The smell of freshly baked bread will keep you coming back!

We were just walking around near our hotel and we spotted this place. The food looked so delicious, the bread smelled so good so we decided to come back for breakfast.

We searched for a nice spot to have breakfast, where we would have other options except sandwich with cheese and meat. The flour cafe, in addition to the very lively atmosphere, offered various options (in addition to the 'regular' sandwiches). I also had a surprisingly tasty Gazpacho sup. The coffee was descent as well.

First went to Flour Bakery last year for lunch and had an amazing quinoa and tofu salad! I recently went to Flour during a food tour of Boston. Everything looked so amazing! We ended up bringing home some pecan sticky buns and they were to die for! A must stop bakery in Boston.

I ordered a chunky lulu cookie and a fruit tart. They were very delicious. There are so many choices to choose from! I feel that nobody can go wrong with ordering any of those baked goods. Many people were there enjoying their food. The atmosphere was nice and neat. I would come back again.. maybe to try out for its... More

Terrific baked goods, sandwiches and salads. Okay, really amazing baked goods - from cookies to bread to homemade oreos - this is the place. Try the house raspberry seltzer. I have been countless times to all of the locations and

This was our first visit to Flour. We tried multiple pastries and the quinoa salad. Everything was absolutely fantastic. Ask the staff for a recommendation- they really know their stuff and were right on. Don't count on having a place to sit, and the line to order was almost out the door-but it's worth it :)

Their bread, pastries etc are very good, clearly better than average in Boston. They have two branches, one in Cambridge and one in the South End. The one in Cambridge is more spacious and better for brunching. I can't say much about the food because I usually go there to buy bread and pastries.
