Stopped by here on a walk through awesome neighborhoods, old well maintained houses, flowers everywhere. Great area adjacent to the up and coming Proctor neighborhood. Just blocks away from University of Puget Sound (one of the most attractive college campuses in the US!). We each...More

Good coffee. Good, simple food. Opens early. Nice staff. Their signature espresso drink with chocolate and orange is wonderful, and their breakfast panini are satisfying. We went two days in a row, and will be back.

I feel very fortunate to have Cafe Brosseau near my house. Locally owned, the proprietors have Tacoma Pride. The business is named after the brothers who built the original shop in 1912. They serve Madrona Coffee - which is very good and not commonly found....More

I drive down to Tacoma from Seattle to work with a photographer on N I St. Just a few blocks past his place is Cafe Brosseau. I will stop in to get a cappuccino prior to work. The service and atmosphere are both very good.

Visited this place every morning while visiting a friend in town. Great cappuccino and a cute place. I loved the artwork on the wall and purchased a piece to take home too!

I walked down from my Bed and Breakfast and had a freshly made sandwich and iced tea. It was great to be able to sit outside and people watch as I ate.

A fun place for coffee and breakfast-great selection of pastries. Very kid-friendly with lots of toys and activities. My girlfriend and I had a leisurely breakfast, very comfy and unhurried. Reasonably priced, too.

Stopped by this newer coffee shop in Tacoma on a recent Sunday afternoon. It was filled with typical Tacoma hipsters and presented a somewhat Bohemian, artsy vibe. Cafe Brousseau is one of several independent shops that brew everything by the cup - so no pot...More

Had a hard time picking a breakfast sandwich since the menu is chock-full of great choices. Eventually got the logger with a coffee press and my belly was happy. Wifi is fast, seating is plentiful and comfy, natural light is in abundance and service is...More
