This was recommended to us by a nearby hotel as an alternative breakfast location in a Sunday morning. We got there just after it opened and the queue was out the door. Everything is made fresh and it's all excellent but the ordering system and the way it's organised means that parts of your order can come at different times... More

You need to stop and wait for this bakery/coffee shop. The breakfasts are hot, filling and fresh. Hard to find a spot to sit and eat, and lots of people coming and going, which can make for a cold draft by the door.

Yes, the soups are yummy. And yes, the sandwiches are piled high with interesting and fresh ingredients. But DO NOT miss the sticky buns - hands down the best I've eaten in my 54 years! Wonderfully moist and buttery with just the right amount of sweetness and perfect "sticky" factor. You won't be disappointed.

I visited this bakery with a friend living in the area. It was busy on a Friday at 2:30 p.m. We ordered a number of different treats including a chocolate-chocolate cupcake, brownie, and apple dessert. The chocolate-chocolate cupcake was pedestrian and a bit dry. My local bakery has amazing chocolate-chocolate cupcakes so I have a high standard. The brownie was... More

Everything here is delicious. Cooked to order pastries and sandwiches and the atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. Great place to pick up snacks or sit and have a coffee.

So fresh, so creative, so tasty! I got the roasted chicken with avocado and jicama. I definitely recommend. Get it grilled.

It was close to our hotel and had wonderful choices. There were healthy items along with some sugar delights. Even when it was very busy they were very efficient yet warm, friendly and patient. I loved their tea on cold mornings!!

Had an absolutely amazing lunch at Flour today. I have had a couple of experiences with Flour bakery items but today had the stuffed bread special. It is a generous slice of a calzone and it is absolutely delicious. I also was treated to a mini tart that was extremely good and of course I have had the sticky buns.... More

This bakery is great for a lazy sunday morning. It is easily accessible from Copley Square. One word of caution, there is A LOT to choose from so take your time. It is all made from healthy and some organic ingredients.
