Fodor's Review

In a city where deep fryers reign supreme, this small bistro-style eatery is a welcome find. The haddock is poached, the scallops seared, the prawns tossed in pesto sauce—and the absence of greasy batter means Flavor's flavors shine through. The menu is a broad one: homemade pastas are popular, as are the inventive sandwiches and all-day breakfast items. There are several gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options, too (a rarity in these parts), plus a Paleo Menu, providing low-carb, low-sugar, zero-gluten, high-protein meals (a rarity anywhere). Brunch is served on Saturday, and you can eat outside on the patio in summer. Another two branches are Flavor 19, at the Lingan Golf Course, and Flavor on the Water, in the cruise ship pavilion on the harbor.
