The Backporch Café was established in 1997 by Mike Cooper. Originally, it was a small pie and coffee shop called “Sweetie Pie.” Paxton Signs created the main sign for this establishment. After establishing “Sweetie Pie,” Cooper reached out to his regulars for new name suggestions. Eventually, The “Backporch Cafe” was the one that resonated. At that early time, the area known as their main dining room was actually a deck that provided outdoor seating. The necessary indoor seating was available at the bar tap or in the back room by their neighboring shop, “Lamb Spun.” So the name, “The Backporch Café” seemed suitable.
How we designed and built The Backporch Cafe sign
Having already built the Sweetie Pie sign, Paxton Signs and The Backporch collaborated on the signage currently used, including the purple archway with gold leaf letters, and sun motif elements. (In addition, Paxton Signs also created the large Lamb Spun, gold leaf sign, located on the corner of Lincoln and Lemay.)
