ORGANIC . SOURDOUGH . LOCAL

 

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.

You can also pop by the Today Bread café in the heart of Walthamstow to enjoy it with brunch or on our delicious range of sandwiches and toasties.

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. 

We aim to make all our cakes and pastries on site in the bakery.  To keep things fresh and exciting, we offer seasonal variations, using organic and local ingredients as much as we can. Reducing waste and creating original recipes is important to us, so you may recognise some of the ingredients used in our breads and in our kitchen in our beautiful range of cakes and pastries.


THE CAFE

Part of Central Parade - the creative hub run by Meanwhile Space - our light and airy café welcomes a mixed crowd of both locals and London explorers from all walks of life. Our busy bakery and cafe is surrounded by a variety of independent retailers, studios and co-working areas. Located in a historic post-war building that previously hosted a bank and council offices, our café was designed by acclaimed architects Gort Scott.

We are available for exclusive hire to host events, parties, or to use as a filming location. Please email us for more details.

OUR PRODUCERS

We are proud to be working with a small selection of hand picked producers we strongly believe in. 

Our coffee is roasted by the fantastic Mozzo Coffee team who strongly invest in ethical farming through their Community2Ccommunity fund, which was co-created to help the farmers back in the Democratic Republic of Congo. And WOW, do their coffees taste amazing!

The milk used for our coffees and cakes comes straight from The Estate Dairy, a small team of dairy merchants specialised in producing high quality un-homogenised milk in the Chew Valley, Somerset. Their farm is run on a free range system, exposing all 250 pedigree Guernsey cows to as much fresh pasture as possible throughout the summer months. This results in a happier and healthier herd yielding a rich golden milk, particularly suited to create premium coffee drinks. 

Our ever-so popular cheese toasties are made exclusively with English sourced cheeses. With this focus in mind, we chose Buchanan's, an artisan cheesemonger located in Mayfair, Central London. 

The organic flour used for our breads and cakes come from Shipton Mill based in a Cotswold valley near Tetbury, specialised in milling a range of organic flour of exceptional quality.

Other providers include Birchall teas, James White fruit juices, Karma Cola soft drinks, Bee17 Honey, Ella’s Kitchen, Snact and Urban Fruit.

 

ABOUT US

Alex started his venture in 2006 with The Bread Workshops while at the Royal College of Art. A perfect tool for exchange, conviviality, education and great meals, Bread sums up our strong ethos centred on healthy food, friendship and beautiful design. 

Making sourdough breads from home while learning the craft in local bakeries, Alex's started doing deliveries of his sourdough breads by bike to a small but growing group of local friends, cafés and Bread Club members. Soon forced to transform a room of his flat into a mini bakery (with 25kg bags of flour everywhere, fridges stacked on top of each others, flour everywhere, very little sleep and a very very understanding partner), it slowly became obvious we had to move into the real world and it was time to open a bakery! This happened in 2016 when Today Bread opened its door in Walthamstow Central on a Monday morning, purveying organic breads and great coffees to the local community while retaining the bike deliveries.

With international recognition for his work in design, graphics, events, curating and education, DesignMarketo’s co-founder combines his large experience to produce one of the most simple foods today: bread.

We did the workshop few weeks ago and it was fantastic. During the 3-4 hours, we learned about the whole process, types of bread, ingredients and few tricks (that I will keep for myself...). Alex was very friendly and answered all our questions with clear and precise information. By the end of the workshop, we took our bread home and it was delicious!
Now we are baking every week at home. We had to adjust the recipe and times to our oven, but it is still very good. We have even added olives to it!

I attended the workshop with my friends, definitely a great team experience! Being the first time making bread for all of us, Alex had to share his wide knowledge on the subject and answered kindly all of our questions. And the best bit, the 2 loafs of bread we made were really tasty!
