Great breakfast. French toast was almost as good as my wife’s. Serve yourself drinks with very good coffee. Worth the walk from my hotel.

We were staying at the Courtyard down the street and stopped in for breakfast. Delicious waffles and French toast with a self service beverage station. Laid back atmosphere on a nice block of Pacific Avenue. The berry syrup was homemade.

Quaint and comfy spot for a bite and a coffee while in the rebounding downtown Tacoma. Right across from the State History Museum and Tacoma Art Museum. Next door to UWT. You will be glad you stopped in!

The first few times I paid a visit to the Starbuck’s on Pacific Avenue in downtown Tacoma, I never noticed the Renaissance Café. When I finally did, I am so glad I popped in. The staff are what makes all of the difference. While our...More
