Tandem Bagels Logo

An authentic bagel is kettle-boiled and hearth-baked. Mankato has not had a source for these bagels in some time, and Tandem Bagels reached a point where we decided to do something about it. Our group made a pact to create a bakery and coffeehouse that combines scratch, on-site baking, locally roasted coffee, and fresh, delicious food in the heart of City Center Mankato. We enlisted the help of a few others: an acknowledged bagel master, and a cook extraordinaire. Together, this dedicated band is committed to creating an oasis of fresh foods and
good times.

There are many shortcuts available in the restaurant business, but we believe every shortcut comes at the expense of flavor and integrity. It's not the easy way, but once you experience our food and ambiance, we think you'll agree, it's worth the time and effort. We truly value your patronage and opinion—please let us know how we're doing!
