I love this place, they have the best pastries in the area. My favorite is the coconut cream pie, but again I have yet to get something from here I don't like. The staff is really friendly and they try to expedite things as quickly for you as they can. You might have to wait at times since a lot... More

I go to Flour once every few months. The coffee is steaming and the place smells of fresher baked good. The sandwiches are wonderful but if you do not want a sandwich the other pastries offered make for a hard choice . The scones a good, the quiches are good the muffins are good etc. !!

… with the french toast. A light batter with a slight crunch on the edges - texture and flavor, PLUS they serve Fazenda Coffee, one of the few local gems among local roasters - puts that gawd awful Stmptown to shame. The pastries are amazingly creative and...

Good funky and interesting options - but often so crowded that you have to wait a bit. Also a bit pricey.

We enjoy lunch at Flour Bakery. Sandwiches and interesting pastry for dessert make a great combo. Fun places to go in the Seaport area and in Cambridge.

We were there for breakfast. Excellent baked goods, especially the sticky buns! The breakfast egg sandwich was also delicious, as was the coffee.

It's so busy that ordering is a little confusing, but worth it. I will definitely be back. I wouldn't eat there unless I happened to be doing something in the area.

One of my favorite spots for lunch. The sandwiches don't come cheap, but they are worth it. The options are unique and delicious. The salads are so-so, but the baked goods more than make up for that (I mean who needs healthy options when there are homemade oreos that melt in your mouth!). Gets very busy, but most times the...

Fantastic place for baked goods that exceed expectations as well as a variety of delicious sandwiches. Don't forget the cappuccino while waiting with a slice of banana bread!
