our story

Mission

Crusty, crackling baguettes warm from the steaming oven . . . buttery, raisin-filled brioche shaped in a swirl and drizzled with sweet icing…silky-smooth chocolate cream pies…lemon curd cakes filled with crushed raspberries…fresh, made-to-order salads and sandwiches. Flour’s concept was born out of a passionate desire to share the simple pleasures that mouth-watering pastries and foods can bring. Imagine enjoying a muffin still warm from the oven, made with real butter and fresh fruit, alongside a steaming cappuccino. For lunch, choose among daily specials such as three cheese pizza with spicy tomato sauce and fresh herbs or an oven-baked asparagus and country ham quiche with a side salad. Bring home a beautifully decorated birthday cake made with flourless chocolate cake layers, rich chocolate mousse, and ganache. We offer buttery breakfast pastries, grand homemade cookies, luscious tarts, delicious pies, gorgeous cakes, and fresh, made-to-order sandwiches, soups, and salads. Everything is prepared in-house by our professional kitchen staff. Our business includes morning commuters stopping in for breakfast, area employees and neighbors enjoying lunch, friends meeting for coffee and talk, office workers seeking to satisfy their 3pm sugar craving, regulars picking up bread, salad, take-out dinner specials or dessert for their evening meal. Along with our quality product, our success depends on a well-trained, professional service staff. We strive to be constantly and consistently friendly, attentive, hospitable and courteous. We want each guest’s experience to be an enjoyable one, therefore we focus on all aspects involved: great food, gracious service, warm atmosphere, heady aromas, and irresistible displays.

Mapleline Farms Milk

Mapleline’s Jerseys are “happy cows” because they are treated with care, graze on lush pastures surrounding the farm in the summer months and hang out in a new, cushy free-stall barn in the colder months. Our cows have names unlike larger corporate dairies, where cows are treated as numbers, and we take pride in our farm and its surroundings. Mapleline Farm milk is fresh, because its produced and bottled right on the farm and delivered to our customers almost immediately after production.
