A wet and windy walk around Upton/Widemouth on a glum December afternoon just has to be rewarded with a bit of comfort food...what nicer than butter-laden toasted teacakes and coffee in a cosy corner of The Olive Tree? Squashy sofas, hot strong caffeine, a mini macaroon, good company and welcoming and efficient young staff. Just wanted to snuggle up and... More

So many great places to have a coffee break or lunch in Bude but this is certainly up there with the top runners . Always great food and coffee and a warm welcome. Great place to meet friends or end a walk along the canal or beach. Will be back again very soon : )

The Olive Tree, Bude is an absolute gem of a place. My wife and I popped in early this morning for hot drinks. We had a read of the menus and decided that we would return for some lunch. So we did and ordered soup and wild mushrooms on toast, followed by tea and cakes. First class food that was... More

We really like the Olive Tree, which is why we went out of our way to pay them a visit, we were really looking forward to a coffee or one of their very generous cream teas but they were closed - for a few weeks!!!! Ah well, we'll just have to go back next year.

we got to know the olive tree several years ago,when they changed owners from the existing brasserie.while the menu may not suit all tastes,no roasts or steak pies for instance.They certainly offer variety and with the specials board and regularly changing menu,I highly recommend it for a snack or larger meal.There are are good selection of wines,beers and spirits,including local...

We walked along some of the South West coastal path into Bude on a recent trip to cornwall for a weekend break and stopped in Bude for refreshments. We stumbled across the Olive Tree near the beach and decided to grab a mid morning coffee before strolling around Bude. The place was buzzing for a winters Saturday and the staff... More

Serves us right really. A nice cafe but rather busy as it was half term week, which meant quite a wait for food/drinks.

This restaurant is great. Breakfast, lunch or tea you will be offered good service, nice food at a canal side location. Right next to The beach, it is a lovely stop off before or after a walk on the beach or in the town.

After a horrific dining experience in a small cafe in Bude the night before, the Olive Tree made our day. A warm welcome for us and our two young children, a great family atmosphere and fantastic freshly cooked food. Good range of choices for veggies too! Recommended!
