In Boston and you do not know where to go for lunch? Go to Flour located five minutes out of Boston and into Cambridge. It is just around the corner from MIT college.
Flour is a nice little bakery and cafe. As you walk in, you can feel the warmth of the ovens and the friendliness of people. You do not have to worry about having your order on the tip of your tongue or what to get. They have chalkboard walls filled with types of sandwiches, soups, breads, muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. Also you do not have to feel rushed about ordering, they give you time, and there are always huge lines around breakfast and lunch time. The atmosphere is always bright and cheery.
The food is amazing, and it just melts in your mouth with delight. I have actually never been for breakfast, but when I go for lunch the pastries are almost all gone! I have always gotten the tomato and mozzarella sandwich on a baguette. They panini press it to make it crisp and warm. The sandwich fills you all the way to the brim that I sometimes have to share it with my sister. My mom always gets their tomato soup. She says it is creamy and delightful. Once you take one bite, it fills your body up with coziness, and it just hits the spot every time. She is too afraid to try something else because she can not get away from how good it tastes and thinks nothing else will be like it. We all have our favorites that are to die for.
The hours are the only downer on the place because they vary so much. The hours on Monday through Friday are good because they open at seven in the morning and close at seven at night. On Saturdays, you have to wait an hour, so you could sleep in or work out, and then it closes an hour earlier at six P.M. Then, on Sunday mornings, you have to hold your hunger until nine, and it closes at three in the afternoon, so you could not go for dinner. Also, another inconvenience is the lines! Sometimes they are out the door and down the street. If you come here on time for lunch or breakfast, you can not be in a rush. The waits can be sometimes torturous, but it is worth it. You can hit perfect times where there are no waits, but you have to be lucky!
