We ate at another Flour Bakery when we stayed in Boston at the first part of our trip and came here for our last night in town. Just a fan of the fresh sandwiches and pastries here. Everything we tried was great!

We enjoyed a light breakfast here of brioche and French toast. Was a little disappointed that they were out of oatmeal at 10 am, though. The chocolate brioche was really good.

Hummus Sandwich-Hummus Sandwich-Hummus Sandwich. Have never tasted a Hummus Sandwich like this. Plus, really excellent coffee and cake for desert. Husband loved his lamb/goat cheese sandwich-and he is very fussy about lamb.
