Super busy

Flour does great baked goods. I hear their sandwiches are good too, but I refuse to pay $8.50 for something I can make with zero effort in 5 mins at home. Their coffee (I've mainly had cappuccino) is drinkable, but not great. The cafe is ridiculously busy, basically always, and I tend to avoid... read more

If you are passing through Cambridge to visit MIT or Harvard, or simply walking down Mass Ave. towards Central Square stop in here and get something. Food is great - staff is friendly and helpful and they have great coffee as well. The owner is known for her cinnamon buns, so get one of those!

From all the hype, I was expecting phenomenal, but it was just ok. I had a coffee and a heated sticky bun which were better than Dunkies or Starbucks but not the wonder that I was expecting

We went for the homemade Oreos (they were sold out, get there early..apparently they're anazing!), but stayed for the cream pie! Was delicious, good coffee too :)

It should be empty because it was in the middle of summer when school is out and it was raining but no, it was crowded inside! The sticky bun does live up to its hype and grilled chicken sandwich was surprisingly good given that it seemed to be the most boring item on the sandwich menu. Be prepared to wait... More

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.
