Superb

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!

I have never been treated so poorly in my life. I do have a nut allergy and understand that The Pickle offers a lot of nut items on the menu. I have been to many places that are similarto their menu and never had been treated so rudely. I always inform my waiteress about my allergy first thing. As most... More

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

My recent breakfast at this establishment went well. The pancakes and eggs were certainly good, and I noticed that the waitstaff was a specially friendly. Given the hype of this establishment however, I'm not sure I fully appreciate or understand what all the buzz is about. You're sure to get a good breakfast here, but keep your expectations under control.

In a Pickle has great food for decent prices. But don't look for any atmosphere. It's small and so there are tables near the door. If it's cold outside you freeze there. Usually a long line on sat and Sunday.

This restaurant was originally located on Main Street in Waltham. It was not unusual on a weekend to see dozens of people on the sidewalk, waiting to get in. When they moved to a larger location on Moody Street, I decided to finally try and get in. The wait time was shorter than I expected. The young woman at the... More

Pancakes available with Snicker's, M&M, Cookie Dough, chocolate chips, coconut, & bananas. Topped with a mound of whipped cream. They are massive! I ordered the Stacked combo. Came with eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, potatoes, and toast. I added a side of pancakes, but it was way too much food. Worth it though!
