Downtown Memphis has a new hangout called Tamp & Tap which brings something unique to the table: artisan coffee and local craft beers. This cafe has a cool environment decked out with wood accents and a spacious layout. Taylor Berger, who is also responsible for creating Chiwawa and Yolo, is the brains behind this new cafe.
As you can see this is the perfect place to unwind with buddies after a long day of work or just a cool spot to grab lunch. Tamp and Tap has two happy hours every week day, one from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. and one from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. During both happy hours, all drinks (beer, coffee, whatever) are $1 off. On Thursday nights (Pint Night), drafts will be $3 from 5 p.m. until close.
Speaking of lunch, this is The Packard, aka grown up grilled cheese, complete with three cheeses, brioche, and garlic puree. Side options are chips, cucumber salad, chilled orzo pasta, house salad, and hummus. We also ordered their pour over coffee, which is strong, aromatic, and amazing.
We decided to also check out their Chai Latte, and it may just be the best chai in Memphis. Its smooth and creamy, with plenty of spice, but sweet and smooth at the same time.
They also sell full salads, breakfast, custard (which I plan to try on my next visit) a new favorite Dr. Browns all natural soda (my drink of choice) and other baked goodies like cupcakes. Their cold brew coffee (pictured above) is available as well as local craft beers on tap.
