Smalls review image



28 Brackett St, Portland
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The tagline at this all-day cafe is “Smalls is good,” and while short and mildly cocky, it’s a fitting description. The space is, well, small but filled to the brim with items like local food products, fancy gifts, and beauty products to peruse at any hour. Shop for candles or handmade caramels while you wait on a turmeric latte or a steamed egg sandwich. It’s a great place for breakfast or a snack during the daytime but equally as lovely for a cocktail or glass of wine later in the day. Pastries and grab-and-go sandwiches, like jam and butter on a baguette, are always on the docket, while freshly shucked oysters, tartines, and salads round out the dinner menu.
