This is a very busy and fast moving breakfast cafe, where one orders at the counter. We found the choices for breakfast suited us v well. Bear in mind that on weekends it doesn't open until 8am.

As a carb addict this is my church - a busy, lively home to freshly-prepared breakfasty, bready awesomeness. I went twice and could have basically eaten every meal there had I been allowed! You don't want to be in a hurry though, it gets super-crowded.

We went to this restaurant a couple of times. I can highly recommend the homemade sandwiches and the salads. The spiced apple cake is also recommended! The queues can get long at times but we never had to wait long to be served and you can pay using a card if you want to. There is also complimentary water whilst... More

Before a co-worker of mine and I headed up to Boston from NYC, I Googled "Best Sandwiches in Boston" and up came Flour Bakery and so I decided to use them to cater four meetings in 2 days. They were phenomenal. I dealt with Josh who organized everything for me and the logistics were tricky. The food was so tasty... More

On a 4 night trip to Boston in February, we visited Flour Bakery for breakfast on the recommendations from TripAdvisor, and we were not disappointed. We arrived at around 8.30am for our first visit, and a good sign was that it was full of local people on their way to work or meeting friends. And it's easy to see why... More

Wow! Found this place by accident. We had just arrived in Boston and I was looking for a bakery with gluten free options. This place is amazing! My husband had the egg and bacon sandwich served on the softest yummy roll. I had the gluten free chocolate muffin and almond macaron. Both were so amazing. I had to try something... More

Finally traveling with my wife again and we are in Boston!! It was snowing on our first morning, so we dipped in here for some warm food. The place was packed, but we grabbed a table with 5 mins of ordering. Service was fast and the food was good-I had the breakfast sandwich, my wife got the roasted salmon sandwich,... 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.
