If you are not familiar with Tacoma neighborhoods you might miss this place. It's small and cute with a good menu for lunch and brunch. We had sandwiches ( vegetarian, meatball, and roast beef) and quiche. All were delicious. Servers attentive and friendly, filling water whenever needed. Would eat here again.

Not what it used to be. The food is mediocre (and it appeared to be microwaved, not freshly made and cooked). Hoping that the lunches are still good because we're not going back for dinner, for sure. Beer cheese soup got a thumb's up from spouse but the chicken breast and the salmon, not so much. The bruschetta appetizer was... More

Stopped here for lunch while dropping off son at college. Had a great chicken salad caprese sandwich. Both were excellent. Did not have a specialty drink or dessert but they looked enticing as well as many other items on the menu. Including nice selection of wines and micro brewed beers and root beer. Will definitely go back next time in... More

No chain restaurant food here. For lunch or dinner, you won't find a more interesting menu and better service...

I went with a friend for lunch, and we had a lovely time along with delicious food! We sat outside and enjoyed the summer's day and were delighted that the server was still quite efficient with checking in on us and refilling our drinks. I really enjoyed my sandwich and can't wait to go back and try some of the... More

This is a quaint restaurant that serves great salads, sandwiches and dinners. I like the caprese sandwich and the big tuna melt. Entrees I like are the chicken pot pie and the mac and cheese if you are feeling decadent. It is small but in the summer you can dine on the sidewalk.

At the last minute decided to meet family in Tacoma for lunch. This restaurant came up with good reviews so decided to try it out. It won't be our last time here either. Food is great with friendly service. This is a small place and can got very crowded around 1 so come earlier if you don't want to wait.

At the corner of Warner and North 26th, the Rosewood Cafe is a hidden gem in a mostly residential area. I've been a lunch patron for years and since the new owners took over the menu has thankfully remained consistently good and fresh, and the "new" items are equally delicious. The Rosewood specializes in salads and sandwiches, and offers a... More

This is a little neighborhood restaurant on 26th just outside the Proctor District. My only complaint would be that the menu is a little limited but, the food is good, the service is good - pot pie and a glass of wine!

Went there with a friend for the first time a few days ago. The place was very busy on a weekday lunch hour. The menu was typical American comfort food. We ordered two hot sandwiches, tuna melt and Reuben. Both were pretty good and reasonably priced. The beet salad we ordered was great. It was a nice relaxed lunch experience.
