I was staying at a hotel right around the corner and wanted a sandwich before going on the duck tour. The ladies at the counter helped me make the decision to get the grilled roasted chicken sandwich! It was amazing and came out super fast! The flavors were exceptional and such a perfect portion!

I often take people here for lunch or a treat. It is not cheap but it is WELL worth it! I adore their cranberry chutney which they make seasonally I believe. WOW! I also really like their soups and sandwiches. Their baked goods are really tasty.

Very yummy, very creative sandwiches. Came here on a Sunday on the way to the ICA with out-of-town friends. Perfect informal atmosphere. Parking is not so good. The lot across the street on Farnsworth advertised discounted rates with validation, but Flour doesn't validate. Also, the ICA didn't validate this lot. Sighhhhhh...

You must try the lemon raspberry cake. It's better than your grandma's. They also deliver so you can order some whenever you can.

So, I was a bit disappointed when I came here, for mostly service reasons. I had heard the hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies couldn't be beat here, so my husband and I headed over here for a late breakfast along with some treats. When I got there, the espresso machine was broken so I could not get a latte... More
