Sophie's was created by me, Sophie Elliott, because of my passion for Afternoon Tea and cakes.
I have loved baking ever since I learnt to make my very first Victoria Sponge and my Mum and Grandmother are my inspirations when it come to baking and cooking.
I studied a foundation degree in Professional Culinary Arts at Bournemouth University after I left school and then went onto to work in a independent cafe until I was ready to start up my own business.
In January 2016 I went on a Prince's Trust enterprise course to learn more about business and to write a business plan, I now have a mentor who is helping me work towards my goal of owning my own tearoom.
Now having being operating as a mobile business for 8 years, having been a regular stall holder at Ely Farmers market for 7 years and Newmarket for 4 years, I have now opened my own tearoom in Ely in September 2022.
