After opening in November, Sorelle Café became another of the numerous coffee houses and eateries along Wanhai Road in Shekou’s Rose Garden area – but even among the many, Sorelle distinguishes itself with memorable pizzas, a pleasant atmosphere and a wide-ranging Western menu that includes 32RMB onion rings and 138RMB filets.

In the former location of Sidewalk Café, Sorelle’s caffeine choices start with a 16RMB coffee of the day, 18RMB espresso and 20RMB green, jasmine and black teas, then broaden to 27RMB caramel macchiato, a 32RMB cookies-n-cream ice blend and 40RMB Irish coffee.

Breakfast options for early risers feature an omelet selection that’s rare in the Rose Garden area and includes the chicken sausage and mushroom omelet (38RMB), for example, with the title ingredients plus onions, green peppers, tomatoes and cheese.
For lunch, try a deli salami, egg and cheese sandwich (38RMB) with lettuce and tomatoes or a tuna sandwich (38RMB) with onions, tomatoes, lettuce and pickles.
And then, of course, there are the pizzas. Available to eat in, carry out or order for delivery, Sorelle’s thin-crust pies include the Meat Lover’s (60RMB for a 9-inch, 88RMB for a 13-inch), with pepperoni, beef, ham, onions, peppers, tomato sauce and olives. With ingredients that overflow slices and a hearty amount of cheese, American pizza fans might have a hard time folding the crust in the traditional New York style – but however you shovel it down, the Meat Lover’s is a delicious meal and then some.

An unconventional pie option, for the same prices as the Meat Lover’s, is the Seafood Pizza, with shrimp, mussels and cuttlefish atop the tomato sauce and cheese.
Sorelle’s menu also includes spaghetti and other Italian dishes from 48 to 78RMB, steaks in the 120-140RMB area and a few fried rice dishes, including salted fish with diced chicken (35RMB).

Fresh fruit juices and blends also are available.
With elegant, abstract art on the walls and clean, cushioned booth seating, plus comfortable, padded chairs set in foursomes for groups, Sorelle’s menu and ambience continues to raise the bar in a strip full of ever-improving choices for diners and drinkers.
The café on Wanghai Road is a few doors south of the large, Coastal Rose Garden entrance.
