This branch of Flour is very convenient for me and I love stopping in to pick up a treat for dessert- I have come in a few times thinking I would stay for lunch but it has been too crowded to find a place to sit. The cupcakes are really great - and they have sticky buns that are so... More

Friendly staff and great food! Busy café with seating. The breakfast choices are great, good coffee, etc. Super place for a short meal - seating along the window is my preference.

We ate breakfast and lunch there on a recent trip to Boston, and both visits were great. For lunch we both had the roasted lamb sandwich, which was fantastic. The Boston Cream Pie was the highlight of the meal. It is a little different from the traditional, but nonetheless great. We went back for breakfast the next day having a... More

This place is truly awesome. From the moment you walk in till you leave. The displays of goodies are absolutely gorgeous. It is very hard not to buy one. They all look very good. All the servers or clerks at the counter take your order from a hand held tablet.Pretty cool ! The choice of sandwiches is huge and there... More

Great sandwiches! the roast chicken + avocado + jicama one is my favorite. It gets busy around lunch hour, but worth the wait!

I dined with a friend recently at Flour; he'd eaten there many times before, but this was my first time. And I can see what he was a repeat customer of the place. For lunch and dinner, Flour only serves sandwiches, salads, and a daily soup offering. But what incredible sandwiches they are! All are the same price, $7.95, and... More

We stopped by Flour Bakery & Cafe for a mid-afternoon coffee and enjoyed a great latte and an iced coffee, and a very peanut buttery cookie. I was still full from lunch or I would have liked to try the Boston cream pie which looked amazing. Really nice spot with lots of fantastic looking pastries.

Flour bakery is absolutely the best bakery I've ever been to. Yes, it is crowded in the mornings and sometimes hard to find seating; but the food and service easily make up for it. I found the employees to be extremely kind and patient. They have good recommendations and make the somewhat chaotic atmosphere while ordering feel more personal. The... More

Best donut (raspberry filled) that I've ever had. Excellent ham roll. Okay, everything was yummy. The coffee was good. The people were friendly. I will definitely be back the next time I'm in Boston.

We were looking for a good bakery yesterday since the concierge lounge which serves breakfast at the 5 star hotel we were staying at is closed on weekends, and we didn't want to have the dining breakfast which is both expensive and nothing special. We were walking on Stewart road and asked another hotel door man for a good bakery... More
