Don’t Miss the Sticky Buns at the New Flour Bakery + Café

Given that she's built a successful business on desserts, it's hard to believe that Flour Bakery + Café's owner, Joanne Chang, grew up without eating a single sweet in her traditional Taiwanese household. Despite the lack of sugary treats at home, Joanne eventually noshed on pastries at friends' houses, and then went on to start baking and selling cookies out of her home kitchen as an adult. This small business grew into Flour Bakery + Cafe, which now boasts a handful of locations around the Boston area—including a shop at the Hynes Convention Center that just opened three months ago.

Like its sister locations, Flour Bakery + Cafe on Dalton Street dishes out house-made sweets, specialty breakfast items, and fresh sandwiches and salads for lunch. Customers highly recommend the sticky buns, which are smothered with caramel and flecked with toasted pecans. Pair yours with a piping-hot cup of coffee or a latte.
