The drinks are self serve... More

My husband and I enjoyed the day's special - an omelet stuffed with ham, spinach, tomatoes and hollandaise sauce - so much that we returned the next day. The cook very graciously made it for us again. Friendly, casual atmosphere.

Comfortable vibe, much better than... More

Located in the 1700 block of Pacific Avenue in the University of Washington District of Tacoma, this little cafe is such fun.
