I love coffee shops and cafés. The smell of fresh coffee brewing and the look of people quietly sitting at their tables working on their laptops or girlfriends chatting together sipping on lattes is a vibe I like very much.
There are certain things that I look for in a coffee shop or café. Great coffee, good ambiance, variety and great service. Boston has plenty to offer and there are two coffee shops and cafés that have caught my interest recently.
Tatte Bakery & Cafe
Tatte Bakery & Cafe wins in all aspects. The moment you enter, you are greeted by the smell of baked goods and fresh coffee. As a lover of anything freshly made, this is a winning combination in my book. Their menu is filled with lots of delicious items including avocado toast, topped with arugula and poached eggs. They even have shakshuka which is one of my favorite egg dishes. The decor is very crisp and like all their locations, the tiles are unique and eye capturing. No wonder many Boston bloggers can often be found here snapping cute Instagram photos. Tatte Bakery & Cafe is eye candy with a good menu to match.
La Colombe Coffee Roasters
La Colombe Coffee Roasters is a very no frills spot but is a winner when it comes to serving awesome coffee. I loved their colorful ceramic mugs very much. Even a simple order of hot chocolate is served with latte art. If you love Colombian coffee for its full body, smooth, and low acidic taste then this is your spot. Don’t expect a large selection of food but they serve some classic items like croissants, brownies and biscotti to go with the coffee.
