A new eatery and coffee shop near City Hall

A sign across Market Street from the Tacoma Municipal Building touts a new cafe, grill and coffee shop that promises to open soon in the space formerly occupied by the Java Bean coffee shop. Signage refers onlookers to check for information, and that link refers to the Penuel Cafe. No details yet on when the new eatery and coffee shop is scheduled to open.

New life for the 96-year-old Tacoma Elks building?

The News Tribune and Exit133 both offer stories today about potential new development that would make a major addition to the north end of downtown Tacoma, including the restoration of the Elks Temple building at 565 Broadway. Visit each site to join in the conversation about the potential project.
