We waited in a long line at lunchtime and were glad that we did! The sandwiches were outstanding - served on excellent breads with fresh ingredients. The line moves quickly as they are very efficient, so don't be worried if there is a long line. We were able to find a place to sit, though seats are at a premium,... More

The chai is very good, spicy but good. Everything is delicious, but the sticky bun is so good you send a tear when it's over.

Not bad, not fantastic. Wifi works well. Coffee is "okay." Haven't yet tried the sandwiches. Not the best setup to really hang out for a while doing work, but also no terrible. Learning the options in this neighborhood, this one seems okay!

My favorite sandwich has chicken and avocado. My sister likes the roast beef sandwich. You have to get a cookie to finish. I like to come here for breakfast treats as well. Twice baked brioche is my favorite.

Had a really delicious breakfast but be prepared for a wait. We were lucky to be seated right away but 1.5 hour wait when we left. Food is a little out of the ordinary in a good way. Service so-so but overall great without the wait

Wow, I love this place! We had breakfast sandwiches one morning (which were very very good!). I also tried Brown Butter Rice Krispie bar, pumpkin muffin, caramel pecan roll, caramel pecan bread pudding, and a mixed fruit scone. Everything was delicious except for the scone. I was expecting it to be more berries or something instead of raisins. It was... More

Sometimes, the planets align and you end up somewhere only destiny could have directed you to. This place is "flour" for me. I'll start with the sandwiches - freaking amazing. My husband and I always split the roast beef, and one other sandwich (on a rotating schedule). The bread is made in shop, meat is cut in shop, other ingredients... More

Although there is always a lot of people in the line the service is very good and they are fast! If you don't have time to stay and sit down or there is not enough space you can ask for your order to go! I love all the pastries there, the carrot cake is amazing and the low fat chocolate... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
