Went here on Independence Day, as nowhere else was open. Friend had granola with warm, going off, milk that had tasted like it had been left out since the day before. I have the breakfast sandwich, which was tasty but really was an ill conceived messy slop, that tool 20 mims to prepare. Coffee was made in a rush and... More

Came here for lunch during boston marathon weekend. Eventhough it was packed service was still good. Sandwich and pastry made me come back again the next day it was so good. I even bought the cookbook I liked it so much.

Came here for breakfast, had a sticky bun and hot chocolate. WOW the sticky bun was delicious, really wish I was back in Boston to try it again. Service was good too.

All I wanted was a plain salad. After waiting close to 10 minutes, I asked when I could get it. Was told another 20 minutes. Cancelled order as I feld this was unreasonable.

Stopped here for breakfast while on a business trip. My co-worker and I each had the famous sticky bun. Super fresh and tasty. Surprisingly not as sweet as you think it would be. My co-worker also indulged in a sugar brioche. I'll come again the next time I'm in Boston!

My husband and I visited Flour in Cambridge at lunchtime on a Friday, and as you'd expect, it was getting very busy. We waited in a short line which moved along quite quickly, ordering sticky buns, chocolate stout cupcakes and a few other items...all were excellent. They also have a good lunch menu with healthy and unique selections. There are... More

We got several different treats to take for desert for a family dinner. We cut them in to small bites so we could try a little of everything and it was all so very good. Had to make a second trip a few days later to try the sticky buns, my husband said it was the best pastry he has... More

My daughter and I stumbled upon Flour Bakery & Café a couple of years ago when we were in Boston. Well, we were hooked! My daughter now owns two of their cookbooks and we have dreamed of their scones since we first visited. My husband and I were in Boston for a few days, so it was a must that... More
