Dancing Goats Coffee in Tacoma’s Brewery District

When Dancing Goats Coffee Bar opened in the Brewery Blocks, Tacoma residents and UW students were treated to a great coffeehouse with a modern look not seen in their other Washington locations. The chic and cool-looking store features their fresh roasted coffee blends as well as the highest level of service.

The development at Brewery Blocks revitalized dining and retail space in the historic area of downtown Tacoma. Visitors enjoy outdoor café seating, ample parking and pedestrian-friendly streets with widened sidewalks featuring native landscaping. Located off the Thea Foss Waterway Bridge, Brewery Blocks also includes office space and residential lofts making their motto “Live. Work. Play.” a reality.

This district was highly attractive to the Dancing Goats team because of its accessibility to students, museums and the downtown workforce that visits Tacoma every day. According to Becci Ryder, Dancing Goats’ director of business strategy, “We wanted to be a part of the hustle and bustle of a downtown that is the hub of the community and bring our “Right Way” approach to the area.

“Our coffee sets us apart. We roast it fresh and it never sits on our shelves,” said Ryder. Batdorf & Bronson, parent company to Dancing Goats, visits coffee farms around the world to secure the best product. Each Dancing Goats store orders what they need for the week and only then is it roasted and shipped to their 10 locations in Washington and Atlanta, Georgia.

Located at Commerce and South 21st Street, the 2,000+ square foot Dancing Goat Coffee Bar offers indoor and patio seating and is open 8am to 6pm. The location features the Dancing Goats blend which brews well as espresso or as a drip.
