Crisp sandwich café sells out by lunchtime on its first day

The sandwiches were popular.

BELFAST GOT ITS first crisp sandwich café today (actually, the WORLD got its first crisp sandwich café today) – and it was all sold out in just a few hours.

The pop-up café, run by the folk behind That Wee Café, came about in an unusual fashion – it was inspired by an article on a satirical website, Ulster Fry.

Andrew McMenamin, owner of the café, spotted the article, thought it made for some real-life inspiration, and asked Ulster Fry editors Billy McWilliams and Seamus O’Shea if they wanted to team up.

The result was Simply Crispy.

McMenamin told DailyEdge.ie before the opening:

When I read the article I immediately thought we could make that joke into a reality, and got in touch. The lads at The Ulster Fry thought it would be fun, so from Monday we’re rebranding the café under the name Simply Crispy.

The café offers a build-your-own crisp sandwich, with additional side orders like soup and chips. (You can’t have too many potatoes in one meal, right?)

Simply Crispy officially opened this morning:

And by around 2pm it was completely sold out:

Now they just have to do it all again tomorrow.
