Little Pickle Deli Cafe, Bournemouth, Dorset

Amazing meals & great entertainment

A family friendly deli cafe promoting local produce from Dorset with delicious sandwiches, gorgeous cakes and great coffee, as well as lots of other yummy stuff!!

We love Dorset and the surrounding counties and wanted to bring some of the fabulous local produce to the people of Boscombe, Bournemouth and beyond.

We pride ourselves on using the freshest ingredients, Andrew bakes on a daily basis so why not come in and try one of his now famous lemon and herb sausage rolls or a chunky steak and cheese pie.  Share a Dorset deli board with a selection of locally sourced meats and cheeses or just enjoy a good old fashioned cream tea served in proper cups and saucers.

Tea and cake just like your granny used to make!

We can’t wait to welcome you back

We are now open from 9am – 3pm. We will be operating a new table service, please bear with us while we adapt to this new normal. We have some lovely new artwork in the café alongside the chairs from our lockdown community chair project. Looking forward to catching up with our regulars and welcoming new faces too


We are so very excited to be back and even more excited to see all our lovely customers.

Our priority is to keep you and our team safe and secure. For the time being we have had to pack away the book corner and put our sofas into storage.

We have done a risk assessment of the café and have implemented the following, hand sanitizing stations, tables spaced further apart and table service, contactless payments, additional cleaning and wellness checks on our team.

Our café is all about community and we don’t want to seem too clinical, so we have asked staff to make their own decisions about wearing masks, it’s not compulsory, for them or you.

We hope you enjoy your time at the Pickle, please respect social distancing and keep our lovely community safe and well.
