This Soon-to-Be Sandwich Shop Will Make You Crave a BLT

The new restaurant will open this winter.

Here’s something to look forward to in 2023: Sully’s Sandwiches is coming to the West Side (9211 W. Center St.). The restaurant space – currently undergoing renovation – is adjacent to its sister, Miss Molly’s Café & Pastry Shop (9201 W. Center St.). The targeted grand opening is early January.

While Miss Molly’s serves sandwiches, among many other creations, Sully’s (which is named after its owner/founder Molly Sullivan) will be predominantly a sandwich place. But expect some more out-of-the-box-type choices like a BLT with hickory smoked bacon and bacon jam on brioche; and pulled pork and coleslaw on a red pepper-cheddar biscuit.

Other more traditional hand-helds she expects to offer are a meatball hoagie and jerk chicken sandwich on house-made lavosh bread. Some breads will be made in-house; some will come from Milwaukee’s Troubadour Bakery. A grab-and-go area cooler will be stocked with prepared salads, deli salads, coleslaw and such. And the desserts will be different as well, with some taking a more whimsical-kid-oriented theme such as, potentially, s’mores pie and dinosaur-shaped sugar cookies.

Incorporating bright colors (pink) and neon signage, Sully’s will look different from the more traditional, modern French café look of its next-door sister business. Sullivan will further depart from Molly’s vibe with a fun, family-friendly theme to her nee place. It will feature a carpeted children’s play area with toys and a chalkboard wall.

She also doesn’t plan to have a front-of-house staff at Sully’s. Guests will order at a self-service kiosk.  “It’ll be very very casual, really quick service, so you can come and go at your own pace,” says Sullivan.
