We opened Mr. Pickles in 2005.  It was our dream to have a Mom and Pop place that would serve great food, give families a fun place to dine, and celebrate the amazing spirit of our Petaluma community.

Opening Mr. Pickles has been an awesome decision for our family.  We pride ourselves on having an upbeat atmosphere with excellent sandwiches and healthy salads.  With an incredible selection of signature sandwiches, we have found a great fan base in Petaluma. We love serving local families, businesses, and the local high school students who come over on their lunch break.


Our shop has fun memorbilia which celebrates local sports teams, musical artists, and community heroes.  We take great pride in our customer service and feel proud of the crew that we have established.  We love that they care about our customers and uphold our values.


In addition to sandwiches and salads, we have great catering options for business luncheons or family celebrations.  We love that we can operate a business that captures the local spirit of Petaluma and allows for us to be very involved with our boys. We are very grateful for our customers, and we feel very blessed to operate Mr. Pickles!
