Tatte Bakery and Cafe Is Opening a Second Location in Cambridge's Kendall Square

A bakery with locations in Brookline and Cambridge is planning to expand once again.

Eater Boston is reporting (via a Craigslist post) that a new Tatte Bakery & Cafe is apparently on its way to Broadway in the Kendall Square section of Cambridge. This would be the second Kendall Square location for the bakery, which opened a spot on Third Street this spring. The original Tatte (which is called Tatte Fine Cookies & Cakes) is located on Beacon Street near the Brookline/Boston border.

[March 7, 2013 update: A more recent post from Eater Boston indicates that the new Tatte in Kendall Square plans to open sometime in May. EB also mentions that this cafe will be about half the size of the other Kendall Square location.]

Tatte had also been in the news this summer, inking a deal with Williams-Sonoma to have the San Francisco-based retail chain sell some of their food items.

Based on a entry within Yellowbook, the address for the new Tatte may be 205 Broadway. Their website can be found at

[June 3, 2013 update: A License Commission General Hearing page on the City of Cambridge website confirms the address as being 205 Broadway, and the page also mentions that Tatte hoping to have seating for 19 inside and another 12 on an outdoor patio, with hours being 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Saturdays, and 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sundays. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, June 11, so stay tuned for further updates.]

[June 4, 2013 update: Eater Boston states that the new location of Tatte has a planned opening date of July 1.]

[July 23, 2013 update: According to their website, the new location of Tatte is now going to be opening on August 12. (Thanks to a poster on the Chowhound site for bringing this to our attention.)]
