Country motif located in a faux Barn in Tacoma auto row. Food was unremarkable but what you would expect from a fake barn in the middle of a city.

A dinner I’ve passed while traveling north on I5 for years finally stopped by during a business trip. All locals, waitress knows everyone’s name. Very much an old greasy spoon dinner. With so many locals in here, I was a little to self-conscience to take a picture of the food but it was the same as all the other canned hash, see Sara’s Coffee Shop

This is a bar and has fairly loud music even in the morning with no one else there.

While good, one of the best breakfast places around is just across the street so really the only reason you would come here instead of the sun break café (other than they don’t have CBH) is that you don’t want to wait an hour to get in.

That being said, it was very good hash and as long as you don’t mind sitting in a sports bar to have breakfast (don’t come here to get over your hangover), they do make a very good breakfast.
