We love this little place. Great coffee and pancakes! Good place to go for a wee pit stop or a Saturday brunch. Staff are always very friendly and even though it's a small place they are always very welcoming to children.

Glad we popped in. Busy little cafe with nice atmosphere. Food freshly made and tasty. Eggs benedict would recommend. Coffee fresh and good homemade cakes. Would definitely return.

We dropped in for a coffee and cake at the refurbished Olive Pip at the weekend and had a delicious piece of mulled-wine cake that was baked by one of the staff. I need to get back before Christmas for more.

We used to live in Broomhill close to the Olive Pip and we have been up recently for business for 12 days. The Olive Pip has become a frequent warm and very friendly sanctuary for us for a coffee and to relax. The girls/ladies who run or work in the place are so friendly. Very quickly we felt like welcomed... More

Absolutely gorgeous Eggs Royale. The girls we're lovely and really made the experience genuinely girly good fun. I'd definitely recommend if your in a group of girls, or guys who like a good brunch.

Always liked this cafe but it's even better under its new owners. The food was top notch and the service could not have been more friendly. Ideal for a quick brunch or lunch.

Amazing eggs Benedict and since they have changed coffee suppliers it is absolutely top notch. I'd defiantly recommend for brunch.

Myself and my husband and another couple had brunch/late breakfast this morning and I was a wee bit apprehensive before we arrived as we had heard there were new owners. However, we did see a couple of familiar faces as some staff were still there. The drinks/meals and the atmosphere were all as good as the previous owners and we... More
