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

Our hotel was only a few blocks away, so we had breakfast at the Flour Bakery for 3 mornings in a row. We sampled some of their baked goods, and they were all absolutely delicious.

If you are watching your weight you probably don't want to go here. Well you could get the quinoa and spinach and tofu salad, it's actually really yummy, but that is about it. Go when you want to splurge, eat homemade oreos and sticky buns, that is the good stuff. Sandwiches are delish and big, Breakfast Sandwich is the bomb... More

We ordered the chicken sandwich and a vanilla berry muffin. The muffin was excellent in taste and texture. The sandwich was good but not great. The biggest issue we had with the flour bakery was the wait time for the sandwich. It was around 20 minutes before we got the sandwich.
