Nice little place out of the way. Coffee was very good, and the mixed fruit buns just blew me away! Delicious. Very good value and pleasant surroundings. We'll definitely be back!

Our friend took us here and it does not look anything special but the choice of food, the service and the value is superb. The staff worked really well together and were most friendly. You must find this place.

Great food and wonderful staff.Maybe a bit cramped when busy. But not really their fault if the place is so popular.

Staff are always welcoming an smiley. Food is always great too. Not had a bad feed here yet- and don't wish to either. Although, a little more mayonnaise in the tuna would make it better for that. All in all, a great place to eat.

Good salads and good for vegetarians. Our first meal in Shetland and we were enthusiastic. I recommend the paninis.

VERY overpriced and the food isn't even that good. Haven't been back since and others I know certainly agree. Shame really, has the potential to be a nice place with all the different foods.

Situated in the Toll Clock Shopping Centre, the Olive Tree offers a wide variety of snacks and dishes.The restaurant seemed to be very clean. We went for paninis, and our order was taken in a very friendly way. The paninis were then freshly prepared. They looked good and were tasty.

I visited Shetland in June and had lots of visits to the olive tree! I love fresh salad food where you can choose different things like buffet style. Not much choice in Shetland of fresh salad foods! Good coffee also here.
