Fodor's Review

Finding this bakery on a small Brookline side street can be tough and finding parking, tougher still. But Clear Flour Bread rewards the persistent with delicious croissants both sweet (chocolate) and savory (Gruyère), brioches, and European-style crusty breads like a Gorgonzola-walnut fougasse. While strictly a bakery (there are no sit-down meals or sandwiches), Clear Flour is a perfect weekend option for decadent, Euro-style goodies. You'll come for the scones and sticky buns, and leave with a couple of loaves of pesto foccacia and polenta bread to get you through the week.
