Sorelle Eatery

St Lucia

Sorelle Eatery is a fab foodie cafe in the heart of St Lucia offering a fresh twist on traditional Italian food for breakfast and lunch, along with excellent coffee, boutique wine and beautiful homewares. 

The cafe and homewares shop is a sibling for Tognini's, the long-standing deli cafe in Milton. Sorelle (pronounced ‘so·rèl·le’) means sisters in Italian, and marks the next generation for the family business as sisters, Madeleine and Nastassia, join their parents Mark and Narelle Tognini in hospitality.

Sorelle Eatery features a huge, oak timber, communal table surrounded by smaller tables in the light filled dining space, with a stunning stone bench top, and arches adding a modern aesthetic to the cafe and shop. In addition, guests can dine al fresco with a  small, covered patio provided at the entrance.
