Amocat Cafe: A new brew in Tacoma

If Morgan Alexander is a familiar name to you, it’s probably because of his work as an historic preservationist advocating for the return of a streetcar system in Tacoma. This week, however, Alexander took on a different role: owner of Amocat Cafe. During a visit to the cafe Wednesday, Alexander, a Tacoma native who graduated from Stadium High School, explained that owning a cafe has been his long-time goal. He signed the lease on the space at 625 St. Helens Ave. in February, and opened for business on June 1. Amocat Cafe is currently open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and serves locally roasted Valhalla Coffee, along with pastries, tea, and soda. Alexander says he plans to expand the business hours and add beer and wine to the menu in the future. For more information, visit .
