Lunch at Tamp & Tap 

Finally got a chance to check out Tamp & Tap, the coffee/beer place on Gayoso near 2nd. The space is large and good-looking with backlit wood on the walls and "branding" accents of the business' logo, etc. Gears make appearance throughout, suggesting a machinery theme.
More nods to machinery comes via sandwich names like the Stanley ($9), a turkey sandwich with fontina, candied pancetta, and roasted artichoke aioli. Sandwiches come with a choice of either cucumber or house salad, a orzo pasta, chips, or hummus.
One member of our party opted for the hummus to go with the Stoddard ($9), a sandwich with mortadella, salami, capicola, etc. The hummus comes with three hefty pita chips, but when the chips ran out, this coworker used his sandwich to finish off the hummus.
The Rambler ($9) is a serious-looking sandwich. It's roast beef with cheddar, beemster cheese, fried onion, and shiitake confit.
The Packard ($7) is a grilled cheese+. The garlic puree makes this sandwich taste like cheesy garlic bread in the best way.
Tamp & Tap also offers a number of desserts -- mini cupcakes, cookies, and cake, like this very rich and very good caramel cake.
Tamp & Tap's pourover coffee ($3 for regular; $4 large) is made with this set-up.
This interesting contraption appeared to be for ice coffee, but ...
But ... the ice coffee ($3) we got came (delightfully) from a tap in the wall.
