Loaf is a cooperative-run bakery and cookery school based in Stirchley, South Birmingham since 2009. We aim to build community through real food and healthy living in Birmingham.

Our bread and pastries are freshly baked on site along with hearty lunches for the workers of Stirchley, while next door we teach bread-making and cookery skills. We look forward to meeting you!

We plan to fully re-open our cookery school in January 2022. Read our plans here.
