These are great multipurpose bakery cafes. Great breads and pastries to eat or go . Sticky buns are a favorite, but everything is good. Also great eat in soups salads sandwiches.

Ok but not great. All the buzz, nothing's bad, nothing's wonderful. Pastry is competent, coffee is adequate, lines always long, food unambitious, pricing pushes boundaries Zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Stopped in to Flour for breakfast since it’s close to South Station T stop. Had a sticky bun, pop tart, jasmine green tea and coffee- all were great. Monday morning wasn’t too busy, comfortable seating.

This was an amazing option for us for breakfast! So many things to choose from (impossible to choose a sad yogurt, which was actually available). We gave ourselves the opportunity to indulge and chose many delicious treats both salted and sweet. We all loved it!...More
