  • When mom comes to visit she demands that bread from Clear Four is waiting for her - the best damn bread in Boston.
  • Get here early on the weekends. It's like a Soviet-era bread line. Have coffee ahead of time!
  • Stay in the Line its worth it at the end
  • Chocolate Croissants in the morning. But call them Pain au Chocolat, that's what they are.
  • Gruyere cheese croissant
  • Best bakery in city - Friday a great German Vollkorn bread - best I've found in US. Also, killer Rye. Not cheap but very much worth it!
  • Don't just order one grueyre cheese croissant because you'll be done with it before you get 100 feet from Clear Flour. These little bad boys are the bomb!
