Tandem Coffee Roasters has a new cafe and bakery in the works at 742 Congress St. in Portland's West End. (This was the location that was going to be Jay Villani's Ideal Bakery, which got back-burnered and eventually scrapped after Salvage BBQ opened up.) From the release:
Tandem's cafe and bakery plans to pair its high-quality coffee menu with a full-scale baking program headed by Briana Holt, whose extensive resume most recently includes Pies 'N Thighs in Brooklyn, NY. Some of the seasonal bakery offerings will include sweet and savory pastries and a rotating selection of pies, all made on site. Expect more seating and a similar vibe to Tandem's East Bayside Location, i.e. hi-fi no wi-fi. Construction is expected to start in April with aims to open early summer.
