706 Opera Alley Ct C
Tacoma, WA 98402
Tucked away in Opera Alley, B Sharp has a roomy interior with seating that primarily consists of sturdy tables and chairs and a koosh area with a couch and chair that could just swallow you up in comfort - perfect for good conversation or just reading.
The cafe is spacious, but not so much so that it doesn't serve as an amazing, intimate live music venue on Saturdays. A musician himself, owner Dennis Ellis paid special attention to this aspect, leaving ample space for a well-lit stage area beckoning local jazz acts.
To sip, B Sharp features coffee concoctions courtesy of Bluebeard beans with a special focus on slow coffee including Chemex, vacuum and French press methods. Other libations include Mad Hat loose-leaf teas and a fabulous variety of microbrews and boozy grape juices from Seattle winery Corfini Cellars.
There's a fair selection of fresh salads ($6-7.99), sandwiches and appetizers ($5-12.99) such as antipasti skewers, hummus and a cheese platter, so I inquired and chose the hot item of the day, The Duet ($7.99). This sandwich features sliced turkey with melted provolone, fresh organic spinach, zesty red onion and tomatoes all grilled for a moment making the exterior golden and crispy and warming the insides to a beautiful flavorful matrimony.
