Who we are
Sourdough Sophia was born out of the lockdown during a global pandemic, in Crouch End, at the heart of North London. We (wife and husband team Sophia and Jesse) supported the community by baking sourdough bread and other beautiful bakes from our fitted-out dining room and delivered it all by bike to those who were in need. Very quickly the community came to love us (and we came to love them), and we are now have a real retail space so that we can all thrive on the most flavourful and delicious sourdough bread in the area!
What we bake
We specialise in handmade sourdough breads, using organic locally grown milled grains and ancient methods of fermentation. We also offer various hand-made bakes such as intricately layered viennoiserie, delicious cakes, brownies and more. Everything is baked on site throughout the day and is visible to the public as they walk into the shop. We don't use any artificial flavours or additives and our breads are fermented for over 24hrs which aids in their flavour, digestibility and health benefits.
You can order our goods online for in-store pickup or free local delivery here

Come and learn
We truly believe that real sourdough bread is far superior to any other type of bread, both in its taste and in its health benefits. Making sourdough isn't just a branding exercise, it is a superior method of fermenting and rising bread, and we have doing it this way for thousands of years until commercial yeast was invented. We feel passionately about reviving these skills in our community and have put together extensive online and in person workshops and programs to help everyone learn about the joys of making sourdough at home.
