A bit hidden in a side street of a Brookline neighborhood is Clear Flour, a tiny European bakery. I discovered this spot 3 years ago and would go there whenever I needed something that reminded me of home. Clear Flour sells French, Italian as well as German and Austrian bread and pastries and believe me when I am saying that they are beyond delicious. Every time I have been there Clear Flour was crowded with customers (it fits maybe 6-7 people at the same time) and often people waited outside. However, the line moves quickly and the wait is more than worth it.
The menu is different for every day of the week and they also offer special items for occasions like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or Thanksgiving. A calendar of what will be available when can be found on the bakery’s website.
Make sure to stop by at Clear Flour to pick up rolls for your Sunday breakfast, a baguette for the dinner party in the evening or a cake for your afternoon coffee.
