In a Pickle


Just off County Road 44A at the intersection of Radio Road is The Pickle Barrel General Store and Café, Inc. The menu is limited to sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs, but the food is good, and the atmosphere is entertaining. The café is on one end of the building and antiques are displayed in the other end. If you look closely, you’ll see dollar bills sticking out of random items on display. “That money is from a Vietnam vet who comes in occasionally,” says owner Kathy Lokey. “He leaves the money around to bring me good luck, and I really think it does.” Kathy calls herself a “picker,” but she’s finding she enjoys running the café just as much. “We have karaoke on Thursday nights and Bike Night every other Wednesday.” She serves beer and wine, and bikers, of course, are welcome.
