This place is essentially an upscale Panera with lots of choice, variety, and creativity imbued into every sandwich or treat you get. Very reasonably priced for the high quality food you will be served. Sort of busy and hectic in there (and this was just a Sunday!) but I'd say definitely worth it. Highly recommended.

Visiting from Chicago, my husband and I needed a break from our sight-seeing adventures. We stopped in for some sweet treats at Flour Bakery, and they delivered just that! The employee we encountered was extremely friendly and patient as he helped educate us about the local favorites. I went with the sticky bun. It was full of flavor and had... More

In many restaurants I order Greek salad as an easy veg item that is reliably good. Here they add chicken. To be fair it is on the menu - if I had read the menu I would have seen it. I've never heard of a Greek salad being made this way so did not pay attention till the dish came.... More

This was the final stop on what seemed to be a never ending food tour of Boston. We came in for a late breakfast. All of the pastries we ordered were great especially the awesome sticky buns. There were at least six other items in the bakery case that I would have ordered if I had not already over indulged... More

We went to flour for a cheeky sugary brunch. We had been visiting patisseries looking for a really good one in Boston and hadn't found it until we came to Flour. I think there are 4 branches across the city, all of which i would have gone to! We had coffee and cake - i had a gluten free meringue... More

First of all, Flour has the best Sticky Buns ever. I go out of my way to get them when I crave them! I have never had anything there that wasn't good. Baked goods and sandwiches are all first quality.

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.
