Our last morning in Tacoma, we decided a little do-over was necessary. Holly and I hailed a cab, grabbed two additional co-workers, Corey and Julie, and headed to Caffe Dei. We walked through some misty, gray chill and into the warmth of coffee shop goodness.
Caffee Dei is a vegan-friendly shop with a similarly as sweet of a coffee machine as Austin’s Houndstooth Coffee. Julie and I ordered super-sized Americanos and Corey and Julie went with mochas that were almost too beautiful to drink. We munched on breakfast muffins and cinnamon rolls and mmmmm’d in total disbelief that they were vegan.
The vegan sausage sammy on homemade sourdough and mushroom gravy continued the mmmmmm’s. It was the perfect savory start to a gloomy Pacific Northwest day. And after we all had clean plates and empty cups, the only option for our group was to order a second round of warmth and goodies and continue our conversation. Caffee Dei was the absolute best spot we could have chosen to spend our last hours in Tacoma!
