Super cute spot, went in for pastries for my son. They say gluten friendly and are apparently delivered wrapped separately, but they warn they cannot guard against contamination completely.

My friends and I had brunch here in October 2021. Their menu has many items marked as gluten friendly, a term I find confusing and wish restaurants would not use. They have gf bread so their sandwiches can be gf, but I am not sure if they have a separate toaster or go through the effort to avoid cross contamination. Since it was busy for brunch on a beautiful fall morning, I didn't bother asking. I had the rice bowl with acorn squash, broccoli with a poached egg since it's naturally GF. It was delicious and I did not get sick. I recommend if you are in the area, but ask a lot of questions before ordering or stick to something naturally gf like their rice bowls.

I stay away from the bakery goods and get their gluten free meals (without bread), and have never had an issue. They are knowledgeable about celiac and take precautions, but I think it’s just really hard to avoid cross contamination with the GF baked goods so I haven’t chanced it.

I’ve had luck here, it is a bakery and they say gluten friendly but the staff told me all the efforts are used to make them gluten free, however, they just can’t guarantee. But I have celiac and have been fine.

It’s a bakery, there is gluten all over. Their coffee used to be great, but they changed brands.

They call it gluten friendly, a chance for cross contamination. But I have never had trouble. I get their krembo or pavlova which are to die for. And their famous Shakshuka is even gf! I would tentatively say safe

I have to echo what others have said, the latte was great but the gluten-free brownies left me miserable last night. I was up until after 3am with gastric upset. I've been to a lot of places that serve both gf and non-gf versions of food on the same counter and haven't had an issue so I'm thinking it's more than a tiny amount of cross contamination.

They have more gluten free options than most bakeries and the sandwich I had was delicious, but you can’t be sure about cross contamination

Not a gluten free environment. Ovens are NOT gf. Food looks great, but high risk if ypu have Celiacs.

Not a ton of gluten free choices but I had the quinoa spring veggie bowl and it was excellent - both gluten free and vegetarian. Very good tea and coffee too - and great food for both veg and non veg allies (people who aren't gluten free themselves but are willing to go with me to places that I can eat). Cool upscale European vibe. The three stars is simply for the limited gf options, not the quality of the gf dishes themselves.

While the flourless brownies were to die for, I definitely felt like I was dying afterwards. Highly recommended if you don't have to worry about cross-contamination though!

Was there after the re-opening. No GF menu as stated in previous reviews.

Had a chocolate layered cake and their hard-marshmallow-fluff thing. The hard-marshmallow-fluff thing did nothing for me, and the slice of cake was just alright. For these two things I spent $16 and was left with a lot more to be desired.

The cake was very difficult to eat and enjoy b/c there was a nougat-like laker underneath the top-most chocolate ganache layer. The tough-nougat layer caused the inner layers of the cake to spill outward while attempting to fork through. So, you end up with the top-nougat-like layer and the bottom cake layer on your fork then have to scrape the squeezed-out inner layers of the cake from your plate to enjoy a bite. Doesn't sound pleasant does it? It wasn't, and was also very frustrating. Oh well. #firstworldproblems Either way, this shouldn't be a problem given the league of the bakery Tatte is. I will say all the components of the cake were delicious but the placement of the layers was off and needs to be re-evaluated.

Would I go again? Maybe. But only to give the bakery I had high-hopes for a second chance.

I tried their candied almonds- pretty good! I wasn't adventurous in trying anything baked because I was afraid of cross contamination, but next time I'm around the area, I'll have to!

It's rare to find a good bakery with a gluten free menu--and I seemed to have stumbled upon one! I went there the other day and they had a GF menu. Tried the flourless brownie--it was amazing. Definitely going back.
