Sonoma Bakery Cafe story begins in the late 1940s, with a little boy’s adventures in a country bakery. As a young boy, Kerry Connole would visit his grandparents at their Busy Bee general store in the NSW country town of Bellata. But it was in the adjoining, 24sqm bakery that he spent most of his time. Kerry would watch the local baker kneading, stretching and shaping dough, before putting it in the oven where it was transformed into golden loaves. He didn’t know it yet, but that experience would be the beginning of Sonoma Bakery Cafe.
Years later, on a whim, Kerry leased the old bakery for $1,000 per year and restored it with his sons Andrew and Christian. It was 1997 and none of them had ever baked a loaf before, all they knew was that they wanted to make beautiful, wood fired bread.
Today, the much loved Sonoma Bakery Cafe brand is synonymous with excellence. A dad and his two sons who knew nothing about bread took on the challenge and with years of hard work, undying passion and unyielding determination, they’ve created Australia’s most respected artisan sourdough bakery.
Every loaf of Sonoma sourdough contains organic flour, filtered water, sourdough starter and sea salt. It also contains passion, soul, hard work and integrity, fed with love by the bakers who make each one by hand.
