what's it like to live in Tacoma WA? or any other nice small cities to live in?

So I'm looking to live in a smaller-feeling city where one can:
1. live near work,
2. get around without crazy traffic (or to be really optimistic, on public transport)
3. have cafes, bars, and coffeeshops in one's neighborhood
4. not be completely twee/pseudo-hipster/no-one-here-actually-works-for-a-living (although some of this is ok and probably unavoidable)
I lived in Providence RI before and I thought it was about right. Is Tacoma like this? Is there public transport into Seattle? Where else should I consider?
