Caydence Records and Coffee is a wonderful local coffee shop located on Payne Avenue in East St. Paul. Established in 2016, Caydence has an array of specialty beverages with unique flavors, from the East Cider to the House Miel. The East Cider is apple cider with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and clove, garnished with apple and caramel. The House Miel is a twist on the traditional latte, with nutmeg, cinnamon, and honey. 

They also have a variety of traditional beverages, like hot cocoa, cold brew, espresso beverages, and loose leaf teas. Caydence uses locally sourced ingredients and blends from Bootstrap Coffee Roasters, which is located right here in St. Paul, for their beverages. 

However, Caydence is not just your regular coffee shop – it also has a vinyl record store inside. From classic rock to modern pop, there are many appealing genres. There is a rich diversity of popular artists, but also artists that are not as well known. Along with vinyl, Caydence also has a large assortment of cassette tapes and CDs.

Pre-pandemic, Caydence would often host live events in their small performance space at the back of the venue. Local artists from the area would come and play in the evenings to entertain small audiences. Art from local artists is showcased throughout the building and is frequently available for purchase.

Caydence is very involved with the community, with their live events, locally sourced ingredients, local artist displays, and more. If you are looking for a good local coffee shop and record store, check out Caydence Coffee and Records!
