Great food, great service, kid friendly!

We stopped in for lunch today with our 6.5 month old and had a great time. There was a wait for a table but they said it would be about half an hour and it took 25 minutes. I always appreciate when busy restaurants get the wait time right. The menu is huge with extensive breakfast and lunch... read more

It's usually packed on weekend brunch time so expect a long wait time. Is it worth the wait? Considering there are a number of other places nearby, not really unless you love diner food. Staff is great - whether or not you have kids in tow.

I read the reviews and knew I wanted to go here. The late Saturday morning rush was there but I made my family wait for the seating. It was well worth it. The food was wonderful, coffee great and our server who was very funny and patient with us was excellent! I don't remember her name but I think she... More

This is the best breakfast I can recall having. Ever. I am a very discerning diner. Believe me. Great Italian omelette. The best home fries also!

Liked it for breakfast and brunch when it was located in small space on Main Street. With new, and larger space on lower Moody Street, In a Pickle has not lost its charm, excellent offerings, and great service.

This used to be a go to lunch location when it was on Main St. Their sandwiches were unique and awesome and the all day breakfast was great. Everything was above average or excellent and the atmosphere with eclectic and homey. I've been to the new location twice and both times I got undercooked pancakes -- raw dough in the... More

I saw this restaurant advertised as one of the best in Waltham, so my wife and I decided to check it out. When we got there, the line was out the door, we we were told it was a 40 minute wait. We waited, and to our pleasant surprise, we were seated in about 20 minutes. The menu had a... More

Outstanding food, friendly service every time we visit In a Pickle. Very creative specials--gingerbread pancakes around the holidays (yum!)--and every meal is better than the next. Do yourself a favor and try this place, even if you have to wait a bit to get in. It is very popular, so it can get crowded but I guarantee it's worth the... More
