The Tarbrush Café, also called Tarbrush Coffee, is a café chain from GTA III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City based on Starbucks Coffee. In the mission Cop Land in GTA Vice City, Tommy Vercetti has to blow up the café in the North Point Mall. In Vice City Stories, the unit at the mall has been converted to a men's clothing store called T&A Men.
In the game Manhunt, three Tarbrush Cafe stands can be found. One is located in the abandoned mall, one in the chemical plant and one in the 54th Street Subway Station.
This area is only accessible in Vice City up until the mission Cop Land, where the shop is destroyed and becomes inaccessible in the process.
- Though many think that the Bean Machine is Tarbrush Café's successor, there is a restaurant in Westdyke, Alderney. At first glance at the restaurant on Flathead Road it says Coffee Shop in generic font. But there are tables around the entrance of the restaurant that say Tarbrush Café on them.
- The Tarbrush Café's name may be a reference to the derogatory phrase "touch of the tar brush," used to denote a person who appears white, but is suspected to be partially of African or Asian descent.
- There is a Katana in the back office in the Vice City, which becomes unreachable after Cop Land.
- In addition to above, after Cop Land the shop entrance is blocked by the shop's signage, preventing the player from entering it. If you attempt to enter by the use of trainers, the interior is now unsolid, rendering this Katana unobtainable for the rest of the game.
