Breakfast with a laugh

Small neighborhood restaurant, cash only. Breakfasts with various local twists. The best part is the service with great sense of humor. A warm friendly humor that makes you feel part of the family.

This breakfast and lunch restaurant is beloved by locals. Don't be discouraged by its appearance, it is a neighborhood gem. Its tiny kitchen produces a dizzying array of breakfast and lunch food, all of it delicious. And in the highly unlikely event that you don't find a combination to your tastes, they are happy to build a special omelette for... More

My friend and I happened onto Sorella's by accident. We were out walking and looking for a breakfast/coffee spot. She had an everything bagel; I had bacon, eggs, and French toast, which is one of their specialties. Neither breakfast disappointed. My eggs were cooked to order, the French toast was tasty, and the bacon hit the spot. The waitress spoke... More

We went for lunch on a weekday and the place was not busy at all. For this reason, we had attentive & friendly service. Don't know about the weekends ... I've heard that it is the opposite. Small but airy and adequate space between tables. Single bathroom beside the kitchen is just ok. Large selection of omelets and breakfast food.... More

Went for breakfast at this place and was in awe for the many extensive options. The pancakes they had were very good! However, the small restaurant size meant that the service was rushed and tables were being asked to leave just as they had their last bite. Also, note that this place is cash only so bring enough!

Extensive breakfast menu, many options, specials and combinations. We ate there two consecutive mornings and the service was good with several folks taking your order and delivering food. Location is in a funky old building and the first morning (Friday) we were in a small ground floor room right off the street. The next morning we were in a second... More

This is a cozy neighborhood restaurant with friendly and attentive staff The menu is extensive and creative. There is something for everyone from vegetarians to meat lovers. The food is reasonably priced with generous portions. The raspberry butterscotch pancakes were a treat.

it was a snowy, blustery morning our first day in Boston. We had rented an AirBNB in Jamaica Plains and were in dire need of a good, solid breakfast. SORELLA'S did not disappoint. Service was a bit finicky as we had multiple servers attending to our needs. Everyone was kind and accommodating. The food was great and the omelette selections... More

We waited long for getting a table but, well, it was a busy Saturday morning... no need for the boss to be unfriendly though. Then, we waited 25' before he came to take orders - still rude. On my son's cup, we found an old leaf ; on his plate, 2 hairs ; under his pancake, another leaf. And coffee... More

Have your omelet your way, or have it Sorella's way. Sorella's has created omelet choices that no one has thought of before. This place is open early and fills up fast. The only problem is there is not place to park. Park on a side street or walk.
