Tandem Creperie & Coffeehouse opened not long ago at 2 S Main St. in Travelers Rest, SC. Their tag line is “Together is Better”, which describes how I feel about eating out with friends and family.
Located near the oft biked Swamp Rabbit Trail, Tandem also refers to the two-seater mounted on the wall.
Tandem’s interior has a fresh, urban feel, which is interesting because Travelers Rest is not urban.
Looking back almost a year, the space underwent a total remodel, financed in part by a successful Kickstarter campaign. See the video here.

. . . where you can watch your crepe being made if you are mesmerized by the process like I am. I love watching the deft manuvering of the paddle as it spreads thin batter on the crepe maker.
Our group of four (together is better) had two savory crepes (the guys) and two sweet crepes (the gals) for breakfast. Both savory crepes were $7.
And the sweet Apple Crisp was $6. It was filled with spiced apple slices and apple crisp topping (inside), then drizzled with caramel.
We opted for mugs of good, hot, fresh coffee rather than lattes. The help-yourself coffee station is toward the back, on the right.
Tandem, through decor, staff, and menu, exudes a feeling of joie de vivre. Stop in if you’re near Travelers Rest, biking or walking the Swamp Rabbit Trail, or even not too far away across the North Carolina border.
