flour bakery

Ahhh, it’s been a while since we’ve been to Flour (the one in Fort Point Channel), so when I mentioned the idea of going on Sunday to the husband on Friday we were both giddy with anticipation. So much so that we both had a hard time falling asleep on Saturday night just thinking of all the wonderful things we’d get to see (and taste!) the next morning. Sigh.

And after finding a parking spot (thank you, parking angel!) we walked into the typically chaotically busy (chaos = customers which included lots of little kids and babies, never the staff!) and filled bakery with hungry bellies. Boy oh boy, we certainly were not disappointed by what we saw (click to see larger images … lots of yummy details!):

Surprisingly, there was a fresh batch of Joanne’s sticky buns on the pastry counter. I say “surprisingly” because we got there shortly before 12 noon and these usually completely disappear right out of the oven, and I think we’ve only seen them once before in the ten other times we’ve been there.

Mmmm … homemade Oreo cookies. Coconut macaroons (to die for!!). Chocolate cupcakes.

Ahh … Brioche au sucre … my typical Flour breakfast item. So good each time.

They’ve started a new thing on Sundays … donut specials. Today’s flavor was chocolate cream. They looked so yummy!! Also featured in this shot are the maple oatmeal scones that Tony loves.

More yummy goodness in this photo. Look at the cream just peeking out of the donuts! Check out the thickness of those brownies!

As you can see, the place was packed (typical for the weekends).

Hey, how’d that Oreo cookie sneak into our basket like that??!! πŸ˜‰

I’m ready to dig in! Look at that full latte cup. Yum-o!

The only disappointing part about our visit was that we couldn’t take home our usual box of blueberry muffin tops, macaroons, and peanut butter cups because we were going to be driving around the rest of they day. If it weren’t so dang hot and if we had put a cooler in the trunk, we wouldn’t have worried about it. So that just means that we’ll have to head back soon to enjoy more of their delicious pastries. No argument there! πŸ™‚

{P.S. Joanne Chang is working on a Flour cookbook! You can read all about it here. I can’t wait for this to come out!!}

  1. Wow, those looks soooo good! That brioche du sucre looks really yummy. I can't believe I've lived in Boston for almost 15 years and still haven't checked out this place. Your pictures make me want to go. πŸ™‚
