Pickle in the Middle

Coffee, Breakfast, Lunch

A locally owned cafe with focus on fresh sustainable ingredients, consistency and customer satisfaction. We pride ourselves on making almost everything in house daily, making us able to cater to all dietary requirements.

Pickle in the Middle

Everything from smashed avo to beetroot cured salmon

Not everything is pickled! We do however try to include something pickled in every dish, creating unique flavours with savoury options like a mustard zucchini pickle, to sweeter options like watermelon.

Pickle at home

We sell almost everything we make, from our Scandinavian style gluten free seed bread to our pickled condiments, for you to take home and share our unique flavours with friends. We also host monthly hands on pickling workshops to inspire you with over 30 different spices and the art of sauerkraut.

What our customers think

I don’t miss many days without a visit! It’s not just the good food and getting my daily kick of great coffee but Luke, Carli and the team make it even better with a welcoming atmosphere, and a very very personal approach.

Pickle In The Middle is a lovely regular spot to go either on my own, to meet with friends or as a favourite for my whole family. We all love the quality of food, the beautiful designed light space and the welcoming staff. It’s become a neighbourhood name and our favourite dishes will keep us coming back and back!
