Flour Bakery--Delicious BLT; disappointing Boston Cream Pie

I have never been a huge fan of Flour's sandwiches (other than the original tuna with roasted red peppers and tapenade--so yummy, so missed), partly b/c I can only stomach that very oily bread every so often, but I very decadently indulged in a BLT today, which I had never tried, and it was excellent. The bacon, of which there was a TON, was perfectly cooked and not too fatty (for bacon!), and though the entire thing was a bit heavy, what with the bread, the bacon and the mayo, it was delicious. Not so for the Boston Cream Pie, which I tried on the recommendation of a few people on this board--the filling seems to be primarily whipped cream (frozen, at that), instead of custard, as it should be, and the cake bits were sort of dry and tasteless. From now on I will stick with the molasses ginger cookies, which have never let me down.
