Lively and lovely breakfast

I think the style is a little semi-trashy bohemian French with large "community-tables" - it actually works nicely. The coffee is good, and the espresso OK strong, which is important especially in the morning. The ham-cheese croissants are generous as are the pain au chocolat. The service is... read more

This is a good place to grab good coffee if you don't want to wait 20 min for a latte at Voltage. Pastries are good if you like everything bready and brioche-like. Good people watching. If you like to eavesdrop on VC conversations this is the place for you.

Nice atmosphere with tables on street. Coffee was decent but not outstanding. Treats and desserts massively overpriced; servers extremely friendly, restrooms clean.

Delicious, delicious, delicious. Lattes; sandwiches; pastries. The decor is delightful in a retro-bistro style. The staff is notably gracious given the numbers of people lining up, especially at the popular times. Thanks, folks-behind-the-counter! People: Bring your significant other; your friends; your kids; your dog (outside tables in the better weather) and spend a lovely while at Tatte.

If you want somewhere to eat a good salad or a simple sandwich or just take a cup of capuccinno, try to go to the Tatte. Well, maybe it will be difficult to find a place to sit, because every day and every hour it is full!! The service is polite and the food very good. Go with your friends... More

OMG! Their pastries are out of this world. Everyone I have introduced to Tatte has been smitten by the variety of their pastry selection. Also, after around 6 pm they go on sale for $2. Great deal! Only what's left though, but be on the look out for the sale

This place is very popular so it is not so easy to go here and find a place to sit and relax. But I have enjoyed everything I have had from Tatte. Coffee is really good, the pastries are pretty awesome (depends on what you get - I've had some dry muffins but really delicious croissant and cookies) and very... More

In Cambridge (or several other Boston locations), if you want a mouth-watering selection of pastries, baked goodies, fresh OJ, coffee et cetera (as well as a break from the "usual" such places), then treat yourself to TATTE for a delicious breakfast. Take-out or sit-down at this cute little place.

I was in the area for 1 week and settled on Tatte as both my morning and afternoon walk destination for some tea/cocoa and chocolate croissant to give me that energy boost. It has a nice boisterous atmosphere to complement the caffeine. This is not one of those go and hang out with your laptop type places. You go here... More
