New Vendors for East-Side Food Hall
Crossroads Collective (2238 N. Farwell Ave.) has announced two local businesses will be joining the food hall’s ranks. SmallPie will be Crossroad’s newest vendor, while a partnership with Pilcrow Coffee will make full cafe service available.
The SmallPie stall will open in the coming weeks, filling the vacancy left by the Laughing Taco’s closure at the food hall in May. The cafe specializes in meat and veggie-filled hand pies, along with bagels, quiche, sliced pie and pastries. SmallPie is owned by Pie Inc., which also operates Honeypie Cafe, Honeypie Bakeshop and Palomino. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to bring our pies up to the East Side,” said Pie, Inc. managing partner, Valeri Lucks in a press release. “We are looking forward to being a part of the neighborhood.”
Additionally, Pilcrow Coffee’s beans and cold brew coffee will now be served at a full coffee and espresso bar in conjunction with Crossroad’s drink bar, The Pharmacy. While The Pharmacy already serves Pilcrow’s Cold Brew Nitro and Sweet & Creamy nitro latte, it will now offer espresso, drip coffee, lattes and caffeinated cocktails. “What excites us at Pilcrow Coffee,” says owner, Ryan Hoban, “is bringing our coffee to the East Side of Milwaukee in such a rad concept and adding to the rich fabric already curated at Crossroads.”
