Much to the relief of Granite Bay sandwich connoisseurs, Mr. Pickle’s Douglas location has reopened, and is now under new ownership and management.
Silly me, I had never been to a single one of the franchise’s localities. That situation has since been remedied. Not only did the staff stay open 20 minutes after their closing time on a rainy Tuesday to craft my sub, they even had everything I require of a sandwich shop – namely all of the ingredients to create a Turkey, Avocado and Cranberry Sandwich with a mass of veggies on a whole wheat roll. I was at first a skeptical foodie, but quickly found that the produce was fresh, meat piled on thickly, avocado buttery and the cranberry sweetly tart. Even the roll was mercifully soft! These days it seems that many sandwich shops treat patrons with a cattle-herding mentality. Not at Mr. Pickle’s. They graciously treated me with a relish (and a couple of pickles) that was a refreshing departure from typical fast food sandwich shops. Plus, you get a free cookie with purchase. What could be better than that?
