Based on trip advisor’s rating, I decided to try Flour Bakery for breakfast and it was great. Coffee was pretty good but the real surprise were the aman kouign. They were as good as any I’ve had in Breton. Good breakfast sandwich, too.

Mostly on the go food. Worth the wait queueing. Suits the European palette if you are not into a heavy breakfast. No problem finding a seat even if seating is limited.

We visited the Flour Bakery each morning for breakfast while we were staying in Seaport. The staff is kind and service is quick! The coffee is great and the pastries are freshly homemade. The sticky buns and almond croissants were delicious!
