Tatte Bakery & Cafe's first-ever location reopened this morning at 7 a.m. after a two-month closure during which the store underwent extensive renovations. The bakery's founder, Tzurit Or, said customers were lined up outside prior to opening, waiting for a look — and taste — of the new Brookline Tatte.
The seating capacity inside the store at 1003 Beacon St. increased fivefold, going from eight seats to 40, while the outdoor seating went from 15 to 40, Or said. Tatte also expanded its kitchen, making more room for the bakery to offer its full savory menu, which is also featured at its locations in Cambridge. (And a new Cambridge location is on the way — Tatte is expanding to Harvard Square.)
"[The newly renovated Brookline location] is beautiful, spacious, it welcomes you as a customer and it's simply great," Or wrote in an email to Eater. She said the design was gorgeous and open. "It's packed, it's happy, it's great."
Additionally, Tatte put in two handicap accessible bathrooms in a change from the first version of the cafe, which did not have customer bathrooms.
The Beacon Street Tatte is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
