good high end sandwich, potentially the best sandwich place in the boring and terrible kendall sq area

“Great, coffee & pastries-but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great French roast coffee, cappuccino & latte & their nut baskets & croissants are superb. The only issue here is that the prices are on the high side ($4.25 for an almond croissant) & there are usually lines for coffee so it takes a while. If you work/live in the Kendall Square, 3rd St area, this is the place to get yourself a good cup of java. Pastries if your budget allows.

“Exquisite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

This is what *food* should taste like! Pastries were delicious--my favorite was the Chocolate Rose. I might have to go back o Cambridge just to eat that again.

You can tell each dish is made with good ingredients and care. The middle Eastern platter was the best I've had anywhere. Pita was wonderfully fluffy and the hummus and baba ghanoush, amazingly delicious.

Thank you, Tatte!

“Excellent sandwiches, great coffee, lively atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We went there yesterday (Sunday) with two friends around 1:30 pm. The place was packed but soon four places opened at the communal table. Among the four of us we tried four different sandwiches, several different coffee drinks, and a few pastries. We loved the Savich and the Balkani sandwiches both featuring eggplant in some unusual combinations. In addition to eggplant, the Savich also had egg and cucumber and the Balkani had feta cheese, tomatoes, and pesto. We loved both combinations as they reminded us of Balkan/Mediterranean cuisine. The meat ball sandwich was juicy and flavorful while the fresh mozzarella in the mozzarella sandwich was indeed very fresh. All the sandwiches were rather large and filling. The coffee drinks were great -- I highly recommend the Illy espresso. The pastries were delicious although I only had a bite because I was so full from my sandwich.

This is a very lively, loud, fast-paced and happening place.

“Hard to resist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Living just in front of this bakery, it has become more and more difficult each day not to stop there to grab something. We usually go there just for a slice or two of cake (cheesecake, chocolate mousse cake, apple/pear tarts) to go, but occasionally also for the Saturday or Sunday brunch (try the Shakshuka). Needless to say, all is excellent, even if I can be a bit pricey.
Finding a place to sit can be a little bit tricky though, but you generally can make it, at least for brunch (I can't speak about weekdays lunch, since I don't work in the neighborhood).
