My SP (Special Person) has relatives from Texas and Florida visiting us. This morning they all went shopping at the Eaton Centre, and lunched at the nearest Pickle Barrel. Despite some adverse comments from Chowhounds, it seems they enjoyed their meals enormously although they weren't specific about why, and wished they had a Pickle Barrel back home. I thought it was an international franchise, but they said they had the Cracker Barrel, but no Pickle Barrel. I'd be interested to know if you've had any experience with other non-Canadians eating there.
