Tatte Bakery

The bakery replacing the old Savoy Bakery near St. Mary's T-stop in Brookline is open. I stopped by this morning after dropping off some dry cleaning and got myself a "chocolate rose" (chocolate swirls in brioche). It was a delicious if not exceptionally nutritious breakfast. The brioche was tender and the filling was nice, although perhaps it was fairly sweet so in the future I would be more likely to eat this for dessert than breakfast. It was pretty big and was $3 which I thought was reasonable for the quality. I also got some little meringue cookies that were $0.25 each, but I have not tried these yet. They had a bunch of other stuff - all of which looked good, some of was more expensive than I would buy (pear almond tart, etc - I know the ingredients are expensive, but I might rather try to make something like that myself than pay $25-30 for a tart). The space is nice and it is a definite improvement over the most recent incarnation of the Savoy bakery (which the last time I went served me weak, "hazelnut" coffee when I order a small coffee to go). They serve coffee and tea here, but I did not try any so I cannot yet say if it is better - but they did have some Illy espresso beans so I would imagine they are not going to serve weak, fake flavored stuff. :-) I am definitely planning to stop in and try something else when I pick up the dry cleaning.
