We specialise in slow fermentation sourdough breads, made using traditional methods and just a few simple ingredients; flour, water, sea salt and naturally occurring yeast. All our sourdoughs are hand made over two days, baked on stone, and use organic flour and other wholesome ingredients including nuts, seeds, grains and dried fruit.
Our Peckham Rye was the holder of of the Real Bread Campaign’s London Loaf from 2012-2014, our Miche and Chocolate sourdough won both categories at the Urban Food Awards 2016, we won best baguette at World Bread Awards 2014, we are listed as one of only three bakeries in Monocle Magazine's London travel guide, and were recently named as one of the UK's 20 best bakeries in The Telegraph.

We love two things. Good bread, and good food, and we believe that more often than not, the two go hand in hand.
Our cafes serve seasonal menus, often utilising our sourdoughs and other house made products such as charcuterie, jams, pickles, chutneys and pastries made in the same kitchens.
We serve Square Mile coffee, Teas from Birchall, cheese from Neal's Yard Dairy, meat from Swaledale, fruit and veg from Natoora, milk from The Estate Dairy, beer from Brick Brewery, and wine from Les Caves de Pyrene.
We are open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea, are fully licenced.
