Flour is a local bakery/café chain that has been establishing a reputation for itself in Boston. While the coffee is good, the real reason to come here is for the cake (and the rest of the baked goods). Let’s face it, anywhere with the motto “make life sweeter... eat dessert first!” is going to get my vote!
Where the Washington St branch of Flour really scores is as a place to sit and eat your cake (who said you can't have your cake and eat it?). It's a bright, airy space, with the seating off to one side so you aren't bothered by the constant stream of takeaway customers, but still feel part of the cafe.
A note about the coffee: while there are better places to go for coffee, the coffee's pretty good and a cut above the average offering. As a place to go for coffee and cake it can't be beaten.
