Bakery and cafe

Really more of an extended coffee shop with sandwiches, coffee and pretty good atmosphere. We went for Breakfast. Not much real breakfast stuff, but OK coffee (I'm from Seattle) and pastries. I'd go back, for sure.

Although becoming a chain, spreading around the Boston area, this bakery is definitely keeping it's high rank as one of the few amazing high quality bakeries and coffee shops. Not only smart pastries but also perfect sandwiches. The Cambridge spot is usually crowded with MIT students, hard to find a chair.

I come here relatively frequently because I live nearby, but I would definitely got out of my way to come here. The homemade Oreos are life changing! Everything else pales in comparison.

Everything freshly baked! Great menu! Would definitely go back! The pastries were perfect. It was difficult to make a choice.

I don't have Flour along my usual morning commute but everyonce in a while I'm in the MIT area. When that happily occurs, I love to stop in at Flour and buy way too much. They have great coffee, my supposed main reason for stopping, but the pastries and breads are absolutely irresistible. The lime-ginger scone, twice-baked brioche, and the... More

Yummy food for all meals. Great macaroons in town that go perfect with a latte. It does get a bit crowded but can take out all. Enjoy …

Flour is a great place to enjoy la casual lunch - be aware that you stand on line to order. Quick easy service - the large staff make your sandwich or salad to order. The menu is handwritten in chalk on chalk boards. Be sure to check specials listed on the pillar in center. Their sandwiches can't be beat. Flavorful,... More

Great food, great drinks. Always busy - expect queues all day. The shortest I had to wait on the tree occasions I visited was about 7 minutes. Competition for seating is high. My recommendation to the establishment is to try to streamline your queuing system so that people do not have to wait for long.

I had a breakfast sandwich and coffee on Thanksgiving weekend at Flour on Mass Ave in Cambridge - my first time there - and I pledged that next time I go, I will save room for a muffin, cream-filled doughnut or sticky bun. The assortment of baked goods in their case is remarkable and all looked absolutely delicious! Maybe some... More
