We used trip advisor and found Flour Bakery our first day in Cambridge. We loved the menu, so many options- especially for our vegetarian and our gluten free kids. We had the roasted broccoli sandwich on gluten free bread that was so delicious it was like cake. My husband had a grilled artichoke sandwich that he loved. We had another... More

Amazing breakfast egg sandwich. I ordered the vegetarian version with egg and avocado, super good! They also put some mustard sauce that was a great pairing. The honey or sweet buns didn't liked so much. Btw this place is packed on Sunday.

Was delighted to find this right opposite MIT museum. Earlier in the week we had a wonderful breakfast in the Back Bay branch so were expecting great things. Sandwiches were very good but the tea was disappointing - just the usual teabag in hot water that passes for tea rather than the pot of loose leaf tea I was served... More

I have loved this place since the owner was on Throw Down with her sticky buns, and it continues to offer high quality great tasting food. Every sandwich I have tried is tasty, particularly the roast beef. Breakfast sandwich is tasty and creative with some greens added...almost makes it healthy. And my kids love the pastries and desserts. Go here!

This place has one of the best breakfasts in Cambridge. All their menu items sound so good. But you can totally ask the staff for recommendations like I did and they were very friendly about it. The place was very full and still the wait wasn't long do that was a plus. Would definitely recommend the egg sandwich, the sticky... More

This outpost of Joanne Chang's bakery is always hoppin' but the line moves fast and the sandwiches and cookies make what wait well worth it.

The last time we were at Flour in Back Bay (several months ago), I happened upon a solitary coigne aman in the pastry case. It was light, delicate, intricate, beautiful, and had a burnt sugar bottom. So, when we returned this June I made a point of getting a special half-dozen order of coigne aman, since they are not always... More

My office had pastries delivered to the office. The pecan rolls were THE BEST I have ever eaten! You could taste the butter. Amazing! The banana bread looked like home made, I had to back away from the table so my coworkers could get some.....I think I gained 10 pounds the butter brown sugar topping smothered with pecans! Just writing... More

I had a delicious curried tuna salad. You can order any sandwich in a slad form. Clever. Counter help less than helpful. Did not include my pastry order. A little too much attitude there.
