“Brilliant bakery in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Flour bakery was just around the corner from our holiday apartment and it was the nicest bakery we tried in Boston (tried the Modern pastry shop and a few others).
We tried the following when we were there: Sugared brioche bun, the sticky bun, vegan chocolate muffin, vegan spiced apple muffin and sweet brioche roll (we went there every other day....)
Everything we tried was lovely. We didn't partake of sandwiches but the bakery had an excellent array of fillings. It also had a great choice of different types of cake - all of which seemed to sell out by the end of the day.
The coffee was one of the better coffees I had in Boston which I could drink from a mug instead of the usual paper cup (which seems to be the norm). I would heartily recommend this bakery.

“Wish it was in my city....”

Because of a badly sprained ankle, used it nearly exclusively for six days. Great sandwiches, salads, chili, bread and pastries. Highly recommended!

“Don't miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Fresh bakery items that will not disappoint. We planned on having breakfast one morning, but we liked it so much, we came back twice. The granola is wonderfully tasty, and fresh berries on the steel-cut oatmeal gave it an yummy, autumnal touch. Great coffee and smiley, friendly service;
