Flour Power

Great bread from a hidden-away bakery



icture a piece of fluffy bread almost the size of a football wrapped around sweet juicy red and yellow tomatoes and you begin to have an idea of the fire-roasted tomato rustic Italian roll from Clear Flour Bread, tucked away on Thorndike Street on Brookline, just yards from the Allston line. Everything here is good, beginning with the croissants each morning, but because they’re so labor-intensive, only a limited number are made, so get there early for a taste of this flaky and buttery treat. Sold out? Order the morning bun, a cinnamon sticky bun topped with walnuts. If you’re not in the mood for savory focaccias or breads, try the excellent chocolate coconut macaroons—perfectly moist and unapologetically chocolate-y, without being so rich you’ll regret it later. Another great secret: Clear Flour Bakery sells ready-to-rise, homemade pizza dough. Kutz and Leccese



The rolls leave the oven at Clear Flour between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Get ’em while they’re hot.
