Great breakfast, fast service!

Had the morning off from the kids, so we went out for breakfast. Came in around 10 on Saturday morning, and while there was a line, we only waited about 15 minutes. The caramel crunch french toast was awesome, as were the eggs, fruit and everything else. Very reasonably priced and quick service... read more

Had another wonderful meal (banana crunch french toast with dulce de leche sauce-yum!) and our server, Asia, was friendly and got us our food quickly. She was so pleasant and enjoyable to speak with. The food is a great value, and, even though there wasn't a wait this time, it's always worth it when there is!

We were in from out of town for a small teachers conference. We read the reviews and decided to check it out, it was right near where I needed to be at 9:00am. We walked in at 8:00am, there was no line at that point but it filled up quickly. We had and omelette and a breakfast burrito both were... More

You really can't go wrong at In a Pickle Breakfast & Lunch. We stopped by on a rainy Saturday morning before 9:00am and were quickly seated. Many on TripAdvisor warn of the long wait times for a table. The breakfast options are plentiful but we each chose the Ringer, a combo of two eggs, home fries, your choice of bacon,... More

Love this place! Truly a hidden Gem of waltham. Food is always great and the specials are very creative and delicous! Every month my husband and I swing by for our fav. dishes. He enjoys the caramel crunch french toast, my daughter loves the M&M pancakes and I always choose one of the specials. Hits the spot every time :0)

Food is always good as well as service. They have some unusual offerings and great specials. Expect a wait in prime dining times

Went there for a Sunday morning brunch with my family. Everyone enjoyed their omelettes, pancakes, and French toast. Good coffee. Not a coronary- artery friendly place but how can you not love French toast stuffed with Nutella and covered with whipped cream!

Not much to say that hasn't been said on TA. Large portions of hearty food. They excel at pancakes and waffles and omelets. More selections than you can name. You can build your own. Big mug of coffee. Fruit cup was disappointing but you come here for the calories, not to be healthy. Be prepared to wait.

Special place for good breakfasts - omelets, oatmeal, pancakes and more. Healthy options too! New digs are larger but wait is just as long. Go and enjoy good solid food served by young enthusiastic wait staff.

One Sunday Morning, I decided I'd try a new breakfast place around Needham and after reading all the awesome reviews, I decided to go there - and oh boy - I am glad I did. When I arrived with my husband, we looked at each other like -"OMG", look at this line. lol. Yep, there were around 30 people waiting... More
