Back In Town

The Beantown. Thank god for Spring vacation and what a week to have it too! Yesterday I enjoyed good conversation and a delicious Thai Peanut Tofu wrap at Blue Shirt Cafe in Davis with the best of company from Tufts University. I must say if you're ever in Davis Square and you can't decide on what restaurants to count out, it's not going to get any easier because Blue Shirt certainly isn't one to skip over. Oh Davis Square how I missed you...

The Organized Chaos of Something Great...

But today, on my way north from south of the city I stopped in East Boston for sweet sustenance at Flour Bakery + Cafe on Farnsworth street. There are three of the charming bakeries scattered across Boston and this one certainly sees its fair share of patrons from the bustling business district it nested beneath. It was a busy shop and I waited about ten minutes for my take-out order but considering the customer to employee ratio I observed it was a feat of cooperative capacities.

I enjoyed a delicious Grilled Tofu panini stacked thick with crisp roasted vegetables, salty-umami Olive tapenade and perfectly soft-crusted bread. The sandwich was substantial but sadly I devoured it before realizing I had intended to photograph it!
Good? No. Perfect.
Beyond the extensive sandwich menu sure to please carnivores and veg-heads alike (Hummus to Portabello Melts and Tofu for the latter and Curried Chicken, Roast Beef, Grilled Chicken-Avocado, and Turkey-Cranberry for a sample) the bakery treats... Oh the sweets...
Soups, salads, and stuffed savory breads are rotated daily alongside delectable-sounding quiche (Portabello and spinach I think it was today) and pizette.
I'd love to stop in some Sunday morning and sip a steeping tea while enjoying the sticky residue of a cinnamon bun or piping oatmeal bowl. Perhaps next time...


Cookies, Cakes, Croissants, Cross Buns... Too much!
Never.

So if you're in the vicinity of one of these gluten-stronghold stop in. Even if you've jumped the wheat-ship there's something you'll enjoy, I assure you, even if its the company of as good friend and a few good cups of tea.
