Olive and TIME

The overall ambience of the restaurant is nice, the owner is very personable and comes to your table to see about the meal and the food is good. Service time is slow, the main menu unremarkable, and if busy, you might share a table, though that worked out okay. But, as for a place to go for a... read more

Really loved my food, the atmosphere is awesome. What a great addition to our great city. I didn't get enough of it and still want to go back and look in the shelves and cases - there was just so much to see. I look forward to going back and trying something else because everything looks great. This is not... More

Just walking into Olive and Thyme is like being in a French cafe! The shelves of sundry items-from gourmet savory spreads to chocolate-is stunning and inviting. The food is fresh and very tasty and nicely presented on a wooden board. I had the turkey ,arugula and preserved Meyer lemon sandwich -served on a toasted rustic bread. My daughter had the... More

Never disappointed when I come here except for a long wait occasionally. The food is all top notch. I usually have one of the salads with a protein. The steak salad is great - full of flavor and texture. There is so much to choose from here - you can eat in or to go. Get a coffee and dessert... More

We had a lovely breakfast at Olive and Thyme (we were staying right across the street at the Tangerine). First - the atmosphere inside the restaurant/store is very clean, open, and airy. There are many cool things to look at/shop for. Second - the COFFEE. Oh man, Barista Kim is a master!!!! She made us a coffee we had not... More

We stopped in here before the WB tour and had a quick lunch. There were lots off menu options, as well as a deli case with different salads and desserts. The facility was clean and inviting, and the staff was friendly.

This is a popular deli/cafe with good food and coffee. It is open and bright and clean and a nice place to sit. There is no table service, however. If you are okay ordering cafeteria-style, you will enjoy the place. Lunch or breakfast.

That's a great way to start. The bacon wrapped fig is delicious. I had the salmon for dinner and the carrot & dill soup! Very nice and VERY friendly!

Nicely decorated restaurant with an atmosphere that radiates energetic serenity and classiness, yet casual and unpretentious. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. Food can be a little slow (maybe because we went there at 3:15 pm, which is close to their afternoon siesta closure between 4:00 - 5:00 pm). Food price was fair considering the neighborhood of Toluca Lake. Great... More

I must have passed this restaurant a million times and never took notice. The atmosphere is so energetic and so nicely decorated. We started our meal with the Hummus trio and were so happy. Three different flavors and all excellent. Both of the sandwiches we ordered were wonderful - mine a spicy chicken. Yummy! Mine included a fresh and delicious... More
