I read about this place in the Bostonian magazine "Best of" issue then saw the owner featured in a Harvard admission video. Tried to get to this location on foot but when we finally got there, they were closed unexpectedly due to a water main break in the area. I was determined to try their baked goods so we tried...

Stopped in here for breakfast before my conference started for the day w/ my husband- breakfast was amazing! We got a sticky bun to share and devoured it! We did order other items as well that were just as good & the coffee we got were very good too! I bought a packet of yummy granola for snaking on while... More

The baked goods are to die for (try the granola bar, almond croissant, sticky bun, chocolate chip cookie, triple chocolate mousse cake, banana bread, sour cream coffee cake, fresh fruit tart, oreo, or donut). The sandwiches are big and well worth the price (my favorites are the mozzarella, portobello melt, and BLT!). They get very busy in the morning and... More

I went here a few years ago before I started reviewing for Trip Advisor. We went to see the Kennedy Library and put in Flour bakery in our GPS and we found we were so close. I love this place! First went here after the owner did a throw down with Bobby Flay for her cinnamon rolls. They have great... More

I ordered the BLT and it was wonderful! The day I was there -- there was a huge crowd for lunch. A line out the door for over and hour. However, the line moved! The staff did an excellent job of keeping everyone moving along and orders going out the door. Very professional and very good food!

In recent trip to Boston, wife asked to go to Flour Bakery on Washington Street (South Boston) - she didn't have very good directions, so it was a bit of a hike. However, we ordered a sampling of the baked goods to share. Of the four different selections, each seemed better than the last. The raspberry filled donut was memorable.... More

We read that Flour Bakery had the best sticky buns so we had to go try it. It was just delightful with the great flavour and stickiness of the sticky buns. I would definitely eat them again since it was so good. I also had a lime lemonade with mint which was excellent. Highly recommend.

I visited with my husband and two children after we visited the Children's Museum. Everything was excellent, we each had a sandwich (him the lamb and feta and I had the turkey with cheese and homemade pickles that were incredible!) and the kids had grilled cheese. The ordering system was a bit confusing and created really long waits. After I... More

We stopped in the other day for lunch. We had salads - I had the Quinoa salad, my daughter had the Kale salad and my husband had a simple tossed salad. The ingredients were fresh on both and the dressing (particularly the dressing on the Quinoa salad) was to die for! We had oreo cookies and a slice of carrot... More
