A longstanding and much-loved restaurant in Jamaica Plain known for its elaborate breakfast menu will close at the end of March. Sorella’s (388 Centre St., Jamaica Plain) marks the final weeks of its 36-year journey this month, as the owners anticipate selling the restaurant.
First opened in 1983, Sorella’s (the singular meaning “sister” in Italian) started under the guise of sisters Ellie and Antoinette Bolys. Though Ellie passed away four years ago, Antoinette has remained running Sorella’s as well as another restaurant, the Dedham Diner.
Sorella’s serves dishes like cornbread French toast, a loaded breakfast sandwich, stuffed crepes, pancakes with all manner of toppings, and much more. Sorella’s also serves vegan dishes, and because of demand, there’s typically a wait to eat there on weekends.
A portion of the restaurant’s building has been listed for sale since last summer. Until it closes, Sorella’s will operate under abbreviated hours, Thursday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
