Olive Bizarre is a delicious little spot in the harbour area of the town. You can enjoy exquisite teas/coffees with goodies galore and a view to die for. Our afternoon tea is highly recommended and our traybakes and scones will not fail to please. We have a vast range of savoury dishes and provide an array of gluten free and vegetarian foods. Our child friendly policy is also popular and to top it all our friendly team will make you feel very welcome. See you soon. John and Ciaraxox

Olive Bizarre makes the best coffee for miles!! I stopped by yesterday, Sunday August 30th, around 12:30/1:00 it was very busy, after a short wait people left a table and the very pleasant wait staff, promptly cleaned the table for us. There were 4 of us, I had delicious smoked salmon with cream cheese on a toasted bagel. My 2... More

Ive been here a couple of times now! The interior is very quirky. The toilets have gnomes - so if you are afraid of them, you may hold on!! The teapot comes with a wee cosy on it. I've had their orange and chocolate cake which is very like a huge Jaffa cake and it is just to due for!!

Tried to order food today after a walk up slieve donard. Arrived at 3.50pm. No one served us. I got up at 3.59pm to get menus. Told by some charmer that the kitchen was shut. Appalling customer service. Had a cracking lunch with super staff in Froth down the town. AVOID

For my birthday this year, I decided I would like to go for Afternoon Tea (AT) with my mum, 3 sisters and niece. I messaged the team at Olive Bizarre (OB) on their Facebook page the day before and was quickly responded to in a very friendly manner. Having seen previous good reviews I decided that OB would suit us... More

Myself and my family have visited this lovely cafe on several occasions for breakfast. They have a great selection for kids as well as adults and the food is good. I usually have the porridge with fruit, seeds and honey and my husband has a bagel with sausage or bacon & egg. Everything is well presented and tastes good. They... More
