Flour Bakery + Cafe, Boston

Right before my trip to Boston, I was chatting with a friend from Sydney. I started telling her about my upcoming trip to Boston, and she instantly replied with "OMG, you HAVE to go to Flour Bakery. It is soooo good". She raved about it so much that I had to put it on my list of places to check out.

I took a mid morning stroll, and headed to the Flour Bakery at Fort Point Channel. It was just after 11:00am and the place was already packed with a long line up.

This place reminded me of a modern hippy, go green, cafeteria style establishment. The staff here are very friendly, and it was both fun and torture waiting in line.

It was fun because you kept busy reading all the fun stuff they had posted on the boards. I especially enjoyed their quote of the day "All sorrows are less with bread" - Don Quixote. However, it was torture because you had to walk by counters and counters of baked goods while waiting very patiently to place your order. There were so many goodies, it was hard to choose.

When it was finally my turn, I ordered a light lunch with a dessert.

To start, I had the raspberry spritzer: a light and fizzy drink.

My lunch was the roast chicken sandwich with avocado and jicama. This was DELICIOUS. The chicken was prepared tandoori style, and the avocado was infused with lime and cilantro. It was healthy, fresh, and flavorful...loved it!

If you want your sandwich toasted, it is $1 extra.

For dessert, I had the chocolate banana bread. This was also very good. I loved that it was not overly sweet, and the cake was packed with bananas. I think I tasted more banana than cake, which was a nice surprise.

I desperately wanted to go back here for a second meal, but my friends wouldn't allow it. Everyone had their list of places to try and there just wasn't enough time.

This is a great casual place with excellent food.

I really like MA..

I've only skimmed Boston and it's traffic hour..we never stop..we keep driving to The Cape..I guess that's what happens when you get old:(

What a great mantra - eat dessert first! I'll remember that! Great pics, as always!

If you get to go back sometime you'll have to have the sticky buns! Mmmmm... sticky buns. They often run out, so you have to go early!

Love this place...Monique sent me!!! Eat dessert first...I've lived by that all my life, Ha! I can remember eating my cake first in Kindergarden at our class trip to the zoo...My teacher told me I shouldn't do that..very embarrassed at the time, but now that I look back...OH how much she has missed! Enjoyed the Flour bakery and all your great shots...I'll be back ! xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings..
