Great Sandwiches & Pastries

We had lunch one day and treats the next on this trip to Boston. Our sandwiches were fresh and flavorful, just very large. Wish we had shared one, it is always so tempting to try to eat the whole thing in one sitting. So the second halves became dinner later. My daughter loved the pastries so... read more

I've heard people rave about Flour and it was just ok. Do not go for breakfast as it's incredibly overpriced. The lunch sandwiches are solid and I would recommend them but they didn't blow me away like some people have said.

We stayed across the street from Flour Bakery and it became our "go-to" meeting place. Great coffee and sweet rolls - and a great way to start the morning.

Very small space but the food is very good. Better to grab and go and enjoy in a nearby park. Guess it also depends on the time of day but we were there for brunch.

We have eaten at two different flour locations on two different visits to Boston. The flavors they use are amazing. This morning I had french toast made from foccacia bread. It was one of the most delicious flavors and topped with apple butter. This is a little pricey but not too pricey. If you are looking for great flavors, fun... More

Their Vegan low-fat chocolate cupcakes are the best! They definitely don't taste like they're low fat. I try to stop in on Friday afternoons after work, but they always seem to be out. Word to the wise, go early or call in! Same with the sticky buns which seems to be their specialty. Overall, a great place. I haven't tried... More

Flour bakery was just around the corner from our holiday apartment and it was the nicest bakery we tried in Boston (tried the Modern pastry shop and a few others). We tried the following when we were there: Sugared brioche bun, the sticky bun, vegan chocolate muffin, vegan spiced apple muffin and sweet brioche roll (we went there every other... More

Because of a badly sprained ankle, used it nearly exclusively for six days. Great sandwiches, salads, chili, bread and pastries. Highly recommended!
