Ok, not much to say that hasn't been said... everything ous delicious. And we pretty much tried EVERYTHING. the sticky buns are incredible. Get lots of butter and all them to warm it. Oh my goodness, heaven. The banana bread is the best we ever...had. Sri moist and rich with fresh banana taste. Try the homemade Oreo. Very rich sand decadent. Delicious, but not a perfect copy. The ginger molasses cookie is beyond amazing. Soft, intense flavor. Dip it in a latte for an amazing treat. The sticky buns sell out quickly, especially oon the weekend. So go early and wait in line. Worth it... you'll probably go twice within 24 hours like we did.More

Very nice and clean bakery doing breakfasts and sandwiches. There's a fairly limited choice but what they do is good quality. The sandwiches are well filled. Nice staff - friendly place.

We visited this location due to it being on a list as the best cookie in MA and their sticky buns having won a contest on Food Network. We ordered a sticky bun, 2 chunky lolas and 2 chocolate chip cookies. The chocolate chip were...ok, the chunky lolas were downright amazing as were the sticky buns. It was very crowded but the staff worked great together and kept everything moving.More

For 2 days we have had brunch at Flour in Dalton Street and think it’s amazing and great value for money including free coffee refills. The quality of food and drink is reflected by its popularity. We had the breakfast sandwiches with soufflé eggs and...bacon and they were incredible! I didn’t have room for a cake sadly but they looked absolutely delicious! Also special mention of the staff - hugely efficient and friendly. I so recommend Flour and will definitely return when next in Boston .More

I would give this place a 5 star except it did not have adequate dining space inside. Every other aspect of the visit was perfection. The staff was amazingly friendly and attentive, and the baked good and cappuccino that I ordered were exceptional. I would...go back here again in a heartbeat.More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch and enjoyed our sandwiches. She went with the roast beef sandwich, and I decided to go with their version of a BLT on their sourdough bread, which was toasted perfectly and delicious. Despite being so busy,...they moved the line along very well and our food came out quickly. When you visit, make sure you get some of their baked goods, you won't regret it!More

I was staying nearby and was recommended this cafe. It’s lovely with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating options. The staff were super friendly and service was quick. I had the cinnamon bun which was absolutely delicious and a really good portion size. I then...had an oat latte but that wasn’t great. It was more like a cappuccino and the coffee tasted slightly burnt.More

I've visited three different Flour locations through out the Boston cityscape and have enjoyed each of the unique non nonsense locations. They offer a variety of coffees and teas along with an array of mouthwatering pastries from scones to muffins and cinnamon rolls buried in...a sugary frosting. Flour has a mastery of breakfast sandwiches stuffed with eggs, a variety of meats and fresh veggies, including avacoado. It's worth the trip.More

I came here waiting for a friend. Nice "little" bakery. I say little because there's a giant mirror to the left, I thought it was additional seating but I was wrong. The coffee is good. Its strong because I drink mine back. There's a couple...of unique sandwiches there that I want to try. Last time I went, we were aboit to go meet up for lunch else where.More

It's been some time since I've been but glad to try a decade later. Many years back I had a bad experience of a piece of plastic in scone and then another birthday cake with a hair. Thankfully this visit had no surprises. The breakfast...sandwich was very good although I still would have preferred the super applewood smoked bacon on thick white toast. The scallion parmesan scone was scrumptious. Saving for tomorrow the pumpkin brioche and a ginger scone. If those don't suffice i also got some bang bread that looks sumptuous. The expresso was surprisingly great too.More

When I want to treat myself I make a beeline for Flour in Boston's South End. Whether it's breakfast or lunch or I just want to pick up something really special, they never disappoint.
