I was an Oliver's regular for years until I moved away to the US. I miss the customer service and personal touch that Jim's team offers each customer. I have used Oliver's as an example when providing customer service training in my professional life. Oliver's is highly recommended.

My girlfriend and I often meet here. We drink tea. She sometimes gets a little something to eat. Always good. Staff is great. Nice place to sit and chat.

I love their coffee and especially the options offered by the espresso bar, but most of all I love that a local entrepreneur can offer quality alternatives to the bigger chain coffee shops.

Oliver's provides an unbeatable combination of great coffee and super good muffins and other delectables that challenge any Tim's lover to try a better alternative.

Everything was just OK. The cookies were better. They do not take credit cards. The service is friendly but slow. Seems to me they need more staff, but cannot justify it based on volumes. I have been there many times it it is still just average.

Yes, I'm a local who enjoys going to Oliver's. We appreciate that they use 'fair trade' quality coffee and it is reasonably priced. Their cookies could be better--they tend to be hard and a bit dry. Regardless, the servers are friendly and quick and the seating is like a living room.

This is a nice spot for a coffee break or light meal. The staff are friendly, the food is fresh and the coffee is better than at Tim Horton's or MacDonald's down the street. It's not a franchise but does have another branch in Bracebridge and in Bala. Interesting fact: the place is named after the owner's dog Oliver. If... More

I was really looking for an independent coffee cafe. The atmosphere is more along the lines of coffee time. I had my lunch to stay. My large cappuccino was served in a small cardboard take out cup. My Mediterranean wrap was good. Adding to the cheap atmosphere - having to ask for a key for the washroom.

Oliver's is a super spot to go for an espresso, latte or brewed coffee. Reliable service and food, always clean and free wifi is a value-add. Nice outdoor seating. Best spot in Gravenhurst to go 'for a coffee'.
