“Lemon tarts and great sandwiches, salads”

Loooovvvvve the lemon tarts. The lemon and raspberry dessert is awesome as well. Any sandwich is great here, very busy I usually go off peak hours.

“Pretty fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We stopped by mid-day on a Friday; the line was almost out the door and there were a lot of happy people at the tables. The staff there is efficient, so the long line was quick and we were enjoying Boston cream pie, brownies and coffee in no time. They have a large selection of baked goods, as well as a long sandwich list. I'll be back to try more of their goodies.

“Wish they were in DC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

I had read the reviews about this bakery/cafe and wanted to try it out for myself. Was not disappointed. The bakery was jammed with people and kids and it was amazing how they managed to get everyone's order correct. The baked goods (boston cream cake and their sticky buns were outstanding) and the breakfast sandwiches and french toast were equally tasty. The hot chocolate tasted like dark chocolate in a cup. Everything was delicious and I would highly recommend that you check out Flour when you are in Boston.

“Best Bakery in Boston/probably in US”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Whenever I'm in Beantown, my first stop is always the same. Go to Flour for a coconut macaroon. This things are small and sometimes look like a hedgehog but they are truly one of a kind.

Luckily, I have a brother who lives in Boston so whenever I visit him I always make a stop (or two, or three) at Flour.

You cannot go wrong with anything there, the panini's, pastries, chocolates -- all is good. They are famous for their hot sticky buns and when you get it right out of the oven, magic happens.

The prices are very fair and not expensive compared to value. I am used to being ripped off in big cities but here it is not the case. Nothing shocking at all about the price.

Seating is ample and comfortable.

“Flour Bakery & Cafe in Back Bay”

1000 times better than Panera! Chicken, mashed avacado, and jicama sandwich was outstanding! Bakery items looked delicious too! Can't go wrong visiting this place for lunch!
