I stopped in while walking by. What a great roast beef sandwich. Good location near a South Station. Very fresh ingredients, will definitely go back.

What a find. This was across the street from our hotel. Excellent quinoa salad, veggie panini, iced tea, hot coffee. It's busy and you have to scout for a table but it is very, very good.

Staying right around the corner at the Loews Hotel and walked by this bakery on the way to the T otherwise we never would have know it existed. Went back today for a late breakfast and were lucky enough to get the last sticky bun. WOW, that was good stuff. They also had the best hot chocolate I've ever had.... More

So, just before the blizzard hit, we went with a Bostonian friend to pick up a special treat for my wife. We decided to get some dessert and coffee. My wife got a coconut cream pie slice, and I got the "sticky-bun bread pudding." My bread pudding was light and airy. I didn't know bread pudding COULD be light and... More

We've been here twice for a morning winter snack. Great cheddar scones and hot beverages. Always busy but we always manage to get a table.

Had one afternoon to spend in downtown Boston and ended up to Flour on a Sunday. The place only has 15 seats and it was packed all the time with people on the line for take away. My company had a gluten free sandwich and she really liked it. Mine was regular, also really fresh. The place has a nice... More

Visited Flour recently and was really pleased with this quality bakery. The staff is extremely friendly and on this particularly busy snowy day incredibly efficient in keeping up with the pace. We had a very tasty hot chocolate and coffee to go with a chocolate chip cookie (amazing) and a piece of Boston Cream Cake (decadent). We sat and took... More

Love the energy here, it really feels like this huge staff is making the effort to be no.1, and they probably on the top list of best place for pastries, coffees, sandwiches and cakes around Boston, together with Tatte.
