Tatte bakery is one the best of it's kind in Boston. From pastries, to salads, coffee, and the epic shakshouka, it's a perfect brunch spot! You may remember my previous post on Tatte's fabulous pastries and breakfast sandwiches. This post focuses on their refreshing salads and comforting shakshouka plates for brunch.
I ordered the watermelon + pistachio salad (without feta). This summer salad comes complete with snow peas and a light vinaigrette dressing. The watermelons were all perfectly fresh and full of flavor, and they did not skimp out on the pistachios which is impressive since they're pretty expensive! This plate was super refreshing (and pretty), but I almost felt like it needed something a little heavier to balance all of the light flavors.
This is the infamous shakshouka. One blogger claims it's second only to the shakshouka found in Israel, and I believe it! With eggs and tomato sauce, this warm dish is super hearty and delicious! I kept sneaking bites of it in between my salad forkfuls.
After hunting for free seats for a while, we were finally able to snag a couple at the main communal dining table. I Loved the industrial light fixtures and the rustic centerpiece. All in all, Tatte puts in the effort for a fab brunch. I do wish they had more gluten-free options, but their dishes are all incredible, as is the atmosphere.
