At Sun Moon bakeries over 15 kinds of sourdough bread from flour freshly ground on a stone mill are prepared every day. The ancient tradition of sourdough bread, forgotten in our hectic lives, is revived by their homemade  variety of wholesome breads made with passion and love.

They use high-quality varieties and ancient grains like Spelt, Einkorn, Rye and more, which are grown with love and naturally – organic. Sun Moon works primarily with small local producers in Bulgaria and abroad. Bulgarian farmers help finding the ancient non-hybrid varieties of cereals.

The desire to offer delicious and healthy baked goods is not limited to bread. At Sun Moon over 25 kinds of healthy sweets  are prepared. Again, using mostly whole wheat flour, sweeten with brown sugar, honey, agave, stevia, or maple syrup. The cakes are mostly vegan (no animal products), raw, gluten-free and very, very tasty!


“Sun Moon” is a vegetarian restaurant on the Small 5 Corners in Sofia with cozy atmosphere and delicious food. Nikolai, the manager, shares more about the place.


Q:  “Sun Moon” is a vegetarian restaurant and a bakery. How and why did you decide to combine the cooking of homemade bread and vegetarian meals?

A:   The project began in 2003 when Elisaveta and Svilen started experimenting with baking different kinds of bread made by yeast and whole-grain flours. The restaurant was the next step. It opened in times when there was a need for a vegetarian restaurant that offers creative and traditional meatless food. The main idea of  “Sun Moon” is to recreate essential food habits, that have been lost in our everyday life.

A: Sun Moon is a personification of the balance, the union of the two heavenly luminaries.
