Oat Shop has opened in Davis Square (possibly in January). I was looking forward to checking it out; upon walking in there were some nice aromas. Looks like they have high-quality ingredients, with sweet and savory oat bowls which sounded interesting. I got a “power muffin” which I wasn’t expected to be wowed by, but it was really good.
I feared it might be overly-sweet and full of raisins (which I don’t dislike but can be off-putting) but it was not; it was dense, moist and a nice chocolate flavor, not too sweet, filling (so a good breakfast or snack option) and I think the signs said they were gluten-free for anyone looking for that kind of option.
I will definitely be back to try a savory oat bowl, and to try a breakfast cookie. Looks like it could be a nice non-chain, healthy and tasty option for breakfast and lunch.
