Pickle Jar Cafe

“Farm Fresh, Locally Sourced.”

In North Carolina’s culinary world, diners and restaurants alike pride themselves on local eating. Somehow, the closer to home the food is grown, the better it tastes. At the Pickle Jar Cafe in Pittsboro, that statement could not be truer. In supporting local farmers and sustainability, their impact in the community runs much deeper than delicious meals.

As their chef, Mario Robledo says, “We strongly believe in supporting our local farmers, shopping small and overall sustainability.”

The Cafe’s Core:

The Pickle Jar Cafe’s doors first opened in 2017 in Silk Hope, NC. Their made-from-scratch recipes and delectable ingredients support a dining experience like no other. This is Southern hospitality at its finest.

Every Sunday is brunch and to find their daily specials, all you need to do is visit their Facebook!

Specials, Specials, Specials:

To get just a ~taste~ for what the Pickle Jar Cafe has in store, here are some of their past unique daily specials:
