We’ve built more than your average high street bakery

When I moved to London I couldn't find any real bread in my local community and was astonished by how little everyone knew about the benefits of sourdough bread. We set up Sourdough Sophia to change the way we consume bread, one loaf at a time. We sell sourdough bread, delicious hand-laminated pastries and well-mannered coffee.

It all started with a simple thought

Who wouldn’t want freshly made sourdough bread and pastries made from scratch every day in their local neighbourhood?

A lockdown community success story

We’ve come a long way

During lockdown Jesse and Sophia delivered 50+ deliveries per day to our local neighbourhood.

Now we serve thousands in our bakery every month.

+50% tax relief on investment

SEIS available but hurry…

The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) allows investors in this round to claim +50% of their investment back in tax relief, but only up to the total value of £200k in this round.

So hurry and be part of the early investors!

Once £200k is reached the enterprise investment scheme (EIS) still allows investors to claim 30% tax relief. We are pre-approved already.
