Flour is the ultimate neighborhood bakery—and anything but traditional. Yes, there are the classic breakfast pastries, like buttery croissants, tarts, cakes, and cookies, but there are also some unconventional additions like sesame and jicama, and sandwiches so good you want to eat them every day (we’re partial to a custardy egg sandwich with spinach and Portobello mushroom). Behind the bakery is 2009 Boston Rising Star Restaurateur Joanne Chang, whose loving touch is visible on every item in each location. With at least two more locations in the works and a cookbook on the way, Chang is proving to be an unstoppable force in the Boston food scene.
