Homemade, Fresh, Delicious!

We were lucky that our hotel was right near Flour in the Seaport district. All of their breads were homemade, beautiful and delicious! The coffee cake and also the homemade french toast was to die for! On a rainy day their hot mulled cider was a treat too. Lots of families came in to buy loaves... read more

Me and my husband went to flour for lunch and just left the cafe. I got Greek salad and he got chicken sandwich. Both of our meals were out of this world. I wish they have another spot around the dedham area so we could visit them more often, Keep up the good work Flour!

I enjoyed the desserts and pastries more than my salad. It was a small and bustling place. Different items to choose from every day.

We finally asked around and someone suggested Flour so we figured we... More

Came here for a quick lunch before checking out the city. The service was super polite and speedy and the food was delicious. It is difficult to pull off a decent gluten free bread, but they do it here.

The curried tuna came with tomatoes and lettuce on toasted bread. The turkey and chutney sandwich was so fresh and flavorful. The have a wonderful assortment of exotic loose-leaf teas and locally produced sodas.... More

As a BC alum, I lived in Boston for four years and ate at countless places in those four years. As an alum, my visits are sporadic and short on time but I always make time for lunch at Flour. The sandwiches are so fresh and light yet filling. I recommend the smoked turkey and cranberry. I have to buy... More

This hard to find location is close to the Children's Museum. Scones, cookies, sandwiches all of which were excellent if maybe a little pricey.

Ate both breakfast & lunch here. Fabulous desserts & wonderful sandwiches! Coffee was great too! My husband had a raspberry "pop tart" breakfast item that he absolutely adored--and he isn't even a raspberry fan!
