During our visit to Newport last summer, we visited a coffee shop I’ve been wanting to visit, probably since we’ve been heading to Boston – Tatte. Friends and fellow coffee-lovers that I know who’ve had it, say that it’s pretty good, so I knew when we were looking for coffee shops to try that this was one of the places I wanted to visit while there. So after deciding the day we’d head up to visit Beantown, we queued up some podcasts and headed directly to Tatte before starting our day.
We ordered ahead – something we’ve typically done whenever grabbing coffee lately because it’s so convenient. By the time we arrived and found parking, thankfully pretty close to the cafe, our coffees and my breakfast sandwich were ready.
They have a pretty extensive menu with many options to chose from. While I opted for a sandwich, they have countless dishes you can choose from. Since we had in mind where we wanted to eat for lunch, we decided to go light for brunch. My husband decided he wanted to save his appetite for pizza and dinner later, so I ordered myself an egg sandwich with avocado on a croissant. The egg sandwich came with eggs, any style (I got them scrambled), with cheese, arugula, and tomato. It was so filling and delicious that even when it came time for us to eat lunch, my husband finished the rest of the slice of my pizza because I couldn’t. The croissant was flaky, buttery, and contrasted really nicely with the other ingredients I opted for on my sandwich. I would definitely get it again.
Both my husband and I enjoyed our lattes. I decided to try something different than what I usually go for, so I went with hazelnut syrup and oat milk rather than my traditional mocha. I don’t typically go for hazelnut, but I’m glad that I did when trying Tatte’s coffee. My husband got mocha in his, which he also said was delicious. I liked that the flavor of the coffee was strong enough that I could still taste the coffee through the strong flavor of the hazelnut syrup. I think that if we were planning to stay in Boston longer than we did, we would’ve definitely made our way back there the following day for our caffeine fix.
