My first (but not last) visit to In A Pickle was this past weekend. It was delicious. Tons of things to choose from, with things like Reese's PB Cup and Oreo pancakes to omelets and waffles. I have not eaten lunch there. The prices were pretty reasonable, but not cheap. Also, a lot of the food is really rich, so... More

This is a great place any day of the week for breakfast or lunch. The food is always good and the service is pretty quick and very friendly. Be prepared however, to wait for a bit on a Saturday or Sunday morning. This is a VERY popular restaurant for weekend brunch. Parking is available across the street in the Cronin's... More

We went there on a Saturday, and the place was packed with a 30 minute wait before we could get a table. We indulged our sweet tooth, and ordered waffles and French toast. Portion sizes were good. The sweet food can be a little too sweet, and the omelets were good. Overall, it was a good experience, and it's occasionally... More

I'd give 5 stars for the menu selections. I've eaten there twice & would go back. The 1st time my husband enjoyed his omelet but my Cheesy Chicken Omelet was overcooked. This 2nd time, the food was very good. I had the Loaded Multi-Grain Buckwheat Waffle which came with fresh blueberries, strawberries, bananas, & whipped cream on top. Tasty!

The food is good here but the old location always felt sort of yucky or sticky inside. There seemed to be a fly buzzing around every time I went... and the wait is much too long for that. (I wouldn't mind waiting in a long line for good food and a great/clean atmosphere, but if a place doesn't have both... More

I absolutely loved the old location. The service, ambiance and food were authentic. I´m glad it was popular enough to warrant a move but the plain decor and factory-like seating system killed the homey appeal of the restaurant. The service and the food also seem to have suffered a bit. It is a totally different place. There is still value... More

On a very cold morning of -13 C walked to "In A Pickle" for breakfast. It was amazing there were a lot of people waiting for their number. The staff were smiling and efficient while serving. I took Belgium waffle and coffee which I felt out of the world. The price is also reasonable. Looking at my fellow eaters they... More

Driving down from Boston back to New York we were looking for a location to have pancakes for breakfast. By change, we found "In A Pickle' on the internet. When we got there we had to wait 30 minutes but we are glad we did. Their Caramel Crunch French Toast is a must have. No kidding! The different pancakes we... More

Had lunch there with my daughter during Fall Fest at Brandeis. Sandwiches were good and very large....And service was really good, too. Would definitely recommend.
