In sharp contrast to my experience at Tandem, where the coffee was spectacular and the barista super friendly and engaged in talking coffee, Speckled Ax got off on the wrong foot right away, when, after I tried to help pick up the sign that had been knocked down by the wind, a barista seemed to give me attitude when I asked if he was going to leave it up. The other barista inside wasn't much better, giving me the impression with every interaction that she did not really value my presence.

And the coffee itself, a Colombian roast, while not bad, was just a 6.5, compared to an 8 for the Tandem.

They DO, however, have wi-fi and electricity--Tandem doesn't really, unless the barista plugs you in behind the counter.
