The BEST!

This was probably my best eating stop on my stay in Boston. Casual dining experience, but liked the way they serviced you.

At Boston for a week long convention and mostly of the food I ate, I remember the sticky buns from Flour bakery. The cinnamon cream brioche was the attraction on their website,but the sticky buns were the best. The bread was light and flaky and just sweet enough. The caramel was just short of runny, it didn't stick to your... More

Walked in, walked over to the bake goods......FLIES ALL OVER THE FOOD (and we know where flies like to hang out! ), AND THE EMPLOYEES DIDN'T DO A THING. Seriously, the manager couldn't get a piece of cheesecloth and cover the food! ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. Filthy......

Small bakery/sandwich shop, nothing special or fancy, but the desserts are to die for! Boston Cram Pie/Cake.....creamy layers, not mushy...with delicious chocolate top...so good! Not too much cream, not too much cakey layers, perfection!

We stopped by for breakfast our first morning in Boston. The French toast is incredibly yummy! I'm so glad Flour was walking distance from our hotel. It was a great start to our vacation!

Oh my, so good! Very moist and serving size is enough for 3. If you get the chance, get there early, they sell out fast!

Finally had the chance to visit Flour during a recent trip in the city. The sticky buns are just as heavenly as they are talked up to be. Honestly, one of the best pastries I have had in my entire life. Left me wanting more. My friends and I also tried the granola bar and raspberry bar. The granola bar... More

Each summer we come to Boston and one of our favorites is breakfast at Flour. Wow! Are they off their game. Sunday morning we arrive shortly after opening, Tried to order oatmeal. Not to be ready for at least 30 minutes. My husband can enjoy any baked item, but I am gluten free. One would expect a bakery of this... More

So went here twice on vacay because it was right by our hotel. The breakfast sandwich is good but Im not a huge fan of souffle style eggs and thats what is on the sandwich. The french toast was also lackluster and a bit dissapointing. The bread on the sandwich was amazing and my coffee was great. It is a... More

Of course I came here for the Boston cream pie, and I was not disappointed. It was perfect. And everyone in there was really nice!
