Sorella Boutique Gourmande is a hidden little gem that opened a few months ago on St-Charles in Kirkland (just south of Hymus). This spot has it all! It is both a coffee shop and bakery, a gourmet food store and a gift destination. The owners are newlyweds Anto and Valerie, who reside in Beaconsfield. They wanted to bring some NYC flair (or was it Griffintown?) to the West Island, and they succeeded! Sorella is chic, warm and welcoming, with an invigorating scent of freshly ground espresso coffee that hits you as soon as you walk in.

Sorella is not just a café! It’s a one-stop shop for every foodie. Their product selection ranges from imported olive oils, aged balsamic vinegars, spices, pasta, truffle specialty products, marinades, sweets and more! They have a small selection of vegan and/or gluten-free products too. They sell cheeses and fresh sausages, desserts, and fresh & frozen easy dinner options for your family.

They serve a simple but exquisite lunch menu which consists of gourmet sandwiches, prepared salads, vegetarian or meat chili and tasty soups. Their soups are made fresh in-house every morning with real ingredients. They are flavorful, healthy, homemade and perfect for fall weather. You can enjoy it on-site at their inviting communal table or take it home and share it with your family. They also do catering such as platters of sandwiches, cheese, antipasto, salads, canapés, sweets and more!

 

More importantly, Sorella will make your Christmas shopping a whole lot easier! Stocking stuffers, teachers’ gift (!!!), beautifully crafted gourmet gift baskets, and decadent imported pannetones! You’ll check off everyone on your list!
