review: Sorelle Bakery & Cafe in Charlestown

Yum! I would definately go back.

Went there last night for a light dinner. Called ahead to see if we needed reservations; the woman on the phone was super friendly.

Sadly, there were no other patrons when we arrived.

The Decor
---------
It's a new space in City Square, and nicely done. Nothing fancy, but there are colorful plastic chairs, nice lighting, and some large, bold art pieces. There is a small outdoor seating area, a medium-sized indoor seating area, and a few standing-height counters.

The Food
--------
The menu has a good selection of baked goods, salads, and sandwiches. For dessert, there's an array of cookies, cakes, individual pastries, and more!

I had a pressed prochutto panni, with tomatoes, cheese (I forget which type...) and ham. Could have been grilled a little more, but other than that, yum! I also had some of an "asian salad", which was good.

My wife had a croque monseiur, which she loved, but had a little too much cheese for my tastes.

For dessert, we had a most-excellent "resverse" chocolate chip cookie, and an uninspired tiramisu. The chocolate cookie was very fudgy and rich, and the addition of vanilla chips was a good contrast. The tiramisu was quite monotone, and mostly tasted of marcapone cheese, with no coffee or brandy flavors.

To drink, I had a black cherry soda (one of those "micro-brew" bottled varieties. My wife had a glass of medoc, which was not unreasonably priced. One sad note was that they do not sell wine by the bottle, but only by the glass.

It was all quite resonably priced as well.

I definately recommend it.
