ABOUT US

In Turkish, Sofra is synonymous with generosity and hospitality.  James Beard nominated Executive Pastry Chef Maura Kilpatrick and co-founder Ana Sortun (of Oleana, Sarma & Siena Farms) approach cuisine with a Middle Eastern sensibility by creating delicious food featuring unique spices and spice blends.  Sofra Bakery & Cafe reinterprets regional food traditions of the Eastern Mediterranean to make them accessible and inspiring for our guests. 

WHY JOIN OUR TEAM?

At the end of the day, we want our restaurant to be a representation of our values – the kind of place we would hang out on our day off.  All of our businesses are funky, fun spots that appeal to people from all walks of life.

Sofra is an equal opportunity employer.  We are committed to a diverse workforce and support an environment that is inclusive and respectful.
