Mr. Smalls Café recently reopened after six months of dormancy during covid. I had visited the café right before tit closed. Here’s my visit notes:
I ordered the Jordan’s Waffle Sandwich ($10), topped with house candied bacon, scrambled eggs, and maple syrup. Black pepper elevated the ingredients, which were delectable. Other waffle dishes dot the menu’s Griddle and Sweet Toof portions.
My dining partner got the cold turkey sandwich ($10), stacked with cucumber, red onion, tomato basil salad, and garlic mayo on a sourdough bread.
“Mmm,” she said. “Tastes like Thanksgiving.” She chose potato chips as her side. Other choices were carrot sticks, greens, or a cup of tomato bisque. We split the spiced hummus and pita ($6), one of a few starters. The hummus was creamy and garlicky.
I have had the savory Beyond Burger and the hefty black bean burger (both $10). The restaurant sells espresso-based drinks and tea from Millvale’s Tupelo Honey Cafe.
Mr. Smalls Café (and Mr. Smalls) is owned by Liz Berlin and husband, Mike Speranzo.
