A contemporary twist on baked Middle Eastern classics

qually crowded with temptations and Cantabridgians who have discovered this tiny bakery and would prefer to keep it to themselves, Sofra is a full sensory experience. The shelves are lined with spices, all varieties of hummus, and preserved fruits and vegetables. Try the famous morning bun: croissant dough cut into cubes, tossed with cinnamon cardamom sugar, and topped with an orange blossom glaze. The sesame cashew bites pack buttery goodness into small cubes made of layers of brown sugar shortbread topped with sesame seeds and cashews. The savory menu items deserve the same attention, from the perfectly flaky spanakopita to the spinach falafel. Leccese
