This store closed permanently and with little notice. It was a great store and addition to the Eagle River business community. It would be wonderful to have something similar go in the store.

I'm extremely upset that the Flour Sack is closing down. They had the best raspberry grilled cheese sandwiches, and a wide selection of baking tools and munchies for the younger children in my family.

Come in for the sandwiches, but don't leave without some ingredients to cook with at home. They have a great selection of seasonings and spices in addition to decorations for cakes and other desserts. Fun seasonal candy can also be found here.

The woman was irritated and seemed to have great difficulty in explaining this clearly, but once I understood, I asked for an iced coffee instead, which she proceeded to create with so much cream in it, it turned completely white. She then handed it to me: "Here." Felt... More

Love this place but be aware that they are no longer serving lunch effective 5/10/14. Still lots of good things to shop for, but it's the lunches that got me in there to shop.

My wife wanted to drive up from Rhinelander to get a few items that she knew they had. As we entered the store my wife suggested that we eat lunch there. I agreed. The sandwich on special was the Kinda like Thanksgiving Dinner sandwich. Its turkey topped with provolone cheese, cranberry jelly and then lightly grilled on Cranberry Walnut bread.... More

Went here on our way out of town. Wished I would have stopped sooner. They have neat, unique items and things I will definately try the next time I'm in eagle river. Had a nice pumpkin spice soy latte.

I love the Flour Sack for lunch when I'm in the Northwoods! They have a very nice little restaurant in the back of the store. I have to have the "Kinda like Thanksgiving Dinner" sandwich, it's great! but so is everything on the menu and don't miss out of the soup of the day! The staff is great, very friendly... More

Wow do not waste your time with this company. I honestly believe the reviewers that are giving it a high rating must be fake. I went to order flour from this company. I selected my product, and selected the shipping option online which stated $14.95 for shipping which seemed high but i was fine with. I placed my order, got... More

My teen-age son, mother-in-law, aunt, and I had lunch in the cafe in the back of the store during the week of the 4th of July. I had a salad, which was made from quality mixed greens (no iceberg lettuce) and it came with my choice of a muffin. Everyone in our party loved the food--even my 18 y/o son.... More
