Very friendly, welcoming staff, lovely atmosphere & delicious breakfast....I love the fact that they use other local business's like M's Bakery to supply some of their food. We will definitely be visiting again.

We happened upon this lovely cafe by accident. Had a halloumi, avocado and cranberry sandwich which was very tasty. My husband had blue cheese on toast and we shared a substantial bowl of chips. We both really enjoyed our lunch and would recommend visiting.

The staff at Little Pickle couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, and all the food was delicious. Our first visit was for lunch. The children ordered something from the main menu, and unprompted our server offered to make a smaller portion of it. The...staff interacted with the children well, and were patient with them choosing from the many flavours of ice-cream. The cakes included Dorset apple, which we enjoyed. We returned to fit in a birthday breakfast at the end of our holiday, where the service was efficient and the food lived up to our now-high expectations. Our only disappointment was in the opening times being reduced from those advertised. When we're next visiting Bournemouth, we'd look to stay in Boscombe so we can visit Little Pickle again.More

I've been to alot of cafes all over the uk from Scotland to all along the southern coastline and in Central UK too, this is my favorite Cafe by miles. As you walk in it is friendly and feels very welcoming the owners are amazingly...kind and caring about the service, customers, cleanliness and food. I thought i was in a Michelin star restaurant from the presentation, standard, quality and taste of the foods. From being vegan friendly to meat eaters there is a choice on the menu for everyone. With most, if not all the food being locally sourced and very fresh i have enjoyed every visit there and always find myself craving more each time. Even to find myself craving it when I'm not in the area. Being a fussy eater I don't like to try new foods that often but this Cafe has worked its magic I've tried new things I thought I would never like and have always found myself loving the new taste. The mushrooms are the best mushrooms I've ever tasted and the same with all the food its outstanding. My favorite thing is the Dorset breakfast and the posh mushroom (attached bellow). However, I couldn't single out any 1 meal on the menu as I love them all and each meal has its own unique taste and flavor suited for each individual. It is an amazing place for breakfast if your going by yourself or with your family; Little Pickle Deli Cafe is perfect for everyone. I live about 1hr 30 away and the drive is worth it i cant wait to go back for more.More

We went to a nearly empty cafe today. A friendly waitress took our order promptly. We waited few more people turned up for take away, then another few more and few more.. we had ordered sandwiches, nothing complicated . The 2 people cakes after received...their food. The the people after them received their order too. So we enquired about ours. My husband sandwich arrived awful!. Then few more people received their order. 10 minutes later my all bagel arrived. Awfully made and no garnish. No apology for the delay again. Terrible food and no apology for delayed service. Would not go there again. Friendly staff but empathy, chef awful and no apology!More

Visited this deli for a sit down lunch today. I was meet by friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. My partner likes vegetarian and vegan food. I myself can take it or leave it. They still cater for heathans like me who likes meat too. My...partner had the Vegan breakfrast and i had the Farmers grazing plate. What a treat this turned out to be the food, customer service and atmosphere was excellent. They are also dog friendly so our Jack Russell ironically called 'Pickle' dined with us. Look forward to visiting againMore
