I landed in Boston later than planned and wanted a quick, but healthy/tasty dinner when I got to Boston. I tried Flour Bakery and Cafe which was open until 8pm and was not disappointed. Traditional sandwich combos with a fun little twist. I did roast beef with horseradish sauce and it had crunchy onions - like the ones on a... More

This is a great restaurant if you are looking for a sandwich place for lunch and a sweet treat for dessert! The roast beef sandwich was amazing however the chicken caesar salad that I opted for one day had a lot of dressing, which next time I would ask for on the side. I forgot it had garbanzo beans and...

A cool and modern place for breakfast. So many things on offer from oats, french toast, to a bacon and egg sandwich roll. Not the cheapest for breakfast but still worth it as it was so tasty and great coffee too!

Loved the granola and steel cut oats so much, we had to come back for another breakfast, even though we were only in town for a couple of days. Good coffee. Relaxed atmosphere. Very friendly, efficient staff.

We walked over from our hotel and there was a long line out to the door. We had latte and some carmel rolls and a bluebery muffin. All very good.

This place operates like a well run hive during the busy lunch hour. They are very efficient and have never gotten my order wrong which I appreciate when time is limited! I usually get gluten free sandwiches and the GF foccacia bread they have is SO good. The first time I ordered I had to bring it back and clarify... More

Actually, everything I have had at Flour has been wonderful. I love their black bean soup - a tad spicy and delish! Even when the line is long, they have a very efficient process so you don't have to wait too long. Convenient spot. Staff is always super nice. They have an awesome Japanese green tea, too.

The perfect kind of place we search for as we travel: locally sourced, fresh ingredients, casual atmosphere and reasonably priced. All of the above! We had a sweet potato sandwich and a mustard green salad, both were awesome. See menu for all ingredients. Coconut cream pie for dessert. Best we ever had. Probably on our top ten list and we...
