Pastries are my favorite breakfast, so the entire Flour chain is five star for me. I'm not talking about muffins and quick breads (though those are good too), it's things that are time-consuming for the home baker: yeast breads, brioche, croissants, kouign amann (which they...More

We ate at another Flour Bakery when we stayed in Boston at the first part of our trip and came here for our last night in town. Just a fan of the fresh sandwiches and pastries here. Everything we tried was great!

Flour is, hands down, a bakery legend in Boston! I've eaten many of their baked goods over the years. But this was my first time getting lunch. The line was super long and I expected to wait forever. I was so so wrong! They have...More

Whether you are looking for a sandwich, salad, or pastry, it is likely to be DELICIOUS!!! My favorites: roasted chicken or roast beef sandwich, sticky bun (DEFINITE MUST), fresh fruit tart, and raspberry meringue clouds. The coffee, hot chocolate, and raspberry seltzer are also great....More
