Little Pickle Deli Café
Near Boscombe beach is the delightful Little Pickle Deli Café. It has been recommended by Olive magazine online as one of Dorset’s go-to venues and chosen as a finalist for Bournemouth’s Best Breakfast Award in the 2016 Bournemouth Tourism Awards. Reviewers on TripAdvisor have nothing but praise for this fabulous café.
The upcycled furnishings create a beachcomber setting with vintage shabby chic-style, and the comfortable bench seating around the walls gives the space a cosy community atmosphere, where people from all walks of life feel at home. Families are very welcome, and dogs are allowed in one half of the café.
All of the food is made to order and so can be tailored to particular dietary needs and preferences. Little Pickle is known for its Mudeford Quay crab sandwiches, available every Friday and Saturday. Also highly recommended are the homemade sausage rolls and locally sourced burgers, served with slices of Coastal Cheddar and buckets of chips and salad. Dorset breakfasts are served until noon, and those with a sweettooth will be pleased with the likes of a slice of Dorset apple cake or chocolate brownie. Pair your meal with a refreshing bottle of Fentimans Rose Lemonade
or a caramel latte.
Owners Andrew and Karen provide locally sourced homemade food for parties and business lunches, and vintage hampers for picnics. They have recently branched out into selling local artwork, and a noticeboard advertises local events.
