Wow! Incredibly long lines at lunch and you know what? Efficient and effective workers whipped everyone through in no time at all. I got the smoked turkey 9 (w/o nuts) cheddar, green grape mostarda, tarragon mayo, multigrain. So incredibly yummy and unique. My son got a grilled cheese. Not sure what kind of cheese, but he was not a fan.... More

I frequent Flour for lunch since it's close to my office. I love the grilled roast chicken sandwich as well as the side mixed greens salad which can be served plain without other veggies. Their desserts are to die for, with a selection that will make your head spin. The only reason I gave this place 4 stars is the... More

I have a sweet tooth and love sandwiches, so this is a must stop for me every time I visit Bean Town. I like the Flour on Farnsworth best b/c it's not insanely packed like the others usually are.

We really enjoyed our breakfast at Flour. As out of towners we didn't know what to expect, but we are so glad we went there! It was a very warm morning so the iced coffee hit the spot. The egg sandwiches were hearty and delicious. The biggest problem was choosing a breakfast treat. Everything looked so good. Finally decided on... More

forget that famous bakery in the north end-this place has INSANE pastries. I am unlucky enough to work in the area, and it's hard to stay away!

I am giving Flour 4 stars because they don't have very many vegan options. I was there on Sunday morning, and the oatmeal was already cooked with whole milk (dairy), and they were out of granola. And there were 2 vegan pastries.They only have soy milk for coffee/tea, no almond or cashew or other options. If one is not vegan,... More

If you like things baked, breaded, leaven, muffined, floured, sandwiched or paninied this is it. Imagine an actually good Panera. Awesome breakfast sandwich concepts. Well balanced options for salads and lunch sandwiches. Great pastries; the muffin we had was more blueberries than muffin. They had some very nice gluten- and allergen-free choices as well. All things being equal, the price... More

We enjoyed the food here, the sandwiches were great, and the cookies weren't bad either. It's hard to tell if they were overpriced or not, we paid about $10 per sandwich -- probably can't do much better than that unless you go with fast food...

A friend and I were recently craving a “little” afternoon sweet treat and came across Flour Bakery & Café on Farnsworth Street in the Seaport District of Boston. What a find! There were almost too many treats to choose from. I went with the Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie ($2), which was out of this world. My girlfriend chose a Mini... More

Staying in Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront

Neighborhood Profile
Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning deck overlooking the water. In the summer time there are Friday music concerts on the deck of the museum. Nearby, there are many green spaces to enjoy.
