Espresso Road Trip (TACOMA)

We are overdue for a trip to Tacoma. Tacoma has an excellent coffee scene and many of the best ones are located a 0.8 mile strip along 6th Avenue.

** If you wish to carpool, leave a comment on where you are leaving from and if you can drive. You are responsible for your own transportation. **

**Metronome (3518 6th Ave) - Uses both Victrola espressos and has several slow bar options.

Caffe Dei (2607 6th Ave) - Caffe Vita

Satellite (2811 6th Ave) - Stumptown

**Bluebeard (2201 6th Ave)

Valhalla (3918 6th Ave)

Do you like doughnuts? Between Metronome and Bluebeard is Legendary Doughnuts at 2602 6th Ave. One YELP reviewer said it was like Voodoo Doughnuts, but "less weird".

We will visit Metronome and Bluebeard for sure. The other places listed are optional. We will stay at Metronome for an hour before heading off to the next location. Since the coffee shops are so close together, we will likely walk unless the weather is awful.

LUNCH IDEA --> Taste of Tacoma

5400 N Pearl St Ruston, WA 98407

Also Pho King (1020 MLK)

RSVP YES if you can come.

    So far it looks like many of us are leaving Seattle from the North. We can meet at the Greenlake Park & Ride (north side) at 9 AM and then car pool. As we get closer to the event, we can confirm RSVPs and decide how many cars we will need.

    1 · June 17, 2013

    • Reginald M.

      I will meet you guys in Tacoma. Attending another meetup which ends at 9:15 in Bellevue.

      June 23, 2013

    • Pat F.

      Just to confirm: this park and ride is the one at 65th and I-5, correct?

      June 23, 2013

  • Karen S

    If I drive, I can fit 3 regular-sized people in my chickmobile. Or 4-5 midgets.

    June 17, 2013

    • Karen S

      Debbie, maybe you and Thuy can meet somewhere and I can pick you both up on the way?

      June 18, 2013

    • Karen S

      Hey Pat, message me your address and phone - I'll pick you up :)

    I live here so I'll try to catch you guys. One update for the list: Caffe Dei is no more. Went out of business sadly. If that messes up lunch plans for any vegetarians there is still an excellent Indian restaurant right next door.

      Thanks for the tip. I''ll cross them off the list.

    What time would the trip get back into Seattle?

    June 19, 2013

    • Michael *

      Hard to tell. Depends if you stay for lunch or leave after coffee. Maybe 3 PM? I doubt we will all leave at the same time.

  • Daisy

    June 16, 2013

    • Mark

      May I ride in your car? If so, please message me the details (i.e., contact info, when are we leaving, where do I need to be, etc.) Thanks.

    • Daisy

      I'm not sure where the P&R is but we can leave 104th and greenwood at 8:45-to be at the P&R by 9. We can finalize details closer to the date here's my number[masked]
