Unfortunately I made the mistake of ordering a hot chocolate and a special of the week s’mores drink. The young man on the register was very nice; the one gal spent 10 minutes on the phone and the other making sandwiches. After 20 minutes I...got my drinks which were lukewarm at best. and tasteless. The young man at the cashier had to actually stop cashiering to attempt to make my drinks. My $13 was not well spent ( not complaining about the $$). just the service and quality.More

I’ve always been a big fan of Flour Bakery Met my son and DIL for breakfast after they got off the red eye from LA I’m a cookie aficionado and theirs are very good- the oatmeal raisin brown butter blondie, ginger molasses and chocolate chip...were all perfect in a to go bag I always look forward to their sticky buns but these were to up to their usual standards The ham and cheese croissant was also pretty average compared to usual Still a great bakery but like most places post Covid they’ve yet to find their former greatnessMore

Meal was super average, smell was terrible, service also not great. You shouldn't have to take a shower after going to lunch, the awful smell was in my clothes and my hair. Instead of expanding and opening multiple locations, they should invest into better ventilation...system, so people can enjoy their meal. The sandwiches that we ordered were definitely not what we hoped for. So much hype so little quality.More

Pleasant dining for family lunch. Good selection of pastry, coffee drinks and sandwiches. The sandwiches were notable and very tasty - bread and ingredients fresh and completed in a timely fashion. Close to Boston Childrens Museum.

We stopped in mid-day for a snack while walking around Boston. The coconut cream pie was delicious - one of the best we have had. The lemon limeade was also great - so refreshing. There are many amazing looking bakery items on display. Quiche and...pizza are also available. The pie was so good that we dove in and forgot to take a picture. 😆More

I was staying at a hotel nearby and went to flour for coffee and pastries. The pastry selection was expansive! There many things I wanted. I appreciated that there were both savory and sweet options. I was happy with my order: a turnover with spinach...and artichoke had flaky pastry and a tasty filling, and I loved the warm spices and chunks of apple in the apple spice cake. Brewed coffee was okay; it was served a little too hot for my taste, but had good flavor once it cooled down. They do a robust business, so there was always a line. That made it a little hard to enjoy as a cafe versus a grab-and-go spot. Additionally, the staff member announcing food orders would scream at the top of her lungs; I found myself wishing there was a calmer way to let customers know food was ready. That said, staff were working hard and very polite.More
