Visited on a Saturday morning at 10. Service was pretty quick and friendly. We had the egg sandwich, which I would highly recommend. Pastries look amazing. Would love to come back to try more.

I went here for the first time this week for lunch. Everyone seems to rave about it. I can agree the food is delicious but their set up is certainly lacking. We apparently hit it up during lunch and of course it was slammed, you walk in and immediately have a large menu on the left side of you, which... More

On a visit to Boston, I wandered in for a breakfast treat. I purchased a sticky bun (delicious) and a berry muffin top (even more delicious), and some cold mint tea. It was actually too much for me to eat, the sticky bun was pretty large! I would visit again if I were back in Boston and in the area.

Long line mid week at lunch, but it moved quickly. The soup, sandwiches, and baked goods were fresh and delicious.

We went around 9am on a Saturday morning. The place was packed but we found a place to sit. You order at the counter. Lots of yummy breakfast options and service was fast. Not a place to linger during breakfast rush, but definitely worth going.

we had a blast here. my husband, myself and our two little boys took an afternoon break from a busy day of pounding-pavement and site-seeing here. We had tea, the Boston Cream Pie (which is really a ridicuously amazing layer cake version), and their homemade oreo. It was friendly, comfortable, DELICIOUS, high quality and just a really really really nice... More

There were probably 20 people ahead of us but we were at the counter in just minutes. We gave our order to the gentleman, then grabbed a table. Our name was called when our order was ready and boy, it was good! We got to try our first, original, Boston sticky bun, something my husband had always wanted to do...out... More

Went there our first morning in Boston based on the many rave reviews we had seen. There is a huge variety of treats and the aroma when you step inside is amazing. Went specifically for one of their sticky buns. It was not quite a large as I expected. The pecans seemed a bit old in taste. The bun itself... More

My wife and I took a taxi to Flour Bakery last Sunday right after noon. Although there was a line, it was less than 10 customers deep and we quickly place our orders of French toast for her and a lamb sandwich for me. The food was called up within 10 minutes and a nearby table was easy to find.... More
