The Sweet Auburn Bread Company is a family-owned bakery in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. Chef Sonya Jones, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, started the bakery in 1997. Her son, Windsor Jones, helps run the business.
Located in the Sweet Auburn District of downtown Atlanta and just steps from the Martin Luther King Center, the bakery is proud to be a part of this historic neighborhood.
CNN featured Sweet Auburn Bread Company on television in a segment named “The Little Bakery That Could.” The title caught on and is the name of Chef Sonya’s cookbook. Here she reveals her secrets to making many of the delicious delicacies sold in the shop, including her coveted sweet potato cheesecake, the choice of President Bill Clinton.
Honored in 2008 by Ebony magazine’s “Taste of Ebony Awards” as one of the nation’s top Black Pastry Chefs, Sonya Jones proudly continues the tradition of southern African-American baking with her tasty sweet potato pies, pound cakes, and more.
It’s more than experience and skill that produces deliciousness at Sweet Auburn. There’s love baked in every small batch from scratch.
