I was in the Triangle District on St Helens Ave, in Tacoma last week. I love this little neighborhood just north of downtown Tacoma. I had a meeting in the morning with my pals and coworkers Chanel Studebaker and Kim Thompson Schildt at the Amocat Cafe. My first time here and it was love at first site. It's so totally authentically Tacoma with a laid back vibe.
The Amocat Cafe serves well crafted espresso drinks, beer and wine, and tea from the Mad Hat Tea Company. They also have live music occasionally on Friday nights.
I'm looking forward to checking out the handcrafted small batch beers brewed in house. Amocat Cafe is home to Tacoma Brewing Company. I signed right up and became an official full fledged member of The Society for a Backwards Tacoma!
I haven't been in the Triangle for about two years and was so delighted to see all the new "local" businesses. I'll be back soon. I'm going to have to check out STINK, sounds like my kind of place, old world food and drink! I've heard a lot about and just have to try the warm panini pressed Stinker with peanut butter, blackberry jam, bacon, and bleu cheese. That sounds awesome!
