Loved the bustling street scene. May May be for everyone, if you’re looking for a quiet breakfast outdoor cafe. Earl Grey with oat milk creamer and Jerusalem bagel! Yummy

Yum! Stop here if you’re nearby. Get here early the line was out the door around 11 am! Latte was super hot and the pistachio cherry tart was decadent! Too many choices, wish I would have gotten something to go!

We're happy we stumbled upon this little bakery while we were in Cambridge, it was so much more than we expected. Now I'm aware that they are a very popular chain. Tatte Bakery & Cafe has a wide variety of baked goods and brunch foods...including avocado toast, shakshukas, power bowls, quiches, sandwiches, and salads. Their pastry selection was much more expansive and fresh than your typical Starbucks or similar cafe. I just grabbed a muffin but my husband had their breakfast sandwich (eggs cooked to your preference, cheddar, and applewood smoked bacon on their housemade sourdough bread) and was very pleased with it. Their coffee was decent as well. Definitely worth checking out for a coffee and quick bite in the morning. I would try to place your order online before you head there (they crank out tons of online/takeout orders) because it was pretty busy when we were there.More

This is a gorgeous restaurant with outdoor seating that serves wonderful pastries and breakfast food. It is close to a beautiful little park. I would highly recommend Tatte for breakfast.

My wife and I had Smoked Salmon avocado & Egg Sandwich $11. Both of us surprised by the taste and texture of everything in it, especially the creamy egg. The soft bread adds to its delicacy. The salty, green herbed sauce is superb w/out being...overpowering. Had also a nice cup of latte, tasty chocolate croissant which my kids loved.More

In just the two nights we were staying in the Cambridge area, we stopped here three times. Twice for dessert and once for breakfast. We were staying in the Hampton in Cambridge and quickly learned the short walk here. My greatest joy about this place...was their huge offerings of gluten free desserts. I tried several. They were all wonderful! The breakfast was good too; I got a sandwich on gluten free bread. The coffee was good, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the outdoor seating area was shaded and nice. An all around great experience!More

Staying in the Kimpton Hotal near Cambridge galleria, there is no place to get a decent coffee or breakfast save for Tatte. Tatte delivered with a really delicious dinner and breakfast the next morning. The display of pastries is overwhelmingly beautiful. If I lived nearby...I would be a devoted regular. Alas.More

I love their mint lemonade! I had to wait a little while to get food, but not too bad. Their oatmeal raisin cookie is good, not super sweet.

I frequently go here for all kinds of situations whether it's to meet up with friends, have lunch with family, or just dine solo. They delicious food with the best presentation. You must try their lamb shakshuka which is this homey stew with toasted challah...bread. They're pastries are also very good, I recommend the halvah bomb which is a chocolate mousse cake filled with a sweet sesame paste. It's so great to have an Israeli bakery near by that provides a unique flavor, not often found in the US. The place is a little crowded, but somehow there is always a table around, and when you sit down you don't even notice other people. It's more pricey than going to a Starbucks, but it is so worth it for the quality of food and drink you're getting.More

Somehow, in the hustle and bustle that is Tatte, you can always find a little table to crowd around. Thank goodness, because the food here is just wonderful. We were there twice in a week and between all 6 of us, we tried all the...shakshuka variations, salads, various rice or grain bowls, avocado tarting, French toast and several pastries. The barista produced notable lattes and the staff were so gracious when we had a spill. Delightful. Will go back again for sure.More
