Ordered vanilla slice, hot chocolates, espresso, cannoli and lemon curd tart. Cannoli didn't taste like a cannoli, the "chocolate" end had the right colour but was more berry flavoured than chocolate. Lemon curd had too much filling for the amount of pastry. Coffee and hot...More

Lovely little cafe with a signature Vanilla Slice. What could go wrong? When the girls behind the counter realize what they’re there for it will be a lot better. Discussing social life, swearing, argueing while ignoring customers isnt a good look. The slice was good...More

We went solely for the vanilla slice and wasn't disappointed. Generous serving, not too sweet. firm but soft top and base pastry. Delicate creamy custard. Popular venue with both inside and outdoor seating. Friendly attentive staff. Extensive menu if you're not a vanilla slice fan

After spending 2 weeks in Melbourne and eating out at almost all good rated places we went to Sorrento. And it was worth it. The food, service and location are just perfect.
