Patrick Pereira


Patrick grew up in Malden, MA and graduated from Malden High School before moving to New York City to attend NYU and pursue a career in real estate. Just a year into his studies at NYU, Patrick decided to transfer to Boston University, where he then began to study hospitality. At BU, he found his passion for the business and almost instantly knew this was the industry he wanted to be in. 

In 2020, he took over the original Tasty on the Hill from his father and rebranded in the Summer of 2021 to create a new and comfortable environment for his guests in a trendy and minimalist neighborhood cafe right outside of Tufts University. Patrick wants his customers to be blown away by the cafe’s architectural design from the shiny black porcelain tile floors to his eye-catching quartz countertop which he often refers to as “white princess.”

Patrick’s love for people and coffee is what made him fall in love with the industry. He loves getting to know his customers and hopes to be known as someone who you can come in and talk to about absolutely anything. 

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, going for walks around the Charles River, and never says no for a day out on Newbury. But his favorite thing to do is sneak in spontaneous coffee shop visits in Boston.
