Delicous Food, but little seating area

The food here was great. The ordering system can be confusing for newcomers during a busy time though. The items are a bit pricy, but not too bad. The downside is that there is very little seating, so you might not be able to eat your snack in the café. Thankfully, if the weather is nice there are... read more

This is like a better version of Panera in Boston. It is set up similarly. The pastries are to die for! I had the sticky buns. We also had one of their breakfast sandwiches which was outstanding as well. I wish there was a place like this back home. I would eat there all the time. Quick and convenient.

Great place to grab a quick bite after long day of sight seeing. Hubby had Blt and we each had a piece of delicious chocolate pie. Yum!

Stopped here for a quick lunch and got a delicious chicken and Brie panini and an excellent Americano. The vibe in here is very hip and fun. Pastries looked amazing but I didn't get any, next time!!

This is a place to go alone or with a group for breakfast or lunch. Everyone will be happy. The lemon Ginger Scone, French Toast and hot chocolate are wonderful. Pecan roll (sticky bun) is great too. Ask for them to be heated. So nice!

We were taking a walk from the Renaissance Waterfront in the Seaport District, and looking for breakfast. We hit "Nearby" on Trip Advisor, and bingo, we were near Flour. Very casual, you walk up to order, like Starbucks, then await your order. Seating inside and outside. The breakfast sandwich was excellent! They also had a tempting small breakfast pizza and...

Bar none the best Boston cream pie! Omni Parker House who invented the Boston cream pie is a close second. For $8.51 you get a nice serving of Pie and a glass of Soy milk. $8.50 gets you a small circular pie (about half size of Flour Bakery) at the Omni house with no drink. The Flour Bakery also has...

I found this after a recent trip to the ICA. I was extremely impressed by the friendly service and my gluten free roast beef sandwich was delicious. Really good horseradish sauce!

Stopped off for breakfast and had the egg and bacon sandwich. Really good and at last a decent cup of tea.
