Opening Today: The Amocat Cafe opens today at 625 St. Helens Ave. in Tacoma. It's hours are 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday, and is expected to expand those hours in the future. We wrote a little something on it a while back. The three-room (eventually four rooms) cafe serves pastries from Essential Baking Co. and doughnuts from Le Donut on Hilltop. Check out the full length Guerrilla Marketing Viral Trailer for Amocat Café, directed by Tacoma Urbanist Erik Bjornson, below. Oh, by the way, the credit card machine hasn't arrived yet, so bring cash today.

Can't wait to see Amocat now that it is officially open. They are going to need longer hours though if they are going to sell much beer and wine.

They'll also need to relocate that restroom that sits in the proposed beer/wine room. Nice to see someone working on the computer inside Amocat this morning. This spot has the potential to be a popular meeting space.

I love the back room. Perfect for a meeting. We are using Thursday and Friday for our company's strategic planning. It's a great escape from the office with coffee, food and free wi-fi. Bonus is we don't have to yell above loud, live music, which makes it difficult to work at my other fave coffee shop The Mandolin Cafe.
