It’s been a few years since I have had anything to eat from this place, simply because my experience was not great. So I said ok I’ll give it another go. Well I was pleasantly surprised! Great atmosphere buzzing busy and great service. Really friendly...staff. The Coffee and breakfast was fantastically delicious and I’m looking forward to going back.More

Popped into Leighton Buzzard for a break from the M1. By chance we found this lovely cafe, it was buzzing on a Monday lunchtime. A good find, friendly staff, lovely coffee, huge and delicious tea cake.

I've recently visited Sorelli's 4x in the last two months. The food has always been high quality and the service efficient, friendly and all members of staff are very welcoming. Food again is always lovingly prepared and much better than restaurants where you will pay...more for a lesser meal. The all day breakfast and steak ciabatta are absolute favorites. My wife & I have been living in Leighton for 2 years but only recently ventured in and are certainly regulars now. Leighton Buzzard is genuinely lucky to have such a nice place.More

Visited on a Sunday morning and the experience was awful from start to finish. We went in for breakfast and my partner requested ‘Eggs any way’ - she chose Boiled, but the chef was unable/unwilling to boil two eggs. Instead she had poached which tasted...stale and off. The food arrived first and when we asked where the drinks were, we were told rudely ‘we are busy’ - they arrived half way through my meal. When asked if we had enjoyed our food, and explained that the eggs were inedible. There was no apology or resolution offered by the waiter. He just shrugged and said ‘right, ok’ - which was not even an admission that anything was even wrong. We then went to pay, and mentioned to the server that the eggs were poor. She said ‘oh, there is a problem with poached eggs as it’s too hot at the moment and they taste a bit strange’ - again no apology and when we asked for a refund, she only took off the eggs but not the toast, which had barely been toasted, soggy from the wet eggs and slathered in margarine (costing £2.60). This place used to be good but the food, ingredients and attitude of staff was absolutely appalling. I do try to support local businesses but this one is sadly undeserving. Very poor.More

We’re now becoming regulars of this delightful coffee shop - but it’s much more than that offering full breakfast & lunches. All good is freshly baked on the premises under expert stewardship of two delightful Italian sisters. They’ve now opened a deli next door where...home made delicacies can be purchased. We will be going back quite regularly now.More

I had time for lunch in Leighton Buzzard. The Sorelli Cafe was quite new to me as I don't go into town much, mostly because of Covid these days. Sorelli's was busy but not manic. I was greeted very pleasantly, and shown to my table...with warmth by the waitress. I ordered pasta and coffee. I was pleased that there was an option to have a large or smaller meal. I chose the smaller meal simply because I don't eat huge meals. The coffee was delightfully Italian, and the pasta was delicious! The ambience in the cafe was quiet and relaxed, which I liked. I did not feel at all 'hurried'. The service was good, not too slow, and I was listened to when I called the waitress over when I needed to look at the menu for dessert. (No sloppiness and ignoring me, which I am not alone in experiencing sometimes in other cafes.) I will be visiting again when I am in town, and can recommend the food and coffee very highly.More

Leighton Buzzard is so fortunate to be able to boast about this little cafe gem. The smashed avocado with poached egg & pancetta to die for & most reasonably priced. Coffee authentic Italian blend & brilliant. Highly recommended for breakfast, lunch or just a pop...in coffee!More

It was great to return to Sorelli for our traditional Sunday morning breakfast. As a plant eater I find it quite difficult to get a really tasty and enjoyable breakfast. The best one I've had anywhere is at Sorelli in Leighton Buzzard. Whatever they add...to the smashed avocado it tastes fabulous. It come with great meaty tasty field mushrooms, cheery tomatoes and really fresh and bitter rocket. The best bit is they offer a double portion for greedy people like me :-) Thanks for doing a great job. We'll be back again and again and again.More

It was a lovely atmosphere with great food and good service. It’s nice to see smiles around and a bit of normalcy coming back to like. Will definitely go back.

I'm sure they take bookings for a party of 4 or more yes but I'd advise you contact them direct!
