Tasty small lunch dishes

A friendly café with outside space when the weather is nice enough. A great range of home made dishes. Free wifi. Good for a coffee, snack or full meal with helpful staff.

Visited Bude in Easter holidays and had lunch at The Olive Garden. Staff took our order in an unfriendly, hurried way. Asked for hot chocolate and large cappuccino to have at outside table but in takeaway cups. Hot chocolate came in takeaway cup but a small cappuccino was delivered in a small china cup.

Recently had dinner on a Saturday evening. Good menu choices for vegetarians and meat eaters, my wife had grilled halloumi with bulgar wheat and I had lamb both of which were very tasty. I followed this with an indulgent meringue, cream and fresh fruit dessert. Reasonable wine list. Friendly staff.

While the rest of my family ordered burgers I opted for the halloumi salad which was lovely but..... the burgers were superb... More

We have been taking coffee and cake at the Olive Tree for many years but until recently had never tried their evening offering. The reason for this is that apart from the Conservatory area, we have always found the interior a bit dark and dismal for our liking. Anyway, some local friends suggested we try it with them as they... More

Stopped here for breakfast - nice atmosphere, clean and welcoming - limited breakfast menu but lovely half breakfast for one of us and toasted tea cakes for the rest. Had to pay extra for jam with tea cakes though...
