My french toast was good but too moist for true enjoyment. Coffee is good! The place is packed with minimal seating. The space is very small especially with screaming babies in strollers!!! The people waiting for orders stand in front of the condiment, silverware, milk section, nearly in my personal space, so saying excuse me gets old. Not sure I... More

Very busy when we walked in to order. The interior has a small seating area. The process of ordering food and getting your order was quick and efficient. They could almost use a larger ordering/pick up area because it was pretty close quarters between the cashier and people picking up food. The homemade Oreo I had was pretty delicious. I... More

I met some friends at Flour while visiting Boston on a recent trip. All four of us each had a toddler with us. The dining area is small, so it was a challenge for us all to sit together, but we managed to get one end of a large table. I ordered the sticky bun at the suggestion of a... More

bakery was busy, it took a while to order, and it was a wait to get a table. But once I did...it was worth it. Coffee and salads were great!

The baked goods were very good, but the sandwiches we had were great. Everything was fresh and good quality.

Food was very good; however, as an elder, couldn't stand the crowds and horrific noise level. that, of course, is due to the reputation of the food. so, how does one win? Next time, I will go for take-out.

We go to the branch on Mass Av in Cambridge, MA. MIT crowd and Cambridge young families. Highest quality baked goods clearly made with high quality ingredients. Trying the sticky buns and the twice baked almond brioche is a must. Desserts you will find only in high end restaurants yet prices are very reasonable. All day breakfast served. Once you... More

Frequented Flour in Cambridge on numerous occaisons when my daughter worked there. She was never our server so we interacted with a wide variety of staff who were always pleasant an accommodating. Visited for morning coffee as well as lunch and were never disappointed. Space was tight as there were always a lot of regulars and a steady but fast... More

The banana bread is the best. Everything looks delicious, from the cookies to the cakes. I have not had a chance to try everything, but all looks so good and made with the best ingredients. Try it and you will see and taste what I mean.
