Two-Item Diner Goes Expansive!

The Piccolo Cafe on Columbia Street in Brooklyn, which last month opened with only two items on the menu—an egg sandwich and a cheeseburger—has been expanding like crazy! Why, there must be at least ten things on that menu now!

Italian sausage on a roll, eggplant parmigiana on a roll, chicken parmigiana on roll, cold cuts on a roll—man, if you want anything on a roll, this is the place to go. If you're a bowl kind of guy, go for the Minestrone. And they're got fries! Yes, sir. The foreign delicacy, French fries.

Seriously, though, I don't know is the stretching of the menu mean Piccolo is doing well, or the owner realized you can't make a go of thing with only two food selections. It's fun to watch the place evolve.

I was delighted when this cafe opened with such amazingly low prices. Having gone there a few times, though, I must say that their fries were consistently undercooked (as in verging on raw) and, the last visit, so were their cheeseburgers. If they want to make a go of it, I'd suggest that they put a little more effort into the quality of their items.
