Truly the best coffee I have had in Tacoma. The indie vibe and excellent coffee makes this the best place in Tacoma to dial down and get work done.

Fiesta Taqueria
Restaurant
Fiesta Taqueria has been my go-to place for street tacos since they opened. The restaurant is small (previously an old Shell gas station) so it might take a decent amount of time to find a seat. But the salsa bar and bean dip are well worth the wait.
G-Men Ramen

Vancouver is known to have some of the best ramen in general, but G-men is my go-to! Get their spicy ramen on a cold day, and it will keep you warm and happy.

This Victorian tea shop hidden in Sumner is the perfect place for a mother's day celebration, or a relaxing weekend with your best friends. Stop by on a weekend and enjoy one of their tiered stands with savories and sweets, and make sure you skip breakfast so you save room for their unlimited scones with lemon curd!
Tinkertopia
Toy Store

Valley Farms is a small hidden treasure located just off of River Road. Their prices for fresh veggies can't be best, and their team is incredible at making sure you take home the freshest ingredients.
