Sunflour Baking Company is a family owned bakery and café dedicated to scratch baking in small batches every day. Their food is prepared without preservatives, no artificial flavorings, no dough conditioners, bleached or bromated flour. They prepare their food onsite where you can step right up the glass and see how the master bakers and cooks create your food.

We were given a chance to have a glimpse of how the café is being run by one of its owner Jack Parrish and here’s what he has to say..

How long have you been in business? Sunflour has been in business in Elizabeth since 2009.  The current owners Umarin and Jack Parrish bought the business in 2014 and have been expanding it ever since.
