flavor.
The staff takes pride in their craft it can be tasted by the quality of the coffee. Be aware that quality isn't cheap and if price is an issue than one could happily walk across the street to what ever Starbucks isn't crowded or the Jack N' Box down the street.
Best of all there is no bar near Barefoot Coffee; hence you don't have to worry about being harassed by the drunks and creeps.
is not only the best coffee shop in the area but it's the measuring stick I use to rate other coffee shops. This is the perfect little oasis to hide at during a wonderful weekend afternoon.
Final Score: 5/5
