A little bit of Paris in Brookline – Ok. So I just wrote that this place is small and at it often has long lines. That should be a sign that it's good, and it is! I grew up in Brookline, practically within a 5 minute walk of Clear Flour Bread and I wish this place was around 20 years ago. It would have forced me to go to Paris that much sooner. The smells and sights are all there. The locals and restaurateurs alike love Clear Flour Bread for its dedication to its craft. They truely do make fresh baguettes to foccacia to croissants chocolate, plain.. you name it. They ran out often and on the last visit I settled on pain aux raisins and a hot cup of coffee. It's a touch hard to find, (good) and claustrophobic (bad).. but worth the wait.
i hate to say it because the lines are already long enough but this is a good place to know about if you live in the boston-cambridge area. happily i don't live far. the morning buns and croissants are special as many of the deserts and of course the breads. don't believe me please. its already popular enough especially on weekends.
This is a great place to indulge your taste buds – This place is on a small side street and it is very hard to park by the store front. But when you walk in the door you are over come by such sweet smells that you wouldn't mind getting a parking ticket for double parking. They have the best sticky buns ever. Thanks for keeping my taste buds happy and my belly full of great treats and breads! I love coming on different days and finding new things to try!
Hard-to-find Brookline bakery rewards patrons with top-notch breads and sweet treats. – In Short
A favorite of area chefs, Clear Flour garners loads of awards for its hand-shaped breads, many of which are served in top Boston restaurants. Gourmands come from far and wide to buy loaves of authentic French and Italian varieties. The bakery's morning buns, brioches, cakes (pear-ginger coffee cake) and cookies (orange shortbread) also impress. With daily specials ("sunshine" focaccia on Saturdays, fire roasted tomato rustic rolls on Thursdays), patrons always have something new to try.
The best bread in Boston – It's difficult to find, but the rewards are outstanding. Try the chocolat croissants and the brioche, not to mention the Italian country bread, ymmm. The line is out the door on weekends.
