Sorrento Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 14 photos

Sorrento is a small little town of only about 1119 people which is located in Ascension Parish . The Parish is in southeast portion of Louisiana between Baton Rouge and New Orleans on U.S. Highway 61 near Gonzales and is in the heart of the plantation country. Within the region are sprawling sugar cane fields and beautiful cypress swamp lands which Louisiana is known for.

Our only reason for stopping in Sorrento was to visit the Arcadian village and the little shops within. Unfortunately because of the tropical storm which had hit New Orleans area the night before (which had made us turn back to Baton Rouge for the night), the little shops were still shop (other than the coffee shop) and if you got to close to the edges of the village, you were treading water that was coming up from the swamp areas. Still it was an interesting little diversion off I-10 and very handy to Baton Rouge (30 minutes) and New Orleans (45 minutes) if you want to take a short trip.

    I stopped here on the way home from New Orleans and discovered this lovely surprise, too. The Coffee House is an adorable little restaurant!
