Peace Love Pickles, who just recently changed their name from Elsie’s, is a hidden gem tucked away on the White Horse Pike in Haddon Township, NJ.
WHO & WHY: Owner, Katherine Cohen, started making pickle sandwiches because of dietary reasons for her mother. Once some regulars got wind of her creation, they started ordering them out of their small market in Linwood, NJ. They were selling out daily.
She and her husband launched their first location in February of 2018.
They are the ONLY sandwich shop in the country that doesn’t serve bread. The name gives away their substitute bun—giant pickles, primarily made in-house but they also offer pickle and cucumber roll-ups. As if this concept isn’t unique enough, their menu offerings will have you salivating.
WHAT? Our personal favorite, The Jersey Devil, was inspired by the owner’s daughter, Lenin. The secret ingredient? Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
WHERE? They now have three locations in New Jersey: Haddon Township, Northfield and Atlantic Highlands.
Be sure to stock up on their homemade pickle juice and Bloody Mary mix. Pickle-backs anyone?
