Hi Foodies,

Last weekend, my mom and I had a special lunch date together.  We unanimously agreed on Sorelle & Co. a bake shoppe & café, which has been on our list for way too long.

Sorelle is a vegan and gluten, soy, sesame, nut and preservative free bakery!  The idea began with a mother with 5 daughters, all of whom all had various food allergies.  The mother's love for cooking and her dreams of creating a family-friendly worry-free bakery brought Sorelle (meaning sister in Italian) to life.  The bake shoppe is located in Vaughan in the 1845 Historical building built by Thomas Cooke which was the former Carville Post Office & General Store.

Sorelle is the epitome of elegance, beauty and sophistication.  The café is the picture perfect home with white shutters, manicured shrubs and teal sun shades, giving you a warm and bright welcoming.  We were blown away as we entered the shoppe.  The bakery is bright and welcoming with high ceilings, wainscoting and an elegant chandelier at the entrance.  White walls are beautifully accented with pops of pastels, gold detailing and glitz and glam!

All the delicious baked goods are beautifully displayed behind the counter.  With a wide assortment of treats from delicate pastries to donuts, Sorelle has something for everyone!

For lunch, we ordered the vegetable & chickpea falafel and the roasted vegetable panini.  Of course, we made sure to order a sweet treat for dessert!  We made our way to the second floor to enjoy our food and have some girl chat.  The second floor seating is elegance at it's finest, with large comfy chairs and marble tables. The food is served on white plates with scalloped edges or beautiful detailing alongside gold utensils.

The vegetable and chickpea falafel was served with jasmine rice, crispy onion and a light curry sauce. The savoury dish was light, fresh and delicious.

The panini had roasted vegetables, onion jam, black olive and red pepper hummus with vegan cheese alongside a mixed green salad.  The dish was so yummy and we couldn't believe it was gluten free and vegan!

How adorable are these mugs?
We both enjoyed cappuccinos with coconut milk served in gorgeous mugs.  The cappuccino was perfection, the best we both ever had!  My mom and I are avid black coffee drinkers and enjoy a strong cup of caffeine.  Often times, cappuccinos are so filling and have way too much milk.  Sorelle's cappucino was light and flavourful, the perfect balance of milk and espresso.

Paris Brest
 Seasonal Cranberry Tart
For our sweet treats, we indulged in the Paris Brest and a seasonal cranberry tart.  The Paris Brest is a French pastry with praline flavoured cream.  The pastries were so delicious and flavourful! It was the perfect was to finish off a fun mom and daughter date.

My adorable mom!

We had a fabulous experience at Sorelle & Co.! The service was warm and friendly.  The food was absolutely light and delicious, yet flavourful.  We felt satisfied and guilt-free.  In addition to the fabulous food and hospitality, the café is such a beautiful setting which tops off the perfect experience.  We both cannot wait to go back to Sorelle for another lunch or even afternoon tea.

What is your favourite place for a mom and daughter date?
