Every day, our cafes bustle with guests eager to experience everything we have to offer, and our Cafe Head Chefs play an important role within our cafes. Our Cafe Head Chefs manage the fast-paced energy and high volume in the café, by working with the Sous Chef to oversee all kitchen operations. The Cafe Head Chef leads and inspires the café savory kitchen team to exceed our guest's expectations at every opportunity by creating amazing dishes from scratch while upholding the execution of Tatte's service and product standards. The Cafe Head Chef also embodies the passion we have for our savory team members (prep cooks, line cooks, and dishwashers) by proactively developing them as a team and as individual culinary professionals.

We offer competitive pay (typically Cafe Head Chef pay ranges from $65k-$75k, depending on experience), English/Spanish classes, hands on training and classroom training, free drinks and meals, health/dental/vision insurance, 401K benefits (with a vesting match), free EAP services, and more. In terms of scheduling, we strive to provide predictable schedules with a mix of shifts so that you can enjoy life outside of work. No late nights or regularly long hours. Tatte also believes in fostering an environment of learning and growth and we are committed to our team member's development.

Your recipe for success:

  • Minimum of 2-3 years of progressive culinary/kitchen management experience, depending upon formal degree or training within a high-volume sophisticated restaurant operation.
  • Proven passion for culinary excellence and exceeding guest expectations.
  • Love amazing food and people.
