On the fifth anniversary of Miss Molly’s Cafe & Pastry Shop at 9201 W. Center St. in Wauwatosa, owner Molly Sullivan – whose birthday was two days later – announced the opening of a new restaurant in the same building.

Sully’s Sandwiches is expected to open at 9211 W. Center St. by December, Sullivan said in a Facebook post.

“Since we opened we got married, weathered a pandemic, and had a baby,” Sullivan wrote in a post.

“As we enter year five we decided, hey, why not open another restaurant?”

Like Miss Molly’s, the new 1,200-square-foot shop will be casual, but with a more colorful interior. There will also be a kids area to keep the little ones entertained.

Sullivan is planning more than a dozen sandwiches – including both warm and cold options – in a grab and go format for both lunch and dinner. Sullivan plans to roast meats for the sandwiches on-site at Sully’s.

The eatery will also be self-ordering kiosks, and seating for about 20.
