“Great bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

So, i've been very excited to visit, since imown the book, have tryed baking a couple of things, and LOVE them! The banana bread at the store is to die for, they have an excellent variety of tea, on the down side, we went on weekend and it was packed, hard to sit down an enjoy it, can only imagine during the week tough.

“Love their double chocolate cookies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Flour is a bakery and sandwich shop. I've been to the Fort Point location as well as the South End. It is usually crowded with a long line for service, but it goes quickly. We've had some sandwiches there also and the breakfast pizza which were all good. They have seating inside and outside, but sometimes it is tough to get a table.

“A hidden gem near the convention center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

What a find! We were staying downtown at a hotel near the trade center and didn't want to pay the exorbitant hotel brunch price, so we started looking around. The bakery is tucked away on a side street, but totally worth looking for. The atmosphere is warm and friendly--we had fun sharing a community table and chatting with strangers, the staff is nice, and the food is outstanding! So many tasty options, including a perfect lox sandwich. I only wish they had locations in the burbs.

Really good breakfast/lunch place with a great range of menu items, it gets very busy though but the line up moves quickly.
