About Today Bread

Welcome to Today Bread! We are a small organic sourdough bakery and cafe located in Walthamstow Central. We believe in local, seasonal and sustainable food. Each of our loaves are expertly made by hand using organic flour and the slow fermentation process that characterises sourdough bread. Our bread is stone baked and delivered by bike to local cafés, delis and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Our bread is freshly made every morning in front of you using organic flour, water, salt, and most importantly, time! Rather than using commercial yeast, our loaves are made using naturally occurring yeast giving them the beautiful flavours and aromas that make sourdough bread so special.
