FYI, currently all my contacts are backed up to iCloud and are also on my iPad.
Contacts are not "backed up" in iCloud per the following:
So I think you mean you are using an iCloud contacts account on your iPhone (and iPad).
If that's the case, simply turn on the same account on your Mac! Go to System Preferences > iCloud, sign on to your account (Apple ID and password -- same as on the iPhone), then check the "Contacts" box, and they will all appear on your Mac!]
