boston : flour bakery + cafe.

our first stop (food & otherwise) in boston came in the form of a comment on facebook from a follower (hi, sippi!) ... after recently visiting boston for the marathon, she suggested we try flour bakery + cafe. and since i had no idea where to eat lunch when we got there, off to flour we went!

based on our strict itinerary, we ended up at the back bay location. but all four spots have the same amazing philosophy : "make life sweeter ... eat dessert first!" thumbs up emoji!

but there's more! at flour, "everything is prepared in-house by our professional kitchen staff. we offer buttery breakfast pastries, grand homemade cookies, luscious tarts, gorgeous cakes, sandwiches, soups & salads." sounds like the perfect place for breakfast/brunch/lunch, right? oh, and everything vegan is clearly marked on the menu.

here's what i had ...

homemade hummus sandwich :
cucumber, pickled radish + red onion, & harissa on wheat bread.
at this point in our day of travels (i made us take a 7am flight, oops), i was practically starving. and this bad boy hit the spot like none other. i especially loved the harissa spread. 

vegan & low fat chocolate muffin :
ok, this looks like your basic muffin. people, it is not. it was by far the best vegan muffin i've ever had. actual muffin perfection.

if your popping around boston, you should definitely stop in at flour for a quick bite or snack ... or a life-changing muffin. your call. just make sure you do it.
