Flour offers very healthy food! We had half sandwich and soup of the day. It was very healthy and delicious. Very cute place also. They use Kosher salt also.

I have been to 3 of the 4 Flour locations and would definitely go back. It's always been packed, so if you're taking out you should call ahead. My favorite is the lamb sandwich and they always have good quiche and stuffed breads. I love their chocolate hazelnut cookie.. mmmmm! Recently tried their greek salad and potato leek soup and...

Yes, there are several outposts now and Joanne Chang has multiple cookbooks, but it's still the best. Yes, it can be very crowded (lunch during the week) and the line doesn't move that fast, but it's still the best. Yes, it's very difficult to find a seat, but it's still the best. You get the idea, there are some challenges... More

No problem, They offered to platter them up at no extra charged which worked out great as far as carrying and handling. We got back... More

Wish I had gone there my first day in Boston instead of my last. Best buns and pastries I've had in a long time. I know this place is hyped a lot and was prepared for my expectation to be dashed but not to be. Highly recommend this spot

Nice and cool staff and one of the few places to have a light, balanced and healthy choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Great bakery items. If you like a cookie, the Lola is yummy! There's a great story about the creator/owner of this bakery, Joann Chang. Well worth the stop.

Visited the one at Washington St. YES! YES! YES! Sticky bun bread pudding but literally every sticky bun and every bread pudding I ever ate to horrible, pathetic shame. Meringue cloud was a super cool space-like food that pleasantly crumbled all over my clothes and satisfied my plethora of sweet teeth. Ate at Myers and Chang for dinner and then... More

A friend and I stopped by this bakery after it came up on every review of places to visit in Boston. We each tried two different desserts because one each just wasn't enough. The vegan chocolate sandwich cookies, apple cinnamon cake, triple chocolate cookies, and lemon raspberry tart were all delicious! Not too expensive either. They also server lunch but... More
