Fresh off an opening in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood, Tatte Bakery & Cafe has made its debut in another new area of the city. The Back Bay bakery, located at 399 Boylston St., opened its doors at 7 a.m. on Thursday, January 18, unveiling a precisely tiled interior and a pastry case filled with familiar baked goods.
The new bakery is located near the Boston Public Garden and features large black booths and the usual lineup of sandwiches, soups, salads, and all-day brunch on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, which includes multiple versions of shakshuka. While it maintains a broad selection of standbys on the menu, Tatte makes seasonal updates based on the availability of ingredients. Its winter menu currently features a mac and cheese dish made with cavatappi, creamy fontina, and smoked Gouda sauce and topped with parsley and toasted bread crumbs.
Tatte’s following has grown drastically since its founding in 2007, and after Panera acquired just over a 50 percent stake in the bakery in 2016, founder Tzurit Or pushed forward with an expansion that’s resulted in eight total bakeries across Boston, Cambridge, and Brookline. Or still runs operations independently.
