Amazing coffee, and great customer service. The atmosphere is intimate and feels like a real neighborhood business.

We had been to the other location of Tandem on Congress Street, which was 10/10, and decided to try this location, which is basically used as a coffee roasting location, but does have a coffee bar and a small assortment of treats. We had a coffee latte, and a cafe mocha, which were both awesome. Unfortunately, we didn't care for... More

Small cafe attached to the roast facility. The coffee is excellent and the staff are exceptional. I was able to prevail upon them to sell some of their green beans for home roasting. Whoever is their bean buyer is great at the job. Their Kenya AA Chorongi is delicious stuff and well worth it. The location is very convenient for... More

Try the Malt Iced coffee. Seriously awesome. It's a strong cold brew. Barista was friendly and it has a place to sit outside.

Found this place due to it being #1 on Trip Advisor. We are in love! Latte was incredible!! Don't expect a Starbucks experience - you are going to get high-quality, freshly roasted coffee served by passionate baristas in a quaint brick building. They even play records...YES!!

This is THE coffee shop to go to! Not only is the owner super friendly and informative, she is also the barista and can answer any questions you have about the brewing of the coffee or the roasting of the beans. They have a bunch of wild drinks too and serve a small cup of club soda to cleanse your... More

We are addicted to the malted iced coffee from the Anderson St. location. We have a business just down the street and nearly daily in the summer go grab malted iced coffee here, we prefer ours with almond milk. It is a nice use of a small old building and both owners are usually around hard at work. They also... More

I love freshly-roasted coffee, and this place does just that. So, maybe you'll go here to kinda check out the roastery, but then, you'll walk to the cafe area and of course, instead of just buying some beans roasted just a day or two ago, you will need to try their coffee/ espresso drinks, because, that's why you came here:...

They know coffee and do coffee really well here. It is a small location but the wait is worth it, because the quality is worth the wait. They have a handful of baked goods that come from their bakery downtown that are top notch & a very engaging staff. Definitely worth a stop by and real close to exit 7... More

I drove to Tandem this morning with my dog, and was pleased to find dog-friendly outside seating. The coffee was very good and the slice of coconut tea cake was huge (we share it 3 ways), and delicious. The staff was very friendly, and there was even a place to tie the dog up while getting my order. Two coffees... More
