Three of us visited for drinks. Everyone loved what they got. Mine was a hot chocolate, which was fantastic. Very rich and lots of calories but worth it!

There was along queue, but the staff is very efficiently so you will not have to wait that long. The different dishes we tried all tasted very well. The coffee is relatively good, but I had expected a somewhat better one.

I had a roast chicken with brie and caramelised onion sandwich and a sticky sticky bun. The food was delicious but a bit expensive for the amount of food included.

Stopped in for coffee and breakfast. Not sure what I was expecting, but disappointed. I had steel cut oats with seasonal fruit and almonds. Plenty of almonds but the seasonal fruit were blueberries that were not fresh, but rather looked like they came out of a jar along with syrup. In addition, not a healthy serving of fruit, but rather... More

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!
