This place is relaxing. Attached to the History Museum and Federal Courthouse, it definitely has a college vibe (go UWT) You will like it.

Sandwich was good, but needed some kind of sauce to moisten it. The iced tea was full of ice, so there was little tea. Next time, I will ask for less ice. Service was quick and polite; at noon, it gets busy. Glad we got there early.

Good coffee interesting decor. Shabby chic. Enjoyed the view and near the glass bridge. They are doing construction near the front so use the side door.

This place is nuts, so don't go there if you want a quiet place to study! I love seeing Anthem grow because it has become a place where everyone passes through at some point. It's adjacent to a great park, it's central to this smallish city, it gives fabulous people watching and it's spacious enough to handle a large group.... More

We grabbed coffee here before going on a stroll in downtown Tacoma. Highly recommend this place if you want some good quality coffee. Not syrupy sweet and you can actually taste the coffee!

Traveling through Tacoma and desperate for coffee, we made a quick stop at Anthem Coffee. The coffee was delicious and exceeded expectations, but we didn't love the chai.

We stopped in on an afternoon looking for an iced coffee and a quick sandwich. We were not disappointed. Real food made to order, breakfast and lunch both available. Good iced coffee, and a quirky atmosphere that was both relaxing and interesting. Patio seating also. Convenient to the museums. Friendly staff. The sandwich was good. Nothing to complain about.

This coffee shop has great music, salvaged materials used for seating, and very friendly staff. I loved the atmosphere. Indoor and outdoor seating is comfortable, too. 20% military discount and 10% discount for locals. Delicious coffee, their dirty chai was wonderful.
