flour egg sandwich

just had the flour egg sandwich for the first time. loved the dijonaise, tomato etc. the egg was unique. not sure if I like or hate. it was almost a egg custard. any thoughts on its preparation or whether or not you like/dislike?

  1. I hate Flour (crowded, overpriced), but I love their egg sandwich. Best I've ever had.

    1. It's one of the best breakfast sandwiches I have had. I like the egg. To me, it's just well executed soft scrambled/omelette style.

        as it was my first one, I don't have anything to compare it to, but it was very smooth and ribbony- there was zero omelette consistency.

      2. I go to the flour on farnsworth street a few times a month. The sandwiches I think are priced moderately. If there's a line I seldom go in, keeping the line moving is not what they do best. I will try the egg sandwhich next time there.

        1. My guess is that the egg is baked. I've had the impression that many are made early in the morning and that they are warmed up as the sandwiches are ordered.

          1. Flour does not have a griddle and bakes their eggs. They do a spectacular job on their bacon (always very well done, almost to the point of overcooked).

            I still prefer Petsi Pies egg sandwich.

              Bacon cooked in the oven is always great.
