Tatte Fine Cookies and Cakes, Cambridge

We have heard several positive reviews about Tatte Fine Cookies and Cakes for some time now and were thrilled that a dear friend wanted to meet up at Tatte to do a proper catch up. Our experience was delicious and the treats we saved for later were equally memorable.

Tatte sells select product and its delectable tarts through Williams Sonoma including the mixed nut, pecan, pistachio, pear plum and Belgian chocolate tarts (BMH’s Memories of BrusselsPierre Marcolini, and Mary Chocolatier).

We loved the dainty cookie assortment tray and would be perfect for a dinner party or hosting a cocktail reception. Our friend purchase a single nutella cookie and seemed quite  happy with the treat. (BMH’s Nutella filled chocolate chip cookies).

Tatte’s bakery display reminded us of the boulangeries (bakery shops) in Le Marais in Paris.

Our favorite element of the shop was the whimsical and delightful chandelier. _MG_4788

We decided on the Crunchy Halloumi salad for $13, but reserved the crispy and tangy halloumi on the side because our friend was eliminating dairy. To our pleasure, more halloumi for us! _MG_4789

The mix of toasted carrots, radish, apples, white raisins, parsley and mint topped with sliced toasted almonds  in a red wine vinegar dressing was perfectly sweet, tangy and refreshing. We devoured the salad. Besides the Zuni Caesar from Zuni Cafe, this is one of the best salads we have ever eaten._MG_4790The Shakshuka, traditional North African dish with poached eggs, pepper and tomatoes, served with bread for $10 was perfect. The acidity of the tomato sauce went ell with the smooth goat cheese, brightness of the basil and creamy eggs.  We have the Saveur recipe just waiting to be recreated._MG_4791

After a glass of the refreshing mint lemonade (not pictured) we couldn’t leave Tatte without a few treats for the road. Be sure to request a box and bow to impress a loved one._MG_4795

The rustic apple tart was gorgeous and had sugar granules on the edges of the flakey pie crust. The slices of apple were nicely spiced and we just wish there were more sugar granules on the apples._MG_4794The pecan tart with caramel throughout and buttery shortbread crust was unreal. This is a must have and for $4.00 for an individual tart, you must get it. The mixed nuts and pistachio tart are in the queue to sample next.
_MG_4799Although considered expensive to some, Tatte is worth it as a treat. The experience and pastries are of the highest quality and care.  Next time, we would like to try the Shiitake mushroom and tomato confit sandwich for $8.50 and Poached eggs with grilled marinated tomato and halloumi cheese served over sourdough bread for $9.
