When most folks choose new homes they take into consideration important aspects such as school districts, commute to work, interior design, whether the yard is fenced and so forth. When a "foodie" chooses a home, its proximity to quality dining is a big factor. Don't laugh; this is science!

My home is a short stroll to Tacoma's Proctor District - meaning many dining options, for all types of occasions, are nearby. The closest is just offset from the heart of the district, The Rosewood Café.

For those unfamiliar, the Rosewood is an intimate, charming joint offering a menu of mostly sandwiches and shareables highlighting lots of fresh produce and delectable cheeses. An impressive wine list and rotating craft brews elevates the neighborhood lunch and dinner cafe to hot spot status.

One of my favorite Rosewood shareables is the Mediterranean Bruschetta ($6.50). Crumbles of feta cheese, chopped tomatoes, red onions and a light housemade Mediterranean dressing are partnered with lightly toasted crostini. It's aromatic, flavorful and a delightful and light start to your Rosewood experience.

The Rosewood earns bonus points with their growlers and refill capabilities. Take a bit of some of those awesome, often local, craft beers home with you or score big with their cheap wine Mondays and take home a bottle.

I will never move ... unless a house hits the market one block closer.

THE ROSEWOOD CAFÉ, 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, 3323 N. 26th Tacoma, 253.752.7999
