Tatte Bakery & Cafe has a charming rustic bistro decor and international roots—founder Tzurit Or is a self-trained pastry chef who grew up in Israel and now sets up shop here in Boston. Tatte was founded in 2007 and strives to connect individuals with food, passion, and culture.
Tatte has a number of locations around Boston, but the one in Back Bay is certainly one of the most iconic with its chic black and white accents. Just about every Tatte is going to be packed on weekends, so expect a line. If you need peace and quiet to get work done, try the Tatte locations in Cambridge.
Pastry, bread, and gluten free menus are available, as is a seasonal menu with highlights such as veggie croque madame, ham and fried egg tartine, and shakshuka. Drink-wise, it’s hard to go wrong here, but if you want to see Tatte at their best, they make terrific house lattes. Vanilla is my go-to, but try a few variations and see what you think.
If you’re feeling hungry, definitely get the Kouign-amman, shakshuka, avocado tartine, and croissants (chocolate, almond, and pistachio are all excellent).
