Great breakfast and coffee selections prepared and served by friendly staff. It’s so good that it get so busy by mid-morning

The food portions were tiny given the price. Latte arrived cold, there was no seating available and no one bussing plates. Not a great experience.

I stayed farther away from this Tatte location but made a trip to come back for breakfast because I had a good experience in the past. Everything went well until. When I was 3/4 of the way through my lamb hash, I went to refill...my plastic cup of water and when I came back a Tatte staff member was clearing my lamb hash. He did not take my latte thankfully. That is why I am giving it one star. As I thought quickly about, I was able to get my plate back and finish my meal. I explained that he had taken my plate and he did not apologize. He did not say that he did anything wrong. I understand mistakes are made and it was early on Sunday brunch but I wonder the balance of cleaning tables and letting people enjoy the their meals. If the staff had even mildly acknowledged that it was not appropriate, I would not being writing this. I wanted to explain this to the manager after I ate my meal and it was going to be a further issues. I post it here for management to see and understand about the balance of having a high turnover place of customers. Honestly, everything else was great there and the staff were super respectful. It was unfortunate that this was last experience for my breakfast. Again I am a big fan of Tatte work but sharing this feedback for others to be aware.More

Over priced. Poor service. Great almond croissant and pastries, but worst cup of tea I’ve ever had! I removed the teabag from the pot and put it into my cup instead, but after 10 minutes I still had a warm cup of water with milk!

Very crowded and popular. Lots of locals, which is always good. Good selection of menu items and many of them are gluten free. Wonderful baked goods! The cherry pistachio bar was to die for! Great location!

Slow service, rubbish americano (I had 2 sips and just left it) and very expensive. Not my cup of tea (pun intended).

Tatte has several locations throughout Boston. The best place you could hope to find for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or when you’re craving sweets. Excellent sandwiches, hot and cold. The pressed fig, Brie and fresh pear on ciabatta is amazing! Croque Monsieur and Madame on a...croissant melt in your mouth. Don’t get me started on the pastries and desserts! All delicious! Highly recommend!More

Stopped here in the recommendation of a friend. Was very busy, but the order came out well and in a short time. And man, it was good! Feels like they are a much better version of Au Bon Pain. I see they located only around...Boston and some in DC. I am hoping they expand. Example: This place would kick a$$ in say Atlanta, Raleigh, etc.More

My colleagues and I had an excellent breakfast here. One had the sweet French toast which was outstanding. Another had the traditional shakshuka and I the lamb meatball shakshuka. Both were very good. Great coffee and lattes as well. Self service

Tatte was close to my hotel so I stopped in three times over the week. The breakfast sandwich was tasty. A cherry almond scone one day was lackluster and not worth it. But the very best is their Fig prosciutto on Ciabatta sandwich. Divine!

Stopped in with the family before a tour of Fenway. All of us easily found something on the menu. The oatmeal and scrambled eggs plate were both amazing…so fresh. Recommend the goat cheese and tomatoes with eggs!

It feels like a full service restaurant even though you order from the counter like a fast food place. There were a lot of really good items and we had no wait for a table. I'd agree with several other reviews that the service is...terrible but in a "seat yourself" and order at the counter place, you're simply not paying for table service. There is a college kid ringing you up at the register and someone else brings the food to the table. If you've ever eaten in a Nordstrom Cafe, its pretty similar, just worse service.More

We are totally addicted to this Cafe. We love their breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, bakery items and chai tea latte. There are several in Boston. You really should treat yourself. Totally delish!! So wish we had one in Las Vegas!

Everything baked in this bakery it’s absolutely delicious. I came to Boston for the first time a few years ago, and mi friend who was going to school here introduced it to me. Everything you order is absolutely delicious! • Todo lo que se hornea...en esta panadería es absolutamente delicioso.
