Yum!

Just delicious and fun place. I had a tuna salad that was out of this world. Highly recommend for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea/coffee. I wish we had one in D.C.

As a food blogger had to check out Flour Bakery on my visit to Boston with my family! Location was busy with locals and tourists but service is fast and efficient. We enjoyed a latte, brownie, homemade oreo (my fave!), a chunky Lola cookie, and a coconut macaron. Love sampling an array of goodies! Everything looked fantastic and I recommend... More

This spot was a hopping place, even at 2:00pm for lunch on a weekday. However, the staff is extremely efficient and we were sitting down to our meal in no time. I had the curry tuna sandwich and it was the best tuna sandwich I've ever had! It was toasted to perfection and a perfect balance of flavors. At $8.50,... More

After touring the Boston Tea Party, this delectable restaurant was our pick me up! The macaroons held the sweet shavings of fresh coconuts, while the grilled vegetable sandwich was flavorful and filling. To top off this meal, I had a homemade rasberry lemonade. Tables for seating are meant to be shared making the atmosphere homey and quaint.

This bakery offers something delicious for everyone! An oatmeal cherry muffin was great and the kids loved the pastry choices. Even though it was crowded, the staff were friendly and helpful.

A former employee - now all grown up and a mom - told me about Flour several years ago. I visit every time I am in Boston. Everything is made right there - the entire range of baked good. You cannot go wrong with anything. I had the sugar brioche and breakfast sandwich. Brioche melts in your mouth. The sandwich... More

I had a blackberry muffin w my capucino. The muffin was tasty and just the right amount of fruit. The capuchino was just the right temperature, just like in Napoli. I look forward to another visit and trying another pastry.
