Sorelle and Co.

 

I love anything high tea-esque so the beautiful and elegant interior of Sorelle and Co. definitely roped me in.  If you are a health conscious individual, their menu is gluten/ soy/ sesame/ nut/ preservative – free and  vegan.

Their menu consists of a variety of cupcakes, cookies, and pastries Continue reading
