I’ve been meaning to stop at Sixth Avenue’s newest coffee shop since it opened in April 2011. Bluebeard is located at 2201 6th Avenue, Tacoma in the 1928 building which had previously housed Rector Antiques, Cafe WA and a Ford Dealership. They really have a lovely, open space with plenty of natural light. My iced Americano was very good. Service was a tad distracted, but pleasant. I might have had a treat, but there were only eight in sight. But if I had known they were from Corina’s Bakery I probably would have had one any way! Bluebeard roast their own beans, which can be purchased for home enjoyment.
The not so cheerful folktale of Bluebeard can be found here. I wish I had asked the guy behind the counter why they picked the name!
