A warm day in Boston and nothing was better than coffee and sticky buns from Flour eaten in the little playground across the street. The cafe was packed at 7:30 am but the line went fast. I spotted the seats across the street and it made the visit. The food and coffee was ok. Sticky buns were a little too... More

This is a local favorite and hangout in Boston's South End. Away from the Tremont St crowd and just across from a beautiful neighborhood garden, folks can eat leisurely outside or in. I recommend outside unless it's really cold. The pastries are fantastic and their salads and sandwiches are not too shabby either. What's really nice is that they don't... More

My son loved the sticky bun. My wife liked it. I found the bread pudding OK... so is the coffee. It is a very neat place and the quality is above most bakeries

We stopped here for lunch, and the sandwich I had was very good. It was chicken, brie, roasted peppers, and spinach. The bread was great, toasted, but not hard. The chicken was good very well, and it wasn't a very "heavy" sandwich. It tasted clean. I also had a slice of their Boston Cream Pie, and it was very good.... More

I was in boston for only two nights and on my first day we yelped for a place for a quick snack and we ended at Flour. I was delighted at the array of sweets and with the welcoming service . My choice of the milk chocolate hazel cookie was a delight. Additionally, the environment and the neighborhood was a... More

We were staying at the Seaport Hotel, and were put off the price of the breakfast. Flour had a lot of good reviews and was not too far. We ended up coming both mornings of our stay. The pastries were outstanding, especially the "crown" type, and the french toast was excellent. Get a seat outside if you can

This was the first place we ate at once we arrived in Boston. It was within walking distance to our airbnb, and came highly recommended by our host. We ordered the lox and cream cheese bagel sandwich and the infamous sticky bun. The food was very good, could have had a bit more salmon, but it was pretty delicious anyway.... More

Wandered into this place by chance, and could see why there is a lineup at the counter. Creative offerings of pastries, breads, sandwiches...you can't go wrong. Recommended

excellent bread and pastries, sandwiches, coffee...try a "sugar bun" for a unique treat - flaky yeast roll coated with sugar, made fresh on premises daily, and often sold out. Their fresh iced tea blends are wonderfully refreshing as well
